Autumn Creek Learning Center was formed to provide early childhood education in a home like environment that will be conducive to a child's total growth and development. Autumn Creek opened in September of 1999 with a brand new facility. We have a wonderful scenic view with landscaped play areas built specifically for our age groups. Our classrooms feature large open rooms with activity centers. Our school is protected by a security system.

A new way to help people in child care integrate culturally; responsive care giving with developmentally appropriate practices.

Helping children to develop self-discipline, self-esteem, problem solving skills, and assisting them in creating a stronger sense of themselves.

In the heart of teacher and child interaction, is a simple but heartfelt philosophy; "Teachers must deal with children with humor, compassion, and respect."

The importance of modeling the appropriate behavior...giving children options...helping children to express their feelings...the concept of re-direction...dealing with the needs of the individual child.


Our goals are to:


Help children grow up in a safe and nurturing environment; at the same time, assist them to become self reliant and independent.

Use age appropriate methods to satisfy each child's physical, emotional and intellectual needs.  Help children explore their environment through play.

Offer children a home away from home and help them adapt both socially and intellectually to a broader diverse environment.


Communication with parents includes:
~ Parent Handbook
~ Annual School Calendar
~ Monthly School Newsletter
~ Monthly Classroom Newsletter
~ Progress Reports
~ Parent Teacher Conferences
~ Annual Portfolios of Child's work


Teaching Staff

Our teaching staff includes teachers who have been with Autumn Creek since we opened in 1999. The majority of our staff have been teaching  at our school for 5 or more years. Many of our staff have obtained AA or BA degrees in Child Development or Education (or are currently working on those degrees) and many teachers have multiple years experience  in working with young children. Because of our amazing staff we are  able to offer low teacher/child ratios in our classrooms.
