Welcome to the Church of the Brethren Learning Center

At Church of the Brethren Learning Center Preschool (COBLC), we provide a high quality, Christ-centered early childhood education program which recognizes that play, discovery and guided interactive structure are the natural vehicles through which children learn.  Our mission is to help children become confident in God and competent to serve.

Essential to the mission of the Center is the importance of moral and spiritual values, discipline, courtesy, and respect for others.
