Scottsdale Learning Center provides more than just child care – it’s a home away from home, providing peace of mind that your children are in a safe environment.
This location provides infants through age 9 with a faith-based curriculum focusing on weekly shapes, colors, character traits, and enrichment classes, including sports and gymnastics.
Faith-Based Approach to Early Education
Passionate Christian teachers often share their faith through prayer, Bible story and song reading, and subject classes like science, math, art, and reading – these teachers strive to ensure every child in their care receives an optimal education experience.
Christian school students tend to outperform their peers academically due to the teaching methods and curriculum implemented and learning love for one another. Religious classrooms encourage individuality without judgment from classmates, making students more confident learners who raise their hands more frequently to ask questions or offer answers during class discussions.
Teachers participating in focus groups shared stories of preschoolers pointing out God’s creations during nature walks, kindergarteners praying for classmates attending grandparent funerals, and elementary school students creating artwork depicting Heaven. Furthermore, they discussed how vital spirituality should be integrated into every aspect of the education curriculum.
PVCP’s Early Education Center was specifically created to meet the needs of Christian parents and their young children. Our center offers an exceptional learning experience through creativity, hands-on activities, and structured instruction – creating a unique learning experience for your little one!

McDowell Sonoma Preserve provides wildlife viewing and picnicking.
Arts & Crafts
Painting, drawing, and other art activities allow children to express themselves creatively. Learning centers that feature such activities should contain a wide array of materials – brushes, crayons, and markers should all be present, and more giant paintbrushes should be suitable for younger children. Chalk is also essential; kids love using sidewalk chalk to draw masterpieces!
Craft a special holiday present using air-dry clay or decorate a bookmark using dot markers and shoelaces – these arts & crafts activities can be found at the Shop & Be Merry Holiday Market on Small Business Saturday and select Sundays in November and December.
Scottsdale Learning Center provides many supplementary classes and activities for children looking for an enriching education, including Animal Ed-Ventures homeschool programs where students learn about creatures usually only seen at zoos while making crafts with them and having hands-on interactions with them.
