Providing Quality Educational Programs since 1981

learning center logoChristus Victor Learning Center exists out of a deep concern for parents and their children. Our purpose is to serve as an extension of your home by providing a quality early education experience in a Christian setting. Our program offers a chance to grow and develop physically, spiritually, socially, emotionally, and intellectually in an atmosphere primarily designed to help children for a positive sense of self and positive life values.

The State of Michigan Family Independence Agency License for the Care of Children has been issued to Christus Victor Child Care Center for the care of children 6 weeks to 5 years of age and school-age children 5 years through age 12. We operate year round and offer full and half day learning programs for preschool, toddler, and infant age children. During the school year we offer before- and after- school care for children who attend local area elementary and middle schools. In the summer and during holidays we have a “Summer Fun Club” for school-age children.

Mission
