Our mission is to serve every student with excellence; we cater to every student's unique needs. This center promotes positive attitudes and support where learning can be maximized by high expectations, accountability and the collaborative efforts of faculty, students and families. We strongly believe that it takes a whole village to raise a child.



It takes the combined efforts of faculty and community to help our children grow into successful adults. Join our stellar team of teachers/teacher assistants/drivers to directly support our program! We also organize volunteering events throughout the year where the MSLC family gives back to the community in various efforts.


We offer Preschool and After School programs that are known for focusing equally on academic achievement and developing emotional intelligence. Our students learn responsibility, self-management, social awareness, and above all, kindness. Find out more about our programs by clicking the buttons below. Current enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year for both programs is now open! Prospective parents, please fill out the contact form to let us know your interest and we'll reach out with more information.

Why are we named after mustard seed?

There is a Bible verse [Matthew 17:20] that says,
"...if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain,
'Move from here to there,' and it will move.
Nothing will be impossible for you."
