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 wholeheartedly 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, and drivers to directly support our program! We also organize volunteering events throughout the year where MSLC Parents and Students volunteer their time to help the community.


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