Lionheart Programs Nurture The Whole Child
Education is our priority, but we also believe an important part of a child’s life is about developing physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We love to boost physical activity and structured play while educating our children. Every child should feel valued and free to be themselves when they’re with us. We want them to understand their parents, Lionheart, and God loves them unconditionally. At Lionheart, children learn through academics and life skills that help them long after leaving our program. Most of all, we want your children to have fun and enjoy their day with us.
