Valley Kids Learning Center is a distinctly Christian environment caring for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years old.

Our Mission

Valley Kids Learning Center exists to provide a safe, loving and nurturing environment for the Kalamazoo community that helps children experience success in learning and success in life!  


Our goal is to provide childcare in a safe and secure Christian atmosphere where each child feels nurtured and loved during their most formative years. Scripture tells us in Proverbs 22:6 to “train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” The Valley Kids Learning Center approach to childcare is based on Biblical, Christian values and we want each child to know and understand God’s love for them from an early age.

We love kids and want them to grow and develop into the well-rounded, independent individuals that God created them to be. At VKLC, we provide personalized learning through qualified individuals and challenging academics that prepare children for life in a global environment.

Valley Kids Learning Center, embraces the fact that play positively supports children’s social, emotional, physical, cognitive, language, and literacy skills, and is essential to a child’s overall healthy development. (Ginsburg, 2007; Packer Olsenberg & Quisenberry, 2002). When children play, it contributes to the growth of self-regulation and social skills such as turn-taking, collaboration, following rules, empathy, and motivation. (Bedrova & Leong, 2007; Kraft & Berk, 1998). With this in mind, we encourage all children to participate in a variety of activities, both indoors and outdoors, on a daily basis. 

From beginning to end, God speaks about the importance of children through his Word. Because children are important to God, children are important to us! With this in mind, all kids at VKLC are treated with respect and kindness for who they are as individuals.

Because we love each child...

we believe they should receive care in a secure, safe, and nurturing environment.
