Over 40 years of Experience and Expression
LJUMCNS, founded in 1972, is sponsored by and reflects the Church’s mission to serve families, especially during early childhood when the basic patterns for coping with life are formed. Our program considers the developmental needs of children in the areas of physical, emotional, social, cognitive, and spiritual growth as an interrelated and continuous process.
The school offers play-based experiences and materials for children to build knowledge about themselves, others and the world in which we live. Children are encouraged to express their ideas and understandings through art, dramatic play, stories, music, block building, sand and water play, gardening, running, climbing, and a variety of fine and gross motor activities.
Extending projects over time and watching curriculum emerge from the children makes early childhood learning real, relevant, fun, and exciting! Above all, we are dedicated to the nurturing, growth, and happiness of children. We welcome over 140 children, ages two to five, and their families.
