Welcome!

We are thrilled to welcome families into our new CLCA Preschool and Childcare Center, located next door to the Crown of Life Christian Academy K-8 building on the Bethany Lutheran Church campus. Entrance to the preschool and childcare center is just a few steps beyond the CLCA K-8 entrance, on the north end of the building. All families bringing students can park in the church lot and walk with their children to the entrance of our new facility.

Safety

We know that this year has caused unrest, uncertainty, and concern for the safety and well-being of everyone in our community. At CLCA, we have safety and security as a top priority. Doors are locked at all times and a key-code entry system restricts entrance into the building. In addition, we have procedures in place to address the ongoing concerns of COVID-19 as outlined by health officials for young children, including limited visitors and regular sanitizing of classrooms.
