Children's Place Learning Center

Providing a Preschool Curriculum with the convenience of a Full Day, Flexible Schedule

Our Philosophy and Goals

Children’s Place Learning Center has been established to provide quality child care to the community. We understand the needs of working parents and want to provide them peace of mind that every child is being educated and cared for in a loving, nurturing, and safe environment. Our curriculum is geared to support and encourage developmentally appropriate practices on an individual basis. It focuses on enriching the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical abilities of every child. Our goals are to promote security, independence, self-exploration, confidence, and recognition of diversity within each child. We believe that a teacher-guided, child directed atmosphere allows our staff to expand on teachable moments in every aspect of the daily activities.

Children’s Place Learning Center has been a part of the United Methodist Church Stow for over 45 years. It is an outreach of the church and is governed by a committee of church members. We are licensed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and follow the Ohio guidelines.

Parent/Teacher conferences are offered in November and May each year to review your child’s formal assessment. We feel that a school/home partnership is key to a child’s success.

We offer several special events for family involvement throughout the year. We also offer monthly in-school Little Leapers tumbling classes, Soccer Shots and SMF Public Library story-time with guest librarians. We have an open enrollment policy of welcoming children of all faiths.

Classes are Offered Monday-Friday, Year-Round 7:00am – 6:00pm

Angie Collier

Director of Children's Place Learning Center

Hello! My name is Angie Collier. I am the Center Director of Children’s
Place Learning Center. I have been the Director since December of 2010. I
have a degree in Early Childhood Education and Business Management. I
have been teaching for 20 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. The
world has changed in the last 20 years as so did the practices in which we
teach by. I pride myself on staying current with the latest techniques and
helping my staff of teachers implement them throughout our center.
We at Children’s Place Learning Center believe that every child deserves a
quality education. This is why our center provides curriculum rich in hands
on academics that will prepare the child for Kindergarten and years
beyond. The skills and relationships at the early development stage are
critical for later academic success.
