The Learning Center (TLC) is a preschool ministry of Open Door Baptist Church, which was founded in 2002. TLC is a preschool dedicated to teaching God's truth through everyday lessons and activities while preparing children for kindergarten. We desire to equip our students with the knowledge and skills they need to start their educational experience in a positive direction. Emphasis is placed on the needs of the individual child to develop self-confidence and independence in successful learning opportunities. Our goal includes making sure that children are ready for kindergarten, which includes a balance of academic and social skills. More importantly, we want to partner with you to give them a firm foundation in their relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Some highlights about our program...
* We offer a 5 day program for 2-4 year old preschool children.
* Our hours are 8:30-noon, Monday-Friday.
* We begin preschool in September and our last day will be sometime mid-May. For the most part, we follow SDOC calendar with exception of some holiday breaks and snow days.
* We love using positive reinforcements in our classrooms.
* We use the SC Early Learning Standards in our program as well as a biblical and academic rich curriculum plan that we developed.  
* Our program is taught by knowledgeable, skilled and trained teachers who LOVE children and desire to help prepare your child for life-long learning.  We continually attend training to learn because we know that learning never stops!

We encourage parents/families to visit TLC to determine if this is the right preschool for your child. Registration forms and more information can be found using the links below as well as in person at TLC during preschool hours.

The Learning Center is governed by a committee whose membership consists of church members and the director, Jenny Lyle.

Well, as sad as we are about it, we are NOT in preschool right now.  We MISS all the children terribly and can't wait to see them when school begins back. Please give all the kids an extra hug from us during this time.  We LOVE y'all!! 

Even though we are closed right now, we are still enrolling for the 2020-2021 school year which will begin in September. If you would like to register your child, you may email the forms to Your registration is not complete until we have the forms and registrations fee.  Unfortunately, we do not have online payment options at this point, so the options are to mail the fee or stop by the church office and give it to Mrs. Vicki.

Since we have been closed, we have deep cleaned the classrooms as well as the preschool as a whole.  We can still do scheduled TLC tours (one family per appointment) if you would like or we can do a virtual/facetime/Marco Polo type tour if you would like to see the preschool but stay home.  Just email or message our FB page for more information or to schedule a tour with Mrs. Jenny, our Director.
