From the Director:

At Abiding Love we believe children learn best through play and with hands-on experiences. Age appropriate Art, Blocks, Chapel, Dramatic Play, Books, Manipulatives, Science Sensory and Outdoor Centers are all part of the child's learning environment each day. The weekly themes reflect on anti bias and multicultural emphasis. Special activities, displays, and theme oriented visitors are planned throughout the year.
