Spotlight on our Sponsors: Lionheart Children's Academy in Celina
Updated: Feb 27, 2019
Lionheart is a non-profit Christian organization committed to excellence in early childhood education. We are passionate about early education and equipping kids to be world changers, while supporting working parents who need quality, affordable care and education for their children.
We believe that children who receive a quality preschool education are better prepared to succeed in school and life. We are committed to providing the highest quality education for our children to prepare them for school, but more importantly, for a lifetime of learning. Lionheart’s innovative curriculum focuses on science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). Our hands-on program is designed to give preschoolers a huge head start on learning core scientific concepts.
While education is vitally important, life is not all about what you know. Well-rounded, healthy children also develop physically, educationally, emotionally, and spiritually. We emphasize physical activity and structured play while also teaching and practicing healthy eating. Our meals are especially designed to be tasty and nutritious – helping prevent and control childhood obesity. Most importantly, we want every child to know they are loved unconditionally by their parents, by Lionheart, and by God. Lionheart Children’s Academy seeks to affirm children and celebrate their individual gifts. Children are taught Bible stories and encouraged to memorize key Bible passages that affirm God’s love and plan for them. We believe it is critical to build a good spiritual foundation in the lives of children in order for them to grow spiritually and morally throughout their lives, giving them a plumb line for making good decisions.
At Lionheart we consider ourselves partners with parents as they love and raise their children. For us, that is a sacred trust. We desire to cultivate real relationships of love and support for our parents in the daily hustle and bustle of life. We communicate regularly with parents to update them on all aspects of their child’s progress, so they can reinforce learning at home.
It’s vital to have the right people in the right places in order to carry out our mission across each of our academies, and we believe we have the very best teachers and staff to do just that. We hire only the best and most committed staff at Lionheart, and we seek to provide a great work environment and benefits that attract the best people. Our hiring/screening process is rigorous. To work for Lionheart, teachers must have an authentic passion for children and early education. Parents will notice an immediate difference as they spend time with our team.
One of the things they’ll notice is the FUN that surrounds our days at every academy. A child's day should be full of fun and laughter, and at Lionheart, we take fun seriously, understanding that children learn and grow more through play and fun than through any other education medium. We strive to create an environment throughout the academy where kids not only learn, but have a FUNtastic time doing it. You will see this message reflected throughout the program - through our distinctive buses, daily activity plans, and team culture.
