Lionheart Children’s Academy

Lionheart Children’s Academy – the new standard for excellence in early learning. Our passion is to support hard-working parents with quality, affordable care and education for their children. Our purposeful and holistic approach to early care and education ensures that your child has a strong and healthy foundation for learning and for life.

Lionheart Children’s Academy is a powerful vision to empower the church to take leadership of the child care industry for the advance of the Gospel. We partner with local churches to launch and operate academies in church facilities — offering full-time preschool, after school, and summer programs for ages infant to 12 years.

Lionheart blesses the church by attracting and assimilating more young families, generating additional funding for ministry, and handling all the operational concerns.
