The Early Learning Center is a part of Our Lady Of Consolation Church located in Parkesburg, Pennsylvania. We are located on Cemetery Road at The Schneider Parish Center. The Early Learning Center offers preschool programs for ages two to five. We have only certified teachers and well qualified aides in our classrooms.

We pride ourselves on family participation and involvement. Our belief is that you must engage the whole child, which includes family. We ask for all our parents to volunteer whenever they can.

Siblings are always welcome when parents are helping in the classroom, at class parties, and on trips. Activities are planned throughout the year for the entire family. We also have two parent/teacher conferences a year. However, the staff is always available to talk with parents about concerns at all times. We truly have your child's best interest at heart.

The Early Learning Center was established in 2002 by Mrs. Janice Dagney and Mrs. Karen Kibler. They began a preschool with 5 children and it has blossomed into a remarkable program for young children.

We believe that each child is a special gift from God to be nurtured, formed, and educated. Through coordinated, planned educational activities, a child will gradually develop intellectually, socially, and spiritually. In a safe and well-organized environment, the child will experience various age-appropriate activities for cognitive development. Constructive and free play bring together a child’s social skills. A knowledge of God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—helps the child understand and live our Catholic beliefs.
