“You know your child best, so we are open to suggestions.”

I’ll never forget the first time I heard those words when one of my children was struggling with a specific behavior issue in school. He was my first, and I had no idea just how rare and wonderful it was to have teachers who wanted to partner with me to correct the problem.

Lionheart Children’s Academy believes this shouldn’t be a rarity, but the norm in high-quality childcare. And I’m thrilled to share with you today that they’re bringing that philosophy to a new location at Life Fellowship in McKinney.

Opening June 27, Lionheart Children’s Academy at Life Fellowship Church serves children ages 6 weeks through 12 years in a variety of programs. They offer full-time care, summer camps, and before- or after-school care for elementary school children. Their newest location is conveniently located off State Highway 121 between Alma and Stacy Road.

Why choose Lionheart Children’s Academy?

Parent Partnership is Key

Maintaining trust between caregivers and parents is a core belief of the leadership team at Lionheart, and they strive to maintain that trust. With regular communication and progress reports, parents can expect to be fully informed and play a vital role in the school experience with their child. 

Learning Should Be Fun

When children have fun while learning, they actually want to learn! Lionheart Children’s Academy understands this and focuses on play-based learning in their curriculum. As a former preschool teacher, I cannot emphasize enough how important it is that young children are both engaged and enjoying the learning process.

Nurturing the Whole Child

There are so many aspects to childhood development, and not all are academic. Whether that’s learning teamwork, developing social-emotional maturity, or spiritual development, parents can expect more than just ABCs and shapes at Lionheart. Students engage in weekly Bible lessons, memorize scripture, and learn how God and their families love them unconditionally. Individual strengths are nurtured and celebrated, and children are given a moral foundation that will serve them for years to come. 

Staff Quality

Lionheart’s hiring process is rigorous, and they refuse to hire just anyone to teach their students. They believe staff must be fully committed to loving both children and early education, and you will notice that difference the minute you walk into their school. 

If you’re in the McKinney, Allen, Fairview, or Plano area of Collin County and looking for a holistic, child-centered school for your children, I highly recommend you go see our friends at Lionheart Children’s Academy at Life Fellowship Church.
