The purpose of Salem Fields Learning Center is to meet the needs of working parents and families in our community by offering a nurturing and safe learning environment for children.
The Learning Center’s Program
The Learning Center is established and grounded on sound Biblical principles. We will provide opportunities for children to thrive and grow, acquiring the basic skills necessary for their spiritual, personal and academic successes. We recognize that each child learns as an individual, at his or her own pace. We provide an environment with experiences designed to enrich each child’s development. We support parents and caregivers in the care and education of their children.
Our child/teacher ratios ensure that each child receives the individual attention he or she needs. Just as Salem Fields Community Church is a place of hope and love, our Center staff provides the kind of environment that supports families and nurtures the healthy growth of their children.

Infants and Toddlers
Our priority for the infants and toddler classroom is that they feel loved and secure. The infants and toddlers teachers will teach them baby sign language; they will read and sing to them as part of their daily curriculum. Toddlers need to see, feel and touch the world around them, and most of their learning will occur while they are playing.
These classrooms will gradually transition the children into a more structured learning environment. Children will enjoy center time activities, circle time, a time for learning, as well as music and art activities everyday!
Our Pre-k classroom and curriculum is designed as close as possible to the Fredericksburg Public school Kindergarten readiness criteria. It contains structured learning opportunities and learning tools like: journals, song and poem folders, pre-reading and writing activities, computer, process art. science and creative movement.
