“Our program is designed to foster a love for God,” said Kyungmi Yoo, the director of the center. “Our teaching goes beyond preparing children for kindergarten. We will also be promoting creative development including critical thinking, reasoning, problem solving, and emotional and social competency.”

The church is located in a primarily Hispanic neighborhood and Yoo said the center welcomes children from all races. “We will do our best to meet the needs of this hard working community,” Yoo said. “We understand the need for a good facility and strong program in this community.”

To meet the needs of the families, the school joined “Pathways,” which is a local government program that provides financial assistance for low income families.

The center also installed CCTV system in the classes. Parents will be able to see their children anytime from any place through the internet or smart-phones.

The church has in the past used its building as a food bank. This is just the next step to helping its community.
