Belleville's Premier Preschool and Childcare Center

Serving Children 15 months - 12 years

What Makes Us Different?

The mission of the staff at
St. Henry Creative Learning Center
is to provide quality affordable child care services to all parents in the community by the operation of an affordable Christian-based childcare program. We provide a home away from home, a loving family atmosphere to help each child grow physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Preparing children for kindergarten is our business.  Our pre-school/ pre-kindergarten program has received high marks from teachers in area school for many years.
