Our Approach

Our children have vast interests and learning styles. At DCLC: an Acton Academy, we provide children with the opportunity to express themselves in our art and music studio rooms as well as a "project room" for building small construction projects. 

Community

We care about our community. DCLC: An Acton academy is an authentic learning environment that is looking for ways to make a positive impact on the communities around us. We look for opportunities to build Biblical character and social emotional development. We want to support families in their quest to raise children who love, respect and care for their communities.

We Get Outside

We get outside. We look for opportunities to take our learning out of the classroom and hike the beautiful trails of Green Lane Park. We aren't afraid to get dirty while we learn through play. Research tells us that children's healthy development requires opportunities to move their bodies and develop critical thinking skills in authentic environments .
