About Early Learning Center

The Spring of Life Early Learning Center is an extension of the church's children's ministry and exists to grow fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world by offering developmentally appropriate education, which helps children develop physically, cognitively, emotionally, socially and spiritually.

Our goal at Spring of Life ELC is to provide a loving, Christ-centered, educational environment for your child. Our staff is highly-trained, loves the Lord and is passionate about children and their learning. Teachers focus on making preschool fun and offer many hands on experiences for learning.

The Early Learning Center is one of many ways Spring of Life United Methodist Church is seeking to reach our community with the love of Christ and be faithful to our baptismal vows to "surround our children with a community of love and forgiveness that by our teaching and example they may be guided to accept God's grace for themselves, profess their faith openly, and lead a Christian life."

Our classes for 2017-2018 school year are currently full. Click here for the wait list form. This form can be returned to the church office, Monday - Thursday, between 9 AM - 4:00 PM or scanned and emailed to Kellie.Vinay@springchurch.org

August Announcement

We are excited to announce that our beloved Early Learning Center has a new Director. Her name is Kellie Vinay. She recently moved to Orlando from Burlington, N.C. Her husband Michael was transferred here with Signature Flight Support. The Vinays have 3 children, Kincaid (17 months), Ella (8 years old) and Landon (10-years old). Kellie began her career in early childhood development in 1999 with the YMCA. She has held a variety of positions including four years as an assistant director and five years as a director in 5-Star centers. In addition to her bachelor’s degree in Psychology in Child Development, she has maximized her opportunities for additional training. Kellie has taken more than 100 training hours in child development, health, safety and nutrition. She obtained a Level 3 Director Credential. That is the highest level of credential. Some of Kellie’s favorite things to do are spend time with her family, watch her son play sports, go to the beach/pool, sing, and make crafts. Her family has been attending C3 Church since they moved to the area. Kellie joined our team on Monday, July 31. She jumps right in to our ongoing preparations for our 2017-2018 school year. She is excited to get to know each one of you and, of course, our ELC families. Please feel free to contact her by calling her at the office at 407-282-8689 or by emailing her at Kellie.Vinay@springchurch.org. She reserves her Facebook connections for friends and family. We hope you will reach out and warmly welcome her to our Spring of Life ELC family.
