School Reviews

Leland Christian Academy is the best full-time preschool in the area. Both of my children are attending preschool here and we could not be happier with the school, academic programs, teachers and staff. The teachers are loving and attentive and provide a happy and caring environment for my kids. The school has a full time chef that cooks lunches and snacks from scratch. The menu is constantly improving and my kids love the food. The school has recently added a new playground for ages 6 months - 2 years and is working to upgrade the playgrounds for ages 3 - 4. I also love that daily my kids are learning the Bible and praying at school. The school also offers an enrichment program for ages 2-4 including art, music, chapel and science!
