Earthshine Learning Center is a Montessori preschool and afterschool child care center that is committed to helping our students blossom and develop. We share a theoretical and practical ideology called “best practice” and we implement it every day to help children grow.

Everything that we do here is based on that core ideology, including our policies, procedures, and daily routines. To ensure our students have the highest-quality child care and developmental education, we follow an enhanced preschool program and educational standards.

Earthshine Learning Center is a Child Care Aware® provider and may be able to help with fee assistance if you are military affiliated. 

Earthshine Learning Center believes that children learn best through play and positive interactions with others. We provide hands-on learning activities and opportunities in order to develop social interactions, which are the keys to successful learning experiences here at Earthshine.

Our Montessori School Also Serves Hope Mills, NC

Earthshine Learning Center is a Montessori school and child care facility that serves the Fayetteville and Hope Mills, NC areas. Our Montessori school is designed to help children grow and learn at their own pace. At Earthshine Learning Center, we encourage our students to be independent, but also to respect boundaries and authority.
