SnowBallThe staff and management at the K&N Ellis Childcare & Learning Center at Lourdes provide care and compassion during your child's developmental and educational journey. It is our mission to provide a warm, nurturing environment that encourages your child to learn and grow.

Our teachers have experience with childhood development and principles of childhood development, including the appropriate supervision of children, meeting the needs of children with physical or emotional challenges, and behavior management and discipline.
