PK3 - PK5 Armleder Campus, Downtown

For our youngest learners, CHCA is more than your child's school; it's a vibrant and caring learning family where your child will be celebrated as a unique gift from God. Combining the best practices in early childhood education with the latest research on brain development, our curriculum creates conditions for learning that enhance your child’s capacity for thinking, discovery, creativity, and problem solving. We build skills in literacy, vocabulary, numeracy, creative expression, and scientific exploration. And by integrating Scripture lessons with the wonder of exploring God's world, we come alongside your child in building a foundation for lifelong learning and faith.

As our youngest students strengthen both their mind and their faith, they are prepared intellectually, socially, and spiritually for the next step in their learning journey.

CHCA’s Armleder Early Childhood Program is located in our Otto Armleder Memorial Education Center building in downtown Cincinnati. There are limited openings in the Armleder program, so early applications (prior to February) are recommended.
