Our Mission Statement

To provide excellent education to the whole child by focusing on the social, emotional, physical, intellectual, moral and spiritual development in a safe, nurturing environment where children develop a lifelong love of learning.

Philosophy Statement

  • Parents are a child’s first teachers and children learn best when parents are involved in their educational program.
  • A talented, well-trained dedicated staff is the foundation of a quality early learning experience for children.
  • Children learn best through meaningful interactions which encourages curiosity, discovery, and problem solving and allows for individual growth and development of a positive self-image.
  • Each child is an individual and all children are creative and need to succeed.
  • A carefully designed, developmentally appropriate early education program that is consistent with the values, goals and culture of a child’s family is highly correlated with a child’s sustained success throughout life.

Our History

Holy Child Early Learning Center (formerly Holy Child Day Home) was founded by the Sisters of the Holy Family in 1943 with a mission to provide high quality care and education to young children in a stable and nurturing environment, thereby giving the child a sound foundation for lifelong development and hope for a successful future.


The Sisters of the Holy Family established a tradition for quality care in our community. Today, Holy Child Early Learning Center is Reno’s oldest, nationally accredited early learning education program. In April of 2011, Holy Child Early Learning Center was awarded its third certificate of accreditation from the National Accreditation Commission (NAC) for Early Care and Education.

Holy Child Early Learning Center is a comprehensive early learning center exclusively for children 8 weeks to 6 years of age. All efforts and resources are dedicated toward ensuring a high quality, safe, nurturing best practice learning environment tailored to young children.
