The educational experience provides a lasting value in the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual development of the child. Our Teachers Our teachers are professional educators, but they are also eager to help your child have a fun and positive start to their school life. Our staff meets all state requirements, and they are dedicated to the care and guidance of children through Christian standards and ideals. They teach in both group and individual settings to ensure that your child is developing the skills they will need for first grade and beyond.


Debbie Ryan

Moring Pre-K Teacher 

I have my Masters of Education degree in School Counseling from Wright State University. I began teaching at BCLC’s Pre-K program in the Fall of 2012. BCLC instills great standards for us to work toward, and I enjoy watching the children grow both physically and academically throughout the year. I love working with the children and challenging them to reach their full potential.


Bridget Kuszaj

Morning Pre-K Teacher 

I have my degree from Clarion University of Pennsylvania.  I have been working with children for about ten years.  I love that not every day is the same and each day brings new challenges.  I believe that BCLC helps to teach children about life, but also to help them in their spiritual life, as well. I believe that every person is important and that God has a plan for us all.

I have my degree from the University of Cincinnati, as well as several years of experience teaching at both the preschool and elementary levels. I am excited about working with your child and helping them begin a lifetime love of learning. The first couple of weeks of school will be spent learning about our classroom, school and classmates. After that, we’ll dive into a year full of learning and discovery that will prepare the students for Kindergarten.
