Holy Spirit Parkside Early Learning Center (HSPELC) is guided by the belief that nurturing the child nurtures the entire family. Our goal is to provide a loving, Christian environment that encourages every child’s cognitive, physical, emotional, and spiritual development.  Through structured daily activities we provide a safe, positive, creative environment in which to educate through FUN!

We are a ministry of Holy Spirit Catholic Church and have been serving children, families and the community since 1998. We encourage the development of the whole child, supporting families, and encouraging active participation in our community through service and volunteer opportunities. HSPELC is licensed through the Kentucky Office of Inspector General, Division of Regulated Child Care and is a 4 Star rated facility.

Curriculum & Daily Schedules
Each group participates in a “circle time” with the Pledge of Allegiance and prayer. Calendar, Weather and weekly themes are presented based on developmentally appropriate guidelines.  Daily Activities include Music, Art, Science, Math, Language & Physical activities. HSPELC incorporates Christian values into our daily activities. We teach kindness, patience, gratitude and sharing as well as helping children understand that we are each a child of God and should love each other the way God loves us.

Darla Price, Lead Teacher for Red Dogs (3-4 yr olds) – “I’ve always felt serving children and families was my calling. After 19 years I still get excited when a child recites their ABC’s or masters a new skill for the first time.  I feel blessed, to be given the opportunity to instill a love of learning in each child. I want every child to feel loved, safe, and free to grow and develop into the best people they can be.”
