Welcome to College Height Early Childhood Learning Center (CHECLC). Here at College Heights we create a safe, caring environment where we provide students with a love of knowledge, the courage to excel and a sense of being part of a community. Students are encouraged to enjoy their learning, to show compassion and tolerance, embrace diversity, and develop a sense of self.


The success of our students is built on the partnership we have with our families and the Decatur community.  I am grateful that we have such an amazing relationship with our community and we will continue to strive to be the type of school that our families can be proud to send their children to.  Our entire staff works very hard to create a positive environment where every person’s unique strengths and skills are celebrated. The combination of focusing on our students’ academic success as well as their social and emotional well-being creates an environment where our students do amazing things every year.
