Founder of CKLC, Mrs. Leanna Henderson, is passionate about early childhood education and supporting families in need. As a proud woman of color and a Columbus native, she believes it is her life’s work to invest in the next generation within her community. She has her Child Development Associate credentials and is currently enrolled at Penn Foster to receive her Associates in Early Childhood Education. Henderson is currently the only private provider in the state of Ohio that owns three five-star ranked childcare centers. Henderson’s passion, drive, and commitment to excellence have allowed CKLC to flourish over the past five years.
CKLC was founded in 2014 with one location with a max capacity of 30 kids to be enrolled. Within the first year of operation, CKLC had reached their capacity and was looking to expand to a second location, which then launched in 2016. Henderson dedicated her time to hiring quality staff and providing them with training and development opportunities to ensure the youth enrolled in CKLC could receive the best education there is to offer. Families often provide feedback of their child’s growth since enrolling at CKLC, which has been the primary source of marketing and expansion. In 2018, CKLC launched its third location and increased its enrollment to 115 children.
To provide a strong christian foundation for children that is built on ethics and values that will allow them to have a high respect for themselves and the community.
