Early Learning Center
Our Early Learning Center is a recognized four-star Step Up to Quality (SUTQ) program serving children 18 months to five years. We provide a safe and nurturing environment for our youngest students to develop, learn and grow. LBCC works closely with parents and program partners to provide timely assessments and recommended health screenings. Our ELC provides a wide range of programs for our pre-school students including music, arts and yoga to prepare young children to successfully enter kindergarten.
Summer Enrichment Day Camp
The Summer Enrichment Day Camp provides a supervised, safe, structured summer experience offered for eight (8) weeks from June – to July for children in grades (K-6). Activities are provided to promote academic retention and prevent summer learning loss using a variety of activities including the computer lab, health, physical activity, creative arts, recreational activities, social skills development, field trips, and outdoor education.
Lexington-Bell Community Center is a provider for the MomsFirst Program in collaboration with the City of Cleveland’s Department of Public Health. The MomsFirst program provides support and information to pregnant women and their families.

Students benefit from structured activities to support academic achievement and social and emotional development.

Kuumba Arts Program
Our Kuumba Arts Program is designed to encourage creativity and provide nurturing experiences in arts and culture for children of all ages. Kuumba is the Swahili word for “Creativity” and represents one of the seven principles of Kwanzaa which celebrates our students’ rich African heritage. The Kuumba program offers classes and activities in singing, drumming, quilting and photography. This array of classes provides classes for students in the early learning center, and after-school, and summer enrichment programs.
