The Children’s Creative Learning Center, a four week summer enrichment program, has been in existence for 40+ years. Serving children from all over the Birmingham area, the enrichment program seeks to encourage children to select their daily plan of study, work at their own pace, and enhance their academic development. Whether it is encouraging scientific thinking with ramps & pathways or writing and publishing a newspaper, children discover how exciting learning can be.
