Upper Room Programs

Early Learning Center Coming Soon

On December 21, 2022, our Early Learning Center facility was vandalized beyond repair. We are diligently working on renovations for a new location, but until then, the Early Learning Center is closed.

We will continue to keep all parents updated, but send us a direct message if you have any questions. We will do our best to provide you with answers and updates as they are shared with us.

– Dr. Tonia Gilbert, Upper Room KC CEO
