I'm also excited for the playground." Marcela Lindsey, Cela's owner According to its own- er Marcela Lindsey, the reason for the move is be- cause the learning center has outgrown its current space. "There is a lot of traf- fic in this area and a lot programs moving first. She expects to be com- pletely moved out of its current location by June. In the new location, the learning center will be licensed for 87 chil- dren and is currently taking applications for clients.

Lindsey said the program will accom- modate up to eight in- fants when the center reopens. The pre-kindergar- ten readiness program will increase from half- day up to a full-day. The learning center also plans to accommodate between 15-30 more students for its school age program as well as increase the number of activities. The new location also gives the learning center a 5,400- square-foot playground area.

"The open concept is great, everyone sees each other, but giving the school-age children their own classroom is going to be very benefi- cial," Lindsey said. "I'm also excited for the play- ground."
