Our Mission Statement

The Lumbini Child Development Center (LCDC) of the Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple aims to provide a safe, nurturing environment that promotes learning through social, physical, and intellectual stimulation and age-appropriate challenges. Based on our Buddhist principles, our goal is to foster an environment where children develop a positive self- image and cultivate a sense of community.

Lumbini Child Development Center is ...

  • a licensed preschool for children 2-1/2 through Kindergarten.

  • We have a year round program with individual classrooms unique to each age group.

  • Two snacks served daily.

  • Our hours of operation are Monday - Friday, 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM

​We believe that "it takes a village" to help children grow and develop -- parents, teachers, friends, and family. We also believe that children are naturally curious and creative. Their development can be cultivated by providing a stimulating environment with opportunities to grasp mathematical logic, develop communication and social skills guided by nurturing adults in their life. Art, music, and play are the language of preschoolers, through which they experience body awareness, conflict resolution, as well as joy and happiness.


Making choices and communicating needs is essential to develop competent and confident individuals. A skillful teaching staff can recognize learning capabilities and can aid the child to exceed the social and academic requirements for education.


We believe that a child's "work" is being a child.
