Excellent Early Childhood Education With a Faith-Filled Focus

Since 2016 the Love, Laughter, and Learning Center has been a ministry of Ocean Park Camp & Retreat Center. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life and add to the well-being of our local children and families and community, by coordinating with existing services and developing new services to provide programs, resources, and referrals that meet personalized needs and offer support to our local families and community. We fulfill this mission by offering quality early education programs to children ages 2-5 with a focus on school readiness, faith development, and an appreciation for Creation!

Nicole Campbell


My name is Nicole. I am a mother of four small children ranging from 5-13 years old and wife to a local fabricator/firefighter. I have worked as a medical assistant for 13 years before moving to the peninsula and becoming a stay-at-home mom. I currently am active in my church’s children’s ministry. I also am a volunteer firefighter with the Long Beach Volunteer Fire Department and a volunteer camp counselor with Camp Victory (a camp for abuse survivors.) During my off-time, I love doing arts and crafts, reading at the beach, and attending my children’s sports activities. My journey with Love, Laughter, and Learning Center started two years ago, and I am loving every minute of it!
