Our year-round structured early learning program is characterized by high-quality curriculum, small group instruction, individualized support, and enrichment activities. Our goal is for each child to graduate from LELC “kindergarten-ready,” prepared for success in elementary school and beyond.
Kindergarten Readiness and Daily Activities
To help our students become “kindergarten-ready,” we develop their literacy skills and expose them to science and math concepts throughout the curriculum.
Daily physical and interactive activities advance gross and fine motor coordination and cultivate social and emotional skills (such as conflict resolution and group play) and spirituality.
A nutritious breakfast and lunch are served each day, along with mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks.
Our teachers pursue professional development and receive coaching support, helping them to master the integration of curricular goals and standards into classroom practices.
Studies show that class size and staff-child ratios affect educational outcomes.
Data from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Study of Early Child Care involved a sample of 1,364 children from diverse backgrounds in nine states. Children whose classrooms met more of the recommended standards displayed greater school readiness and language comprehension and fewer behavior problems at 36 months old.
Research and teacher feedback both demonstrate that the most successful classroom learning results from small-group lessons.
Our intimate learning environments are the most effective tool to address our students’ kindergarten-readiness obstacles. Small class sizes allow teachers to meet students’ individual behavioral, emotional and academic needs.
