Our concern is for the total growth of the child: physically, socially, mentally, and emotionally.

The Learning Lodge will provide quality education by using loving, creative and purposeful means to nurture and care for each child. Our concern is for the total growth of the child: physically, socially, mentally, and emotionally. The defined academic day is from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Each day the class will begin with a circle time in which children are welcomed and the day’s activities explained.  Arriving on time for circle is greatly encouraged.

Infants and Toddlers   Babies and toddlers are precious and delicate. We take pride in caring for your child with thoughtfulness and consideration. At this age, children are growing at an exponential rate, so we support their physical development with cuddling, tummy time, exercises and even a ballet bar for pulling up. We also offer educational activities like sign language (ASL) to build language skills, sensory art projects for hands-on interactions and encouragement of friendships for social development. Starting in our toddler rooms, students also receive exposure to a foreign language, increased creative art projects and a strong focus on personal skills like using a spoon and drinking from a cup.

Preschool and Prekindergarten   Our Preschool and Prekindergarten programs are designed to facilitate learning through teacher-led activities and self-directed learning interactions in a theme based curriculum. We intentionally divide the classroom into areas that offer learning in language and communication, math, science and creative arts. In order to prepare your student for Kindergarten, we focus on language building activities like letter recognition, phonemic practice, early reading skills, rhyming and understanding how print carries meaning. We are dedicated to supporting your child’s natural development and challenging them to succeed in a warm, caring environment.

School Age and Summer Camp   We offer before and after school programs for children ages 5-12 years. It is our pleasure to support families by providing a place that students can comfortably eat breakfast before school and a safe place to play once they are finished with their day. We provide transportation to and from local elementary schools, help with homework, as well as, creative art projects and outside play. When the school year ends, we offer a full day summer camp program. The students participate in a variety of field trips, creative art, water activities and volunteer opportunities. See our Summer Camp program calendar for additional details.

Specialist and Extra Classes   We also provide a variety of specialist programs that are built into your tuition. This includes Foreign Language, Physical Education, and Computers. We may or may not have these specialist classes running simultaneously throughout the year, so please ask for the current extra class schedule. We also host Dance Time pre-ballet, Soccer Shots, and Kids Klub Gymnastics Bus at our facility for a separate monthly fee.
