About the Provider


Making friends since 1993! We are a half day program providng a fun, safe and nurturing environment for your preschooler to learn and grow.

Additional Information:

The Learning Loft Preschool (LLP) promotes an environment where children become independent, confident, lifelong learners with a strong sense of self.  We proudly offer a positive, child-centered preschool experience that fosters a love of learning in a nurturing community.  We offer a child-centered and developmentally appropriate program for three -  five year olds.  LLP has chosen to use the Handwriting Without Tears Get Set For School Writing Program.   Using this program we teach appropriate pencil grip, handwriting skills, fine motor activities,creative movement and social skills. This program is imaginative, creative and fun!  The teachers also use their own experiences, as well as children's interests, to adapt the curriculum to be unique to each LLP class.  Classroom observation and assessments become important tools for the teachers to communicate with parents.  Play allows children to learn about the world and themselves.  As children play they learn new skills, develop coping mechanisms, test new ideas, and master their bodies.  As children make choices about where to play in the classroom, they are learning a variety of skills.  For example, building with blocks promotes material exploration, as well as spacial planning, dramatic play and social interactions.  In the area of art, teachers emphasize the process rather than the finished product.  Our play based curriculum offers children many opportunities for positive interactions with other children and adults.  We treat each child with respect and reinforce his/her value as an individual and as a unique member of the LLP community.
