About the Provider


LTLC staff respects the integrity of each child’s ability to learn by addressing the developmental needs of the “total” child. Children are engaged in activities that help to nurture self-esteem, reach developmental milestones, and support verbal and non-verbal communication skills. Trained/credentialed staff cherishes each child’s cultural background; and encourage the participation of the whole family in our program. It is our belief that the first six years of life are the most crucial for emotional, social, intellectual and physical development, because of this belief staff engages children in: modeling constructive, positive methods for communicating with peers and adults; activities that assist children to become creative, responsible, problem-solving individuals; creative ways to develop a sense of wonder and curiosity to stimulate a desire for continuous learning; exposure to a variety of concepts in the Creative Curriculum areas of language arts, science, math, dramatic play, music, block building, cooking, creative art and creative movement; “hands on” experiences where learning occurs through successful interaction with materials and peers; self-directed activity as well as group experiences; and a balanced, nutritious lunch and two supplements a day.
