Throughout his teen years, he helped his mother working with infants and toddlers as well as babysitting. Throughout college, Ryan was a part of Reading Hour where he went to local childcare centers to read and teach preschool-aged children on an individual level. In his junior year of college, he completed a Field Study as a teacher at the Virginia Tech Child Development Center for Learning and Research working hands-on with the children. In his last semesters, he also completed an Independent Study (Preschool administration) and worked as an office aid at the Virginia Tech Child Development Center for Learning and Research.
Ryan’s Learning Center provides tutoring and extra help during the school day for those in public schools who are learning virtually. Since Summer and Fall of 2020 Ryan has been tutoring and helping families during the school day ensuring children are receiving the proper support.
Ryan’s Learning Center introduces a foreign language (Spanish) to develop an appreciation for the cultures of the second language. We also introduce the basics of sign language.
Ryan's Learning Center also takes pride in focusing in classroom exercise and outdoor sports.
Our curriculum is inspired by Developmentally Appropriate Practices, the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, and, most importantly, by the children! It is our goal to be attentive to the interests and theories of all children and to frame and facilitate a curriculum that is respectfully responsive. We are enthused and inspired by the many ways in which children represent their learning and understandings of the world referred to as the “hundred languages of children” (Edwards, Gandini, Forman, 1998.) These hundred languages are nourished and nurtured in our school. You will see a wide variety of materials and experiences available for exploration.
