Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our philosophy is based on the belief that children learn through play. The LTCC Child Development Center (CDC) provides a hands-on, developmentally appropriate curriculum that meets the needs of the children as a group and each child as an individual. The staff works closely with each family to assess the child's and the family's needs within the child care setting.
