Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

From the Director:

As current research shows, we believe children learn best through exploration and developing natural curiosity and love for learning. The most important influence in a child's learning experience is his/her relationships with others: family, friends, and caregivers. Here at Schoolhouse Learning Center you will find a nurturing and supportive atmosphere for your family.

From the Director:

Our program uses The Creative Curriculum, one of the few approved by the PA Dept. of Education. This curriculum considers appropriate learning standards for each age group but also allows us to individualize classroom planning by taking into consideration the interests and needs of every child in our program. Small group projects are led by teachers, and students have ample opportunities to lead and create their own learning opportunities.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

All of our teachers and assistants have formal training and education in the field of early childhood education. We meet the highest standards and requirements of the PA Keystone STARS program.
Our teachers use consistent observation, small group activities, and one-on-one experiences to know and meet the needs of all children in their care.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Our goal is to help young children play and learn by providing an enriching environment and a caring staff that encourages each child's curiosity, creativity and self-confidence.
Schoolhouse Learning Center, Inc. was established in November 1987 with its Warminster Center. Since then it has grown to include a Warrington location in September 1991 and a Southampton location in August 1996. We also have locations in Trumbauersville and Sellersville, which were opened in June 2002. A Director, who is an expert in his/her field and holds a degree in Elementary/Early Childhood setting, heads each school. Each Director is fully responsible for the daily occurrences within their own center. They oversee and supervise their own staff for a program that is unique to their own style and personality. Our full time professional staff is supplemented by classroom aides and special visitors in such areas as music, movement and computer.
Schoolhouse Learning Center, Inc. is state licensed by the Department of Public Welfare and the Department of Education and welcomes children of all races, colors, creeds, nationalities and ethnic origins.

A Typical Day

Our teachers provide consistent yet flexible schedules for our students. We provide breakfast, a morning large group meeting, outdoor play, small group activities, lunch (family provided), naptime, snack, afternoon outdoor play and small group activities. Transition from one room to the next is smoother because children are prepared and familiar with our classroom routines and teachers.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

Daily written communication, "AlertNow" email reminders and announcements weekly, pleasant conversations with teachers, conferences offered twice per year and available as needed

Modes of Communication

  • Notes


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school
  • Parents in classroom early on

Handling Separation: From the Director

Our teachers work with your family to assist you through the process of separation, a natural challenge for many children. As every child is different, so are the needs of each child to help make them feel safe and comfortable in our program.
