Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The early education program at The Learning Place is both age appropriate and individualized. The staff consider early childhood development and the natural sequences of growth when planning the curriculum, and individualize the program by observing the child's individual growth patterns, learning style, and personality to adjust the activities as needed.
