About Us

Mission Statement
Children’s Learning Ladder is a preschool and childcare center designed to provide a developmentally appropriate environment for preschool and school age children. Our focus is to provide stimulating "hands on” early care and educational experiences which promote each child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. Our goal is to support children’s desire to be lifelong learners and responsible, considerate, and contributing members of society.

Our Philosophy

Our educational program is based on the sound principles of child development. Our goal is to give children a sense of self worth by helping them develop at their own individual pace while learning various age-appropriate skills.

We are committed to promoting and supporting all aspects of a child’s growth in an atmosphere of respect. Your child is an individual who is an integral member of a group and whose uniqueness is acknowledged and appreciated by that group.

Children participate in a variety of individual and group activities designed to develop language, math, and reading readiness skills. These activities also enhance physical, social, emotional, intellectual growth, skills, and attitudes which will increase their ability to succeed.

Daily activities are designed to provide appropriate experiences in the following early childhood developmental areas:

Social Development
*Getting along in groups
*Learning responsible behavior (such as sharing)
*Respecting ethical/cultural/age/sexual differences
*Expressing feelings appropriately

Cognitive Development
*Providing experience with math and science
*Promoting children’s curiosity about the world by encouraging observation, exploration and experimentation
*Building reading and writing skills
*Fostering imagination and creativity

Language Skills
*Listening, speaking and following directions
*Learning numbers, relational concepts and classification skills leading to problem solving
Physical Development
*Developing large and small muscle skills
*Increasing body awareness
*Improving eye-hand coordination and perceptual skills
*Exploring rhythm and movement

Emotional Development
*Promoting positive self-image
*Fostering cooperation
*Developing independence, initiative and trust
*Experiencing art, music, drama, and dance

Discipline
We provide an environment where discipline occurs naturally through a combination of support, encouragement and limit setting:

*Diverting the child and redirecting him or her to a new activity
*Have child take time out from an activity
*Providing a related consequence appropriate to the situation
