Learning Ladders has been designed to meet the physical, social,
intellectual, and creative needs of children ages 2 1/2 to 5. It
is based on the premise that children learn through play. Play
serves as a "child's work", a time when new discoveries and
friendships are made. Through play, children learn to communicate
with words, express feelings, explore, create, problem solve,
make decisions, and much, much more.
In addition to creative free play there will be a balance of
teacher directed group activities as well. Introduction and
exposure to letters, numbers, colors, shapes, and other beginning
concepts will occur in an introductory manner.
Our primary goal is that children learn through socialization and
play. Our secondary goal at Learning Ladders is to assure that
children are exposed to reading readiness skills, ABC's, 123's,
shapes and colors. To see that we follow through with these
goals, we seek to accomplish the following objectives:
*Develop a sense of security in group situations.
*Develop respect for others.
*Establish routines, patterns and
correct use, respect and responsibility for materials and
the surrounding environment.
a fun, happy and safe environment for all participants.
We have a variety of play areas and materials to help us
accomplish these objectives. A child's first social experience
should be positive and enjoyable. Our Learning Ladders Pre-School
is a happy and safe place for these first experiences to begin.
