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.



Goals


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 sharing behavior.
 *Learn problem-solving skills.
*Learn correct use, respect and responsibility for materials and equipment.
*Explore the surrounding environment.
*Provide 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.
