The program at The Learning Company and Academy provides the perfect balance between the structured approach and the developmental approach to learning. We believe in meeting the needs of the whole child, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. We believe that this sound, early childhood educational program gives our students the tools that will serve them well on their educational journey. Our phonics-based program provides a strong foundation for success in reading.
The daily schedule includes planned activities related to the letter of the week, art, science / social studies, music and movement, creative dramatics and introduction to Spanish. These activities are balanced with outside play time where the children are free to choose between housekeeping, water play, free art, and manipulatives.
