TLC is a STAR 4 Center! See our news tab for more information!
Our Preschool classroom serves ages 3 and 4 years old, with a staff to child ratio of 1:10. We provide the children with the Highscope Curriculum, a weekly theme and September to May a letter per week. We have small group activities time were children are separated by developmental levels to give them the best advantage of learning. We encourage independence and problem and conflict resolution strategies. We provide developmentally appropriate activities to foster all areas of development. Children are provided daily with indoor and outdoor experiences. During our school year the children go on several field trips to the pumpkin patch, Pittsburgh Zoo, Carnegie Science Center, Natural History Museum, Apple Hill Playhouse, etc. Most children should be potty trained or successfully potty training, not required. Teachers provide lessons and monthly newsletters for families, they enjoy special days with the children throughout the year such as: show and tell, PJ day, mis-match day, etc. Through the summer we provide the children with many outdoor activities as possible with fun summer themes.
No mother ever wants to leave her kids everyday but since I have to, I am so glad that I have Today’s Learning Childcare. It is a place that my daughter absolutely loves to go to every day. The staff is amazing — they are able to be educational while still being supportive and caring. My daughter runs to give several of them hugs in the mornings when she gets there and hugs in the afternoon when we are leaving. The director is organized and approachable and sets the positive tone that the entire place has. The center itself is always clean and well maintained. The best thing is that I am able to concentrate on my work during the day because I know that my daughter is being cared for so well and I know she is happy and having fun. I would recommend Today’s Learning Childcare to anyone!~ Amy Yeargers (Parent of our Preschool Room)
