PHILOSOPHY & MISSION
Preparing your children for lifelong learning success!
Developing Skills for Life
We all know the power and the importance that preschools offer to young minds. Aside from preparation for elementary school, your child will learn the important socializing skills, as well as the benefit of constructive activity-based learning that focuses on a developmentally appropriate academic curriculum. We provide a solid foundation of fun and education, emphasizing on cognitive development, social and emotional skills, creativity, including language and literacy.
Our Educational Philosophy:
• We believe that children acquire knowledge about the physical and social world through playful interaction with objects and people.
• We believe that children learn by a variety of hands-on experiences.
• We believe that an activity-based curriculum can accommodate differences in development and learning styles.
• We believe that teachers are facilitators in the learning process and should be responsive to the individual needs.
• We believe that themes provide a way for young children to integrate formal concepts.
• We believe that parent involvement is an important part of an educational partnership between child, parent, and school.
• We believe that children should be treated with respect and dignity.
“The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
the more places you’ll go.”

CLASSROOMS DESIGNED FOR LEARNING
WHAT PARENTS SAY:
"My daughter is so excited about your early preschool program; she asks everyday if she can go to school. We are thrilled that she is getting such a creative and fun learning environment that keeps her wanting more. I love all of the themes, activities, projects, and most of all her teachers. I am confident that she is receiving an awesome early childhood education experience at the Learning Express Preschool. Thank you for such a wonderful program!" ~ The Perry Family
"I was recommended here by other family members and my son absolutely loves this preschool. The teachers are outstanding. The first day my son was hesitant to stay by himself and Mrs. Davis picked him up in her arms and said "Do you like playdough?" Of course, he said yes and they went on to play. By the third time going, my son was running into the classroom. From here on out, he likes to be one of the first kids in the classroom and looks for all the teachers the minute we walk in. I would definitely recommend this preschool to everyone.... GREAT, GREAT, GREAT Preschool." ~ Yahoo Local Review
"This program is outstanding! My son has attended the three's and four's programs, and my daughter is currently in the three's program and will be enrolled next year in the four's program. Why? Because in addition to the basics they'll need for kindergarten, they have learned to share, be respectful, take turns, make friends and many other fundamental skills kids need. They are exposed to different kinds of music and languages as well as letters and numbers. The instructors are exactly what one would hope for in a preschool program. They are nurturing, compassionate, patient, organized and always have a smile on their faces. My kids love going and they look forward to seeing their friends and teachers as well as what the skill building projects will be that day. I could say so much more, but I'll sum this up with: I highly recommend Learning Express!" ~ Meaghan McCann
