A unique blend of education models, LADC uses the Creative Curriculum to create a stimulating environment with Daily Learning Centers that incorporate skill building, creative arts, science, math, dramatic play, sensory, literature, writing, individualized cooking and music. The Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) philosophy is also embraced, as LADC believes the parent is the first and most important teacher in a child’s life, as well as in the theme-based centers with directional signs that facilitate parent/child interaction. Many of the cognitive games are homemade, giving parents ideas of activities that can be done at home.
