The Learning Center for Young Children (LCYC) is a play-based, parent-participation preschool. We believe that children learn, grow, and discover through music, art, drama, cooking, reading, and sensory exploration. LCYC teachers and staff provide a safe and nurturing environment filled with purposeful and developmentally appropriate activities and provide opportunities for hands-on exploration in all aspects of their classroom. Our focus on the whole-child approach emphasizes social-emotional development alongside cognitive skill and growth. Children are allowed and encouraged to use their freedom of expression as they navigate the world around them.
The relationship built between parents, teachers, and staff at the Learning Center for Young Children establishes the foundation for our school community. When parents invest in this community, it demonstrates to children that their education and self development is important and valued. Parent engagement plays a crucial role at LCYC by establishing the basis from which children can feel secure, accepted, and confident to fulfill their unique potential.
