Daycare / Preschool Programs (3 - 6 years):
L&L Academy and Preschool was created to help your child achieve a higher standard in education. Entering first grade is a stressful time and we want to prepare our students for this transition by exposing them to similar topics that will be covered the first year. Through familiarity, your child can focus on learning the new material rather than focusing on an adjustment period. In the meantime, L&L also wants to instill values that are beyond the education system: The importance of health. Right start in understanding how to take care of oneself should help your child make positive choices in life. Besides embedding a strong educational foundation in a fun setting, children will be introduced to “core values”.

Children are constantly encouraged to learn. We use every opportunity to reinforce what we have learned throughout the day. For example, children must sign in daily to practice their writing skills. Our walks to the park are a great opportunity to practice counting to 100 or repeating the poem of the week, or reading words like “Stop”, etc. We constantly encourage children to play educational games like Bongo, Zingo, Checkers, or Connect4 during “free play”.
