Nature and Play Based Childcare/Preschool needs your help
Organized by: Jasmine Holdren
We believe that investing in children leads to a better future. That’s why The Learning Pond's vision is that every child has a great start in school and in life. The Learning Pond provides child care and preschool for the local population, placing particular emphasis on reaching low-income families and those with special childcare needs. Which include services for children and families who are homeless, non traditional families and families with non traditional work hours. The Learning Pond is a nature based to allow the children to really get to know their environment and explore the world around them. We are also play based meaning we don't stick to a strict schedule doing worksheets or anything. Instead, we use the power of play and opportunity. When we see a mud puddle we experiment if the rock/stick will sink or float, count rocks, practice our ABCs on the sidewalk, etc. Over the years, childcare and preschool program has given thousands of young children a head start in developing their early literacy skills as well as numerous established daycares, preschools, and nurseries. Early childhood learning years are critical for preschoolers because research shows that children gain a tremendous advantage in their ability to learn when they are taught to develop, not only academic skills but also non-cognitive social and emotional skills and behaviors that lead to their long-term success. Our Mission The Learning Pond improves all children’s access to high-quality early learning experiences by engaging with families, caregivers, and communities. Teaching Preschoolers Pre-Reading Skills Improves Academic Development, Promotes Lifelong Learning, Increases Family Engagement, and Instills Confidence and Perseverance When Faced With Challenges We believe that time spent at The Learning Pond can enhance the lives of children who may not have many opportunities to play and build the skills of parents and caregivers. From national research and personal experience, we know that this investment in children, families and play can create lasting positive benefits.
