We take pride in providing a structure with flexibility. In our loving environment, we ensure that the kids’ intellect and knowledge about life and the world around them will grow immensely. At Patch Learning Center, we believe that your child learns best when permitted to play and explore at their maximum potential.
At Patch Learning Center, our curriculum guarantees the focus of your child on all areas of literacy. We know how your preschooler thinks, reasons, creates, and recreates, as they occupy in the learning process. We refine each child’s ability to make age-appropriate progress in all domains of development, including cognitive and general knowledge, language and communication, emotional, social and morality, motor development, and emergent literacy.
Your child will be aware of empathy, diversity, and compromise through modeling, play, and traditional teaching methods. Our weekly lessons include cooking and nutrition to the sensitivity of others. Children will also continue their essential education through various curriculums providing knowledge in all levels of development. When your child arrives at school, we will offer a range of activities for your child to be active and engaged. He/she will continue to practice a variety of skills throughout the day. We’re confident your child will look forward to telling you all about their exciting and fun-filled day at Patch Learning Center.
