LDA offers a high-quality, full day Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) program for Toddlers and Pre-K 3, & Pre-K 4 students.
The specific goals are to provide our students with the foundational skills in literacy, mathematics, science, gross motor, fine motor and social-emotional development. We teach them receptive and expressive language. Lastly, we prepare them to be problem solvers, critical thinkers, and creative.
We offer a dynamic and flexible program. The curriculum provides intellectual activities with well- planned, teacher-directed lessons that are developmentally appropriate and interesting. Teachers pay careful attention to their students' interests, curiosity, motivation and developmental abilities. The teachers create a physical, social, emotional, and intellectual climate that supports learning in all of the developmental domainsTeachers regard themselves as facilitators of learning, developing daily lesson plans that specify particular content and materials, but always adapting plans to the momentary needs and interests of the students.
LDA's curriculum focuses on the development of school readiness skills (e.g. social competence, early literacy, and early numeracy).
Each student is a unique individual and teachers keep detailed records of the student's interests and skills so they can accurately facilitate each student's learning, health and safety.
