Available Educational Programs


During infancy, children develop motor skills, experience tummy time, explore and learn through interaction with their teachers. Our caregivers for infants use this opportunity to work on stretches, leg movements, and ensuring the children are practicing hand-eye coordination in order to prepare themselves for the next stages of early childhood development.

As they reach late infancy, our caregivers work with children to develop those core muscles. They’re learning to crawl, express their emotions, and move their legs and arms. Cognitively, they are learning to identify and recognize family members and caregivers as they walk into the room. They’re even learning to produce those first adorable babbling sounds we love to hear.



The preschool program introduces your child to a cooperative learning environment where they can discover interests and learn in more structured ways. In the preschool classroom, caring and compassionate teachers help your little one turn everyday experiences into fun, educational opportunities. Your child will also learn skills like:

Our Advantages

Qualified Teachers

Qualified Teachers give LLCA's Program the formal knowledge and skills needed to become the educator, teacher and leader in early childhood education and care. Along with these qualifications, the personal qualities and skills make a big difference in helping children love and want to learn every day they are with our program.

Advance Learning Activities

The rise of the digital age has made science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education more critical than ever. Early STEM education can promote ongoing academic success, and children who learn STEM concepts throughout their education are better prepared to meet increasingly technology-focused professional requirements.
