ALC Phylosophy... A Preschool and Child Care in One Place

"Imagination is more important than knowledge" Albert Einstein

At Active Learning Center Preschool and Child Care (ALC), we believe that every child’s potential is limitless. We believe that is given a chance to flourish, every child may become a great scientist, artist, or a poet. We believe in introducing children to multiple mediums of expression (art, poetry, logic/science, music, etc.) We offer a structured environment and an educationally rich curriculum, along with ample opportunities for self directed play. While we believe in the importance of structure and kindergarten prep, we appreciate the importance of play. We believe that play is one of the most important ways that children learn about the world around them. Play is vital for their cognitive, physical, emotional and social development. To help foster play, we provide ample dramatic play centers and natural opportunities for children to interact. As teachers, we are here to support children in their educational experience. Above all, we hope to help foster and encourage a curiosity which will maintain their life long love of learning. ALC exists to not only help children develop kindergarten readiness skills, but also to encourage children to dream big. After all, given the right environment, there is no limit to what they can achieve!
