Studies have found that learning improves when children are engaged in an enjoyable and meaningful activity. That’s why every curriculum includes a variety of intriguing activities that stimulate early brain development with a focus on creative play. Although it may all look like kids having fun, it is also learning in action. It’s just another way that we make sure your child gets the most out of his or her preschool experience.
Additionally, we spend a lot of time just listening to and talking with preschoolers. This type of positive interaction encourages the development of emotional, language, and social skills, and enhances the development of a positive self-esteem.
Our Curriculum, The Creative Curriculum, focuses on the concept that children learn best through play. It is important for children to have opportunities to construct their own knowledge through exploration, interaction with materials, and imitation of role models. Our goal is to provide the foundation for children to achieve the skills they need before continuing their education.
At the core of The Creative Curriculum for Preschool are well-planned learning centers that allow for child choice and self-directed play, small groups, and supportive teaching that prepares children for academic excellence. The development of language, mathematical reasoning, and scientific thought is emphasized throughout all the centers. Changes to the learning environment, activities, and projects reflect emerging interests and individual goals. Learning centers offer guided experiences that encompass all the skills and understandings necessary for optimum development and success in school.
Typical centers include: Language/Library, Technology/Computers, Construction/Blocks, Science, Dramatic Play, Outdoor Learning, Art/Creative Expression, Music and Movement, Sensory: Sand and Water, Math/Manipulatives.

Children should be cherished and given every opportunity to succeed. This beginning starts with the first child care facilitators they have contact with. I enjoy playing a part in this role. To me there is nothing more exciting than sitting in the middle of a group of children and watching how they are able to learn from exploring the environment around them.
What Parents Are Saying
In the 9 months that Sam has been attending Partners In Learning, we we’ve pleasantly discovered how much more than just a day care that PIL is! Initially, Sam was diagnosed with traits of mild Autism and, initially, we thought this was to be a lifelong condition, however, with in-depth involvement and focused education by Sam’s teachers at Partners In learning along with the latest behavioral techniques incorporated by the PIL staff, has undoubtedly resulted in miraculous improvement by Sam. Sam’s learning curve as well as his social skills are now equal to that of his peers, thanks to Partners In Learning. Thanks PIL!”Scott and Deeann
