What is quality child care?
Early experiences last a lifetime! Your child has 1,892 days from the day they are born until they enter kindergarten. What happens on this journey lays the foundation for school and life success.
Caring and Educated Staff:
Research has confirmed that the person providing education and care for your child is one of the most important elements in high quality child care. The staff at LCC are a combination of warm, caring, respectful and educated individuals who seek to build a relationship with your child and your family.
Lower ratios and group sizes:
This means that teachers have more time to support your child's individual development and learning. 85% of brain development occurs by the time your child is three years old and the number of words your child knows when they enter kindergarten is the single most important predictor of school success.
Screening and curriculum:
In addition to vision and speech screenings, teachers score parent screenings on their children upon entry to LCC and assess their progression on an ongoing basis. LCC utilizes a curriculum aligned with Ohio's Early Learning Content Standards.
LCC has a proud heritage of partnering with other community resources to provide the best care possible for all children. Service providers such as Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Adapted Physical Education Teachers work on-site with both typical and special needs children.
Safe, secure and quality environment:
LCC has a facility that was designed from the ground up to care for children and to keep them safe and comfortable so that learning can occur. Our classrooms are neat, clean, orderly, and organized into activity areas. Children are given time to play and explore using concrete materials in order to enhance their natural curiosity and intellectual development.
