Our Infant and Toddler programs focus on meeting the developmental needs of the children in our care. The classrooms foster autonomy and self-expression through exploration and discovery based on our rich and inviting environment. Children at LPCC learn through daily hands on experiences.
Our Pre-School and Pre-Kindergarten programs are certified by the Pa Department of Education. Lesson plans correspond to the PA Early Learning Standards and address a variety of learning areas such as Approaches to Learning Through Play, Social and Emotional Development, Health and Wellness, Language and Literacy, Creative Expression Through The Arts, Social Studies, and Scientific and Mathematical Thinking.
Teachers plan activities and experiences based on the children’s interest as well as relevant monthly themes. Children’s learning is expanded by asking open-ended questions and encouraging exploration. Observations and documentation is collected of the children’s work and implemented into the Work Sampling System, an approved online assessment system by the Keystone Stars Program.
Our classrooms include different “centers” such as Dramatic Play, Fine Motor, Gross Motor, Music, Art, Math, Science, Blocks, Computer, Books, and a Cozy Area. Additionally, LPCC teachers enjoy interacting with the children both in the classroom and outside on a daily basis!
Kindergarten Before and After Care
Before and after care is provided for A.M. Palmer Elementary Kindergarten students enrolled in the Easton Area School District. The center has its own bus stop in the neighborhood that allows the children to be bused to and from Palmer Elementary.
A well balanced lunch, rest time, learning activities, and outdoor play are included. Full day child care is also provided for Easton Area School District closures at no additional cost.
Special Programs Offered at LPCC:
Techstars is an outside program offered weekly at LPCC for an additional cost. This technology program is geared towards preschool-aged children and allows your child to use technology tools such as laptops, iPads, tablets, etc. while developing academic readiness skills. We also have computers available in our classrooms for the children to use.
