Our Preschool and Pre-K classes use an app called ClassDojo so that our parents can communicate with us throughout the day as well as see their children's behavior each day, ouch reports, notes about special events, as well as photos of their children daily.
The infant classroom uses an app called DailyConnect where the teachers post when the children eat, sleep and get their diapers/clothes changed. Parent's are available to communicate to the teachers in the app, as well as view pictures of their children that the teachers take.

Green Room 3 1/2 years - Kindergarten
The academic curriculum used is the “Creative Curriculum”. This curriculum is state approved and recognized as a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Our curriculum is approved by the Office of Early Learning and consists of components which are physical health, social and emotional character development, language and communication, emergent literacy, social studies, gross and fine motor development, the arts, approach to learning, early reading and number skills and cognitive development.
We believe that while curriculum should be well planned, good teaching also involves being ready and able to catch the teachable moment by following the interests of an individual child or group into activities that may not have been pre-planned. We take the opportunity in this instance to follow what our natural curiosity wants us to teach the children at that particular moment. The Kindness Curriculum is used by all ages to enhance Character Development as well. Our creative curriculum is incorporated but not limited into monthly themes... ABC’s by sight and sound, Numbers, Colors, Shapes, Patterning, Cutting with scissors, etc. We believe that children learn and think by doing therefore we offer ample amounts of activities, circle times, and learning opportunities. Our Pre-k program is a pre-reading program that gives each child an early chance into learning how to read.
The preschool provides activities that offer a variety of choices designed to encourage physical skills, cognitive learning, problem solving, independence and early reading. Active physical play, conceptual learning, art, music, science, language development, early literacy and dramatic play are a part of the daily program. Materials and encouragement are available for children that are appropriate to their developmental level.
Art activities or table activities of all kinds are done daily with the children. These activities range from the simplest crayon and paper drawings to multimedia projects such as finger painting and collage creation. Our philosophy is that the process is important, not the product; the children are given a variety of open-ended materials and are encouraged to make what they will from them. We also believe in more structured projects such as tracing, writing, creating a project by steps…. Following directions, etc. Protective smocks will be worn for messy projects, but some painted clothing may occur.
Curriculum varies according to age. As children mature, they engage in increasingly intricate and challenging activities. Year to year, curriculum reflects the dynamics that no one group of children is like another. This flexibility allows our teachers the opportunity to assess the nature of their group and design plans accordingly

Purple Group 5 years - 12 years
During the school year, once the children arrive at Little Learner's (two of our teachers walk to Cajon Park school to pick them up, but we will accept children from other schools as long as they have their own transportation), they are given a snack and bottle of water. After their snack, they have a short free play time outside. After this, they have reading/homework time. The children are split up into groups (K-1st grade and 2nd-6th grade). There is one teacher for each group who can assist in homework and reading practice. Once reading/homework time is over, there is an activity planned each day. Those activities may consist of dodgeball, kickball, soccer, softball, board games, science experiments, etc.
During the summer, the children are given assignments to do throughout the day, an art project, learning games, reading time, fun indoor/outdoor activities and fun local field trips.
