Activities to Engage a Growing Mind

The Learning Lamp’s certified teachers use a literacy-based curriculum in every preschool classroom. This proven curriculum helps children build the pre-reading skills they need to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. Hands-on activities, arts and crafts, songs and stories complement classroom activities and keep children actively engaged in the learning process.

Convenient Locations and Affordable Tuition

Our traditional preschool programs are available at locations in Cambria, Somerset, and Bedford Counties. Class days and hours vary by location. Private-pay tuition is based on income, with tuition assistance for eligible families. Check out our schedule for upcoming open house opportunities.
