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.
