Play + Learning = Smart Kids
The philosophy of education at Airport Learning Tree centers on the whole child. The basic element is respect. A warm, loving environment, combined with a well-trained and creative staff stimulates a child’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual development. ALT provides a happy and comfortable atmosphere where children can build trust with the adults who care for them. Our children feel secure in the knowledge that they are loved and wanted. We show them the appreciation, acceptance and respect they deserve.
At Airport Learning Tree we believe educational development through play is the best way to encourage learning. Within our daily schedule, each child has the opportunity to create and explore. Problem solving and critical thinking skills are taught through self-initiated and teacher directed activities. ALT provides a world that is child-oriented and planned so children can develop at a rate that meets their individual need. We also establish daily routines that children can expect and cope with.
We teach children to understand and accept each other and to resolve difficulties without feelings of anxiety or guilt. We develop each child’s positive self-concept in an environment designed to foster a sense of independence and possibility.
We ensure that infants receive individual feedings and attention, auditory and visual experiences and lots of cuddling within secure and warm relationships.
To further enhance each child’s interests, ALT offers extracurricular activities including: dance*, gymnastics*, soccer* and swimming**.
*Kinderdance, Gymstars and Soccer Shots are contingent on meeting minimum enrollment. ** Swimming is available for our children in preschool and higher. Child must attend on the designated swimming day to participate.
