Our Mission

School Mission & Vision

The mission of Leap Ahead Learning Center (LALC) is to provide safe, affordable, developmentally appropriate environment for children ages six weeks to 5 years. Our commitment is to form lifelong learning experiences allowing every child to become independent, self-confident and inquisitive learners.

 

Philosophy

We believe that the first five years of life are one of the most crucial stages in the development of a child. The experiences children have in early childhood years help shape their future success at school, in the family, community and in life. LALC focuses on providing quality early childhood care and enriching educational experience which promotes each child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development necessary for lifelong learning. Within the center’s daily schedule, each child has opportunities to create, explore the environment, learn problem solving & personal interaction skills, and learn concepts through first-hand experiences. Children develop a positive self-concept through a balance of self- and teacher-facilitated activities. Opportunities for solitary play as well as group activities are provided. Staff serves as positive role models and provides care that is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to each child’s individual needs. We at LALC strive to give our parents peace of mind, providing an atmosphere that is warm, clean, and safe and secure for all children. All children are welcome at LALC. We are NAC accredited childcare and preschool center, dedicated to the care and education of multi-ethnic community of children where they can learn and respect one another.

We respect parents as the primary and most important provider of care & nurturing, and we believe parents and teachers are partners in children’s care & education.

We are proud to be part of community of Deerfield Beach since 1991.
