Our prime goal is to provide a caring and nurturing environment for our children. LALC teachers work individually with each child, accommodating each child’s physical, cognitive and psychological stages of development. Infants alternate between activities, exploration of play, individual feeding and rest times. Children are rocked, and read to on a one-on-one basis.An accredited approved curriculum is used in our classroom beginning in our infant room. Children experience the outdoors during the buggy rides around the school and out on the playground as soon as they are old enough to sit up and weather permitting. Our room has a “no shoe” policy to keep the environment as clean as possible. Our room is filled with age appropriate toys for children to crawl, play and discover with. Three meals a day or 3 bottles of formula and baby food are provided to our infants at no additional cost to our parents. Children are fed and changed regularly, as needed. Our teachers love, nurture, reassure, and comfort the children in our care.

Happy Parent's Say
My name is Linda Telfort and my son Preston Mckenzie has attended Leap ahead learning center since he was 6 months and the school has been nothing but great to him. He is learning new things everyday and reminds me constantly of the great teachers he have. All the staff members including Ms.Flavia has been very helpful and welcoming. The school is not only a learning place for my child but also family. It is great news to hear Ms.Flavia will be the new director as she is understanding, helpful and a great role model to have around my son.
Becoming a new mom after 15 years was exciting and scary at the same time. Finding a reliable place to care for your new bundle of joy was terrifying. From the 1st time I called the center it was a breathe of fresh air. The person on the phone was very pleasant and knowledgeable. I scheduled a tour that same day and filled out all the paperwork right away. They made sure all his shots and physical were up to date and he started the following week. The staff and management team welcome me and my son with open arms.
