Learning Curriculum in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Little Learners Child Development Center uses "High Reach Learning Curriculums" for ages 12-24 months. The learning experiences in this curriculum are planned to help children progress in language, social, and gross motor development. Children are engaged in a variety of learning activities such as, listening to brief stories, rhymes, and songs. The curriculum emphasizes the use of language to communicate with others (needs, opinions, feelings, etc.) Furthermore, children are encouraged to participate in a variety of art, musical, and movement activities. Finally the program introduces counting, letters of the alphabet, and colors in preparation for the more advanced level curriculums.
