The Longleaf Difference

Children who attend teaching preschools tend to be more prepared for a higher level of achievement in elementary school.  Selecting the best preschool can be an overwhelming task; however, it is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make concerning your child.  These years lay the foundation for a child’s entire educational experience.
Teaching young children effectively depends on an appealing curriculum that includes the philosophy, goals, and objectives of the school while addressing all aspects of the child’s development – from the social and emotional to the cognitive and physical elements.  Early childhood education is also a creative process that focuses on helping young children use the environment productively and on seeing themselves as capable, successful learners.


At Longleaf Learning Center (LLC), we use a framework for teachers and children to plan and implement an exciting variety of activities, projects, and key experiences in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology.  Our program, based on accepted theories of child development and learning, features goals and objectives linked directly to a valid and reliable assessment instrument.  In addition, proven methods of instruction are used to teach phonics, listening skills, numbers, and writing activities.  Children learn new concepts through engaging audio, visual, oral, and written techniques as well as “hands-on” activities.


Our approach helps children become enthusiastic, self-confident, lifelong learners in a stimulating environment where they can explore and learn about the world around them.  The LLC curriculum also includes self-help skills and kindergarten readiness.  This well-balanced program features fun, active outdoor play and quiet indoor play as our highly qualified teachers guide them through a wealth of absorbing activities.
