Learn About What Makes The Loft School Special

The Loft difference lies in the direction and support given by teachers and families in collaboration. Activities that look and sound like children playing are opportunities being capitalized upon to foster growth. When children are given the time to explore their surroundings they can more easily make sense of the world around them. When we give them choices, they feel empowered. When we present an environment full of interesting play, they are more likely to learn and retain key developmental concepts. The preschool years are the foundation of future success both in school and in life. We believe that the experiences children have at Loft contribute greatly towards those successes.
