Our Mission

Learning Ladder strives to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment that enhances physical, social and emotional development, values, and the cognitive skills needed to climb the ladder from infancy to preschool and onward to elementary school.


A child’s work is play.
Play Leads to Learning and Learning Leads to Play
