WE ARE ALL HERE TO HELP YOU
LEARNING LADDER PRESCHOOL
WHAT WE DO
We would like to introduce our family so that you have a better understanding of who we are as owners. My name is Josh Whitaker and I am the onsite owner and co-director with Mrs. Mindy. I played professional baseball for 6 years in the Oakland Athletics farm system. My degree is in education because I’ve always felt called to teach children. My wife, Katie, is a marketing manager with Moe’s Southwest Grill. In the past, she started out as an infant teacher and progressed to leading a childcare center as a director. She has a Bachelors in Business, her Master’s Degree in Marketing and is very passionate about the childcare business. We have two children, Whitley (6) and John-Wesley (2), who will also be attending the center. As parents, we know that the most important thing in the world is the safety and well-being of our children, and we plan on making that our #1 priority.
We are very excited about this opportunity and look forward to making this one of the best quality daycares in the area. Thank you for entrusting us with your children and we promise to care for them like they are one of our own.
We are open Monday through Friday from 6am to 6pm.
We serve ages 6 weeks to 12 years of age.
We transport to the following schools:
LEARNING IS FUN
Our center is based on the care and education of children today, so they can have a brighter tomorrow.
Creative Curriculum is based on the theory that children learn best in an environment that is warm, attractive, inviting, and centered around the child. Our student centered learning approach puts the child at the core of what they learn, how they learn, and what they can connect to future learning.
Research shows that children learn best through play, so we have structured our learning environment to facilitate this style of learning. We provide freedom within boundaries, engaging activities though out the classroom, and early childhood educators that facilitate but do not dictate children’s learning.
Creative Curriculum is based on the five developmental domains which include:
• Physical Development and Motor Skills
• Social and Emotional Development
• Approaches to Learning and Play
• Communication, Language and Literacy
• Cognitive Development
Many of our activities are based on the Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards (GELDS) and are incorporated on a daily basis. We set high expectations, as we know that children are more successful in this type of learning environment. Our goal is to provide positive learning experiences that motivate our students to learn today, tomorrow, and into their future.
There is also lots of time for fun. We have a large wrap around playground that is enclosed and private. The children go outside 2 times a day for recess.
