If you are reading this, then you are probably at a crossroads of deciding whether or not to send your child to kindergarten at LCC. As a public school teacher with two children who have gone through the LCC program, and two more who will, please let me share just a few thoughts with you.
First, the student to teacher ratio cannot be beat. In the public schools, most kindergarten classes have 24 students, some of whom have minimal support at home, requiring a lot of time and attention from the teacher. At LCC the maximum ratio is 1 to 14, but most years the classes have between 10 and 2 students. This much lower ratio allows for a lot of individualized attention and the opportunity to explore learning what interests the class.
Next, the kindergarten staff at LCC is incredible. Both teachers are extremely passionate, creative, and energetic. It is hard not to smile and have a good time when around them! They both definitely know what they are doing, but are never too busy to take a few minutes to answer questions or make your child feel like the most important person in the world. It says a lot when kids want to go to school and are sad when school is not in session. Not only will your child be with the incredible classroom teachers, but there are additional teachers involved with kindergarten who are just as passionate and caring.
Last, the kindergarten program offers the same extras as the public school (art, physical education, music) but also includes Spanish and Seedtime. The kids love learning Spanish, and as a parent I love that my children's education continues to be Christian-based. They learn about the religious holidays and develop morals that cannot be taught in the public school.
I cannot think of a reason why public school kindergarten would be a better choice to meet your child's learning needs. I strongly consider you to prayerfully consider this incredible opportunity for your child. Thank you for letting me share my passion with you!
