Hello and welcome to Lafayette Learning Center Preschool! My name is Deanne Guastello and I am the Principal of LLC. We have been working hard this summer planning for the return of staff and students in September. We are excited to welcome you soon. While this year will be different in many ways, I guarantee we will still give your child a positive and supportive experience. The love and passion for Early Childhood and supporting each child with all needs makes me so proud to be a part of this wonderful team.
Lafayette Learning Center Preschool serves resident children between the ages of 3 and 5 with an experience that allows all children to grow and develop in every area of development and learning. At the LLC Preschool, we have seven classes that are built on an inclusive community, with a variety of activities tailored to all students with or without disabilities. In addition, we have two specialized classes for students with disabilities who receive intensive ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) and/or specialized preschool instruction.
Throughout the day teachers plan developmentally appropriate activities that encourage students to strengthen their language, cognitive, physical and social-emotional skills. Content areas are carefully integrated into these major areas of development so students can take part in daily, rich literacy activities, hands-on math experiences, exploration in science, art, and more. This year we are going into our second year with Creative Curriculum. Creative curriculum uses a project based approach and we look forward to your involvement with each study. Your teacher will send home communication letters informing you about how you can get involved in classroom activities and during remote instruction. Please check out more information about Creative Curriculum on our website.
Our Home & School Association (HSA) is open to parents of all children in the school! We invite new and returning families to participate in the HSA and join us in this important organization. It’s a great way to get involved with the school and your child’s educational experience. This year meetings and events will be virtual. Stay tuned for detailed information.
Each month I will send out a SwiftK12 with a link to our school newsletter. All newsletters can be viewed on our website at LLC Preschool Newsletters. Check out all of our past newsletters as well as our September 2020 Newsletter.
All the best,
Deanne Guastello, Principal
