PYLC has a wonderful group of long term teachers hired because of their genuine love for children and willingness to commit to enriching the lives of the children. Each has a qualified educational background as identified by the MN Department of Human Services guidelines. Additionally they participate in continuous program of in-service education to keep them current in training each year. All PYLC teachers and assistant teachers are required to participate in First Aid and CPR certification.
Your child will participate in a well-planned program that follows our 1-2-3 Learn Curriculum. Each day, the teachers design developmentally appropriate learning experiences to meet the children's needs for their age group. This includes opportunities for creative art, music, science, nutrition, language arts, dramatic play, cognitive development, large and small muscle development, outdoor exploration and play.
The staff at PYLC recognizes and respects the unique differences of the families we serve. We strive to present activities that are multicultural, gender fair, and disability sensitive. Teachers develop lesson plans based on the interests and needs of their group of children. Children are involved in weekly Bible activities.
We use the Brainerd Schools Early Childhood Assessment to track progress in the areas of physical, social and emotional, cognitive, and language development.
