Frequently Asked Questions

Our goal is to help children learn human values, problem solving skills, and to take responsibility for their own choices. By using progressive guidance techniques, we strive to minimize inappropriate behavior while creating a positive environment for all of our children. LHLC does not permit the use of corporal punishment, emotional punishment (including threats to use physical punishment, or humiliation), punishing a child for lapses in toilet training habits, withholding food, light, warmth, clothing or medical care, physical restraint other than the restraint necessary to protect a child or others from harm.

Yes! Our playground is stocked with swings, a slide, and other ride-on equipment. We also have tricycles and child-size houses for make believe play. For added security, the playground is located within a gated and locked area. On all warm and dry days, each class spends time on the playground.

Yes, we provide field trips to enhance our on site learning. Fernbank Museum of Natural History, Mayfield Dairy Farms, Sesame Street Live, and Berry Farms Pumpkin Patch are just a few of our past field trip destinations.

Many LHLC teachers have degrees in early childhood education. Others are enhancing their experience through CDA programs. In accordance with state regulations, all staff is trained in First Aid/CPR, Infectious Disease Control, Injury Prevention, and Child Abuse Awareness. Additional training in curriculum, child development, classroom arrangement, classroom management, and age appropriate activities is provided at our facility. Each teacher is required to complete weekly lesson plans driven by a theme of the month, and periodic progress reports. Finally, to ensure that the bible-based values that are taught to the children are first a part of the lives of their teachers, each teacher participates in spiritual enrichment and reflection.

Our experience tells us that potty training begins to become important to families around a child's 2nd year. That is one of the reasons we begin having class potty breaks in the two year old classroom. Nevertheless, beginning with the toddler room, each of our classrooms is equipped with a bathroom with two commodes and a divider that separates them. So in any classroom, we are able to conveniently take children to the bathroom. We begin to expect that children will wear underwear in the three year old classroom. However, we partner with parents to continue the practices of potty training that have been established at home. We never reprimand a child for lapses in toilet training.
