Our Values

We seek to achieve our mission and vision through these priority values:

  • Inclusion: We continually strive for a fully inclusive, accepting, and welcoming school and work environment through student enrollment and talent hiring principles and practices.
  • Equity: We use the same evidence-based curriculum for all children while incorporating differentiated teaching strategies to meet the needs of each individual child.
  • Innovation: We continually research and implement today’s best practices in education delivery methods in conjunction with creating diverse business and community partnerships.
  • Advocacy: We work tirelessly to create a world where access to high-quality early childhood education is available to all children and families, with a community of resources to support their educational and personal journey beyond school.
  • Dignity: We treat every child and person we encounter with compassion, respect and humanity; every individual has value.

Who We Are & What We Do

We are a 5-Star, licensed Developmental Day Center, accredited with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Only 7% of all child care centers achieve this goal.

We provide an inclusive center-based program for children from 18 months to five years of age with or without delays or disabilities. The center is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Our teacher to child ratio is 1:6, with the exception of our toddler classroom which is 1:5.

We focus on the individual success of each child: in their academics, in their social development, and in their growth as future members of our community. Our services include special education instruction, speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy.

A large and growing body of research suggests that the U.S. educational system is one of the most unequal in the industrialized world, and students routinely receive dramatically different learning opportunities based on their abilities and identities.

Learning Together exists to ensure equity and equality in early childhood education for every child.

What Our Families are Saying

“Oliver was diagnosed with moderate to severe developmental delays at 18 months.  He had a severe language delay and had a hard time communicating. Within weeks of working with Learning Together, Oliver started picking up sign language at a rate of one sign a week at a minimum.  They were an invaluable resource for me about autism and how it pertained to Oliver. I cannot help but think that Learning Together has played a huge role in his success.”

~ Salee, Mother of Oliver

“My daughter, Megan, had Hurlers Syndrome. Megan made a tremendous amount of progress physically because of the Developmental Therapy we received from Learning Together. Her therapist went above and beyond what is required and provided not only Megan with care, but also us as a family. We miss Megan but are grateful for the achievements she made while here with us. Learning Together really did make a difference in our lives and in Megan’s.”

~ Tammy & Cheryl, Mother & Grandmother of Megan

“When my husband and I were fostering our now adopted son, we were having problems with him acting out. We had no idea what to do or where to go for help. After enrolling him in Learning Together, we were put in touch with their Child Mental Health Initiative and things started getting better. Licensed social workers worked with us as a family by showing us how to identify his trigger points and how to avoid them or help us to work through them. They worked with our son, one on one, by showing him how to use his words, instead of striking out in anger, among other techniques. The Child Mental Health Initiative at Learning Together has been a Godsend to my family.”

~ Kelly & Dana, Parents of Josiah

“Over the past 2 years, Elijah has blossomed! He has become very sociable, has better self-control, and exhibits less inappropriate behaviors. His progress is amazing!”

~ Sarah, Mother of Elijah

“Since beginning developmental therapy, my 2-year-old daughter has made so many advances and reached many important milestones! She has gone from being an inexpressive child who tantrumed and withdrew during social settings to a child that likes to make new friends and explore new challenges! We are so proud of her and so thankful she has such a great therapist! Thank you, Learning Together!”

~ Sabrina & Spencer, Parents of Elena
