Learning Together uses The Creative Curriculum® which is research-based and supports the development of the whole child. High-quality, comprehensive resources empower our teachers to intentionally teach and care for our youngest learners during the most critical and formative years of development. It is designed to encourage growth in all areas of development for children with and without developmental delays. Areas include social/emotional skills, fine motor, early learning, self-help, gross motor, science, technology, math, and communication.
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
Teaching Strategies GOLD
Teaching Strategies GOLD is an online program that allows teachers to effectively track the progress of children over the course of the year. This allows us to follow children over several years to assess their progress and adjust teaching goals to meet their specific needs. Teaching Strategies GOLD® is inclusive of children with disabilities, children who are English-language learners and children who demonstrate competencies beyond typical developmental expectations.
Social & Emotional Development
Learning Together is unique in its focus on social/emotional development. We have pioneered a teaching program that focuses on helping and working with children with behavioral challenges. Our children are screened for social/emotional development and receive the supports needed by both the child and family. Additional steps are taken to ensure that behavioral expectations, social emotional skills, and individualized behavior support plans are supported in culturally responsive ways. First and foremost, Learning Together ensures that behavioral expectations are congruent with the cultural values and expectations of the children and families who attend the early childhood program.
Learning Together adopted the Conscious Discipline methodology in 2021 to further support student’s Social-Emotional Learning (SEL). Conscious Discipline encompasses these four components, which are scientifically and practically designed for success:
- Conscious Discipline Brain State Model: Understanding how internal emotional states dictate our behavior.
- Seven Powers for Conscious Adults: Shift perceptions to see discipline encounters as opportunities to teach new skills.
- Creating the School Family: Building connections by creating a culture of compassion.
- Seven Skills of Discipline: Problem-solving with social-emotional learning.
