Johnson Pond Learning Center is dedicated to guiding children to make good choices, develop high self-esteem, receive and show respect through words, actions and treatment of self, others and the environment, learn tolerance, and make positive contributions to the community. We prize each child as an individual.
Our curriculum focuses on learning through discovery and play. Theme based lessons are hands-on and provide children with the opportunity to make choices. Children are encouraged to participate in all class activities and learning centers. Through play in centers and outdoors, children develop social skills, fine and gross motor skills, and are guided toward appropriate conflict resolution practices. Basic skills are taught on an individual basis, as well as in a group setting. Math, science, social studies, handwriting, and pre-reading skills are integrated into daily lessons and routines. Learning is achieved through developmentally appropriate practices.
We expect children to experience individual successes, as well as to display an awareness of others and a sense of commitment toward the larger community. We expect children to display behaviors appropriate to a group setting. We expect children to develop a love of learning through self-directed and teacher-directed activities. We expect children to have fun, be nurtured, and become comfortable in their environment.
Our school atmosphere is informal, friendly, and fun. We are an extension of the family and strive to present ourselves as nurturers and good role models. Our teachers are educated in child development, are excited about education, and are continually growing and learning. We recognize and encourage their individual teaching styles, as we do each childs individual learning style. Our teachers show children a caring community by working together and respecting one another. They are deserving of respect from parents, children, school administrators, and the community.
Together, we (parents, teachers, and administrators) provide an atmosphere of love, acceptance, and fun. Together, we instill in your child a sense of self-esteem and an excitement toward learning. We look forward to beginning your childs journeytogether.

Johnson Pond Learning Center believes:that a quality early childhood education creates the foundation for future learning successes. that learning to communicate with peers within a structured environment, and on a social level, is necessary for young children. that respect for self, others, and the environment is something that is taught and earned. Learned at an early age, this provides children with the tools they need to be a contributing member of a larger community. that young children learn through experience and hands-on activities. that teachers at the preschool level should facilitate, not dictate. that children should be guided toward positive decisions and choices, and self-esteem should flourish. that children should be nurtured and made to feel special. They should be recognized as an individual, not only as part of a larger group. that our school is an extension of the home. Parents, teachers, and administrators must work together to create a warm, comfortable, academic environment for all children in attendance. that each lesson each day should benefit the childs social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth. that learning should be fun.
