Letter from the Owner

September 29, 2014

Dear Families, I want to tell you an important story. As we earnestly pursue our accreditation from the State of Maryland, we are constantly encouraged to guarantee parents (some for two generations) that Little People’s Place will still follow our requested private school curriculum. My simple answer is absolutely unequivocally is YES. Our curriculum is based on the scientific research of Janet DiPietro from John’s Hopkins and joint studies done a Harvard University. These research scientists studied the MRI’s of two year olds and discovered that different disciplines such as art, music, movement, analysis, experimentation, etc. are always attributed to either the left or right side of the brain. Based on these findings, I wrote a curriculum that purposely uses art, music, movement and the 5 senses (right brain functions) to teach reading, writing, and mathematics (basically left brain functions). In doing so, both sides of the brain are developed and the children’s learning is optimal. The good news is our age old curriculum which is tried and true for almost 30 years now totally compliments the governments mandated curriculum, The InvestiGator Club! Feel free to check out this curriculum at www.investigatorclub.com. So be assured, we will continue to teach the curriculum for which Little People’s Place is so famous as we add our newest curriculum lessons, our smart boards, our science experiments, etc., etc., etc. And never fear we will always and forever remember the most important element of our daily schedule is to constantly love and cherish your…

Security Update

January 21, 2013

The owners of Little People’s Place have made a total commitment to the safety and security of our families in the new year. Our efforts include: the installation of additional security cameras that record activity 24/7 on a 30 day rotation; construction of “safe rooms” in which children can be sequestered in case of emergency; the addition of key pads like those on our entrance doors to interior hallway doors; replacing some doors with solid steel ones; barring windows where necessary; and installing “bull dog” security bars on recommended doors. Teachers will then be trained in conducting lock down drills in conjunction with our typical fire drills. We hope all schools, child care centers, and home care centers will follow these initiatives to guarantee the safety of our little people.

Little People’s Place changes February Open House Tradition

January 3, 2013

Little People’s Place Private Preschool will now be offering individual personal tours for our families of 2, 3, 4, and 5 year olds who may be interested in enrollment for our fall semester. Recent research indicates a one-on-one presentation caters to the individual needs of our parents and gives them a better feel for our wonderful school. We will then conduct an Open House for the children and their families in April. We believe spring will be a much happier time of year to share our classroom and play yard with the children because the weather is more stable and warmer. Call today for your personal tour 410-848-0834. The owners of Little People’s Place have made a total commitment to the safety and security of our families in the new year.
