||Our Facility: Founded in 1969, Wee Lad and Lassie Early Learning
Center is a small private facility located on a beautiful wooded acre
in Arnold, Maryland.
Our Program: In 1987, Wee Lad and Lassie joined the very few
private preschool and kindergarten programs to receive the Maryland
State Department of Education non-public school approval. In
addition, in 2005, we earned MSDE Early Childhood Accreditation.
This means our management, staff and curricula meet the highest
standards in Maryland. Currently we are one of only two MSDE
Accredited programs in Arnold. Our curricula are broad based,
covering Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science.
Also included are music and technology instruction, fine art, physical
education, and Spanish. We promote the development of the whole
child by fostering physical, social, emotional and cognitive growth.
We believe that a developmentally appropriate approach to learning
and individual attention are the keys to a high quality early childhood
Our Staff: Our teachers and staff members are enthusiastic about
children and teaching! The interaction between children and adults is
positive, warm, and nurturing with lots of attention to each child's
needs. All teachers have a Bachelors Degree and several have
completed Graduate Programs. We find that our teachers are happy
here, with many of our staff remaining for a number of years to build
a learning community.
Please feel free to call with questions you may have or to schedule a
visit. We encourage parents and students to visit our facility to
observe classes in session and meet our staff; that is the best way to
evaluate a program!
Our sister school, A Child's Garden, offers preschool classes and
extended care for your younger children (18 months to 3 years old).
