The creative curriculum at NLCP has exceeded all of our expectations as a parent. Our oldest son started the program when he was 2 years old and is now in an accelerated first grade program at his current school.
I knew immediately that I was going to like the creative curriculum. I was a teacher at a Montessori school at the time he started and could see that there were a lot of similarities between the two programs so I was very drawn to it. The teachers are so creative in their ways of incorporating play and everyday activities into learning. There was never a day that my son said he didn’t want to go to school. He always loved it! I was amazed at how quickly he was learning his letters, numbers, among other things. By the age of 4 he started to read. When he went into Kindergarten at his current school, he was already reading at a first grade level. Not only academically, but his personal growth was visible. He wasn’t afraid to try new tasks and unconventional approaches to learning. I believe this all stemmed from the creative curriculum he experienced at NLCP.
Our youngest son also started at NLCP last year as a 2 year old. When he began, he wasn’t very talkative, didn’t know numbers, letters, or many colors. NLCP awakened his curious little mind and we are so pleased to hear him have conversations with everyone, proudly say his colors, numbers and letters. He does it with such confidence too!
I wouldn’t pick any other curriculum for my children. They are children after all, and play is so important. Many studies show that children learn by play, and need it in order to thrive and mature. I recommend this curriculum to any and every parent I meet!
