Our Curriculum

Thematic units are the frameworks for activities in our all-inclusive hands on themed room. This area of the classroom totally changes for each unit; including toys, activities and scenery. Our curriculum being developmentally appropriate is a combination of structured and unstructured activities that are geared to the child’s overall developmental level as well as to each child’s learning style, academic progress, temperament, talents and interests.Our classroom has been transformed into a:



  • Native American Village

  • Dinosaur Museum

  • Flight of the Monarchs

  • Cinderella Castle and Coach

  • Country Western Town

  • A Bug's Life

  • Outer Space Station

  • Winter Wonderland

  • Changes of Fall

  • Wonders of Spring


Our curriculum revolves around a letter of the week as well as our thematic units. Each week we provide experiences through either cooking, science experiments, dress up costume day or a special visitor that reinforces the name and sound of the letter. Loud Lady Lola from London could arrive on the locomotive with a live lobster, limp lettuce and lollipops in her luggage. She would then teach about the lobster followed with dancing the Limbo, all while “Mrs. Tudisco” had a doctor’s appointment, it’s funny how they are never together at the same time. We could be clowns for “C’, come in Pajamas for “P”, make French Fries with Mrs.Tudisco dressed as a giant box of French Fries for “F” or erupt mini volcanoes for “V”. The possibilities are endless! We believe that if you can engage the child’s imagination through utilizing all the senses than we have created a memory; that memory leads to life-long learning.

One of the highlights of the year is our annual “Disney” themed play performed at The Dunaway Center in Ogunquit. All the children enrolled at The Learning Place are in the production, either as a main character of a Mouseketeer. Everyone has fun singing and performing for friends and relatives. The pride in their eyes after performing is priceless, to hear them proudly say, “I did it”, will warm your hearts.
