Newport Learning Center
From the day they are born your child is learning and growing, from motor skills to
math and reading. As a parent, you want your children to have every opportunity and
to be prepared for what’s next in life.
At Newport Learning Center, we believe that early education is for every child and we
meet them at the stage they’re in. Your child will be encouraged to learn and grow in
our loving and faith-centered environment. Through age-appropriate Pre-School,
after-school, and summertime programs, we give children quality education and
provide parents with peace of mind until their kids reach middle school.
To give each child the tools they’ll need to succeed as they grow.
Our vision is that each child in Newport is provided with an education that meets them where they are and prepares them for the future.
Two or more Christian adults from Newport Assembly and other area churches teach each class. They undergo yearly training in child development and health and safety and view their job as a ministry as well as employment. There are substitutes that meet the same standards when it is necessary for regular staff to be absent.
Newport Learning Center uses Teaching Strategies’ Creative Curriculum ® for Preschoolto help teachers create a high-quality learning environment and build a thorough understanding of best practices. Daily Resources help teachers plan and manage every moment of their day. Through studies, which are hands-on, project-based investigations, The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool helps teachers build children’s confidence, creativity and critical thinking skills, and promote positive outcomes. The components of The Creative Curriculum® for Infants, Toddlers & Twos were designed specifically to provide in-depth support for the unique demands of each day in an infant, toddler, and twos program.
Teaching Strategies Gold is part of our curriculum that our teachers use to post their individualized observations about each child and the system assists them in building the needs and next step for each child.
