LHS Child Development & Teaching Laboratory- Early Bird Learning Center Interest List

The educational laboratory is able to provide care for no more than 18-20 pre-kindergarteners. Each family must complete an enrollment application packet and pay the enrollment fee for each child.

Enrollment Requirements
Children must be at least three years old by August 1st and reside within the Liberty School District and/or be the biological or legally adopted child of a Liberty School District employee. Child must be suited to be cared for, interacted with and taught by high school students and independently potty-trained (without assistance, and/or guidance, the child recognizes the need to eliminate- when awake and/or asleep, appropriately does so, and is able to change his or her clothes, if or when necessary). Participants with medical needs may not be accepted if any health care is (or could be) required as part of the participant’s day in the program. Providing care or health services for participants with medical needs is not part of the curriculum of this class and providing such care and services would fundamentally alter the nature of this program.

Enrollment Makeup
During the enrollment period, or when an opening becomes available, we will look at the existing class makeup and fill the opening(s) in a way that allows for a range of ages and a balance of boys and girls. At times we also strive to maximize diversity in terms of family income and/or structure, and race and ethnicity. We use this enrollment system to ensure that the center is representative of the community at large, and that our students are exposed to a variety of children and families.

Occasionally, a space will open up during the middle of a semester when a family leaves the program. We highly encourage you to apply for enrollment. When a child’s application is accepted, the staff will use the following procedures to contact a family about the opening:
• We will email the parent(s)/guardian(s) using the e-mail addresses given on the application forms.

    What is The Early Bird Learning Center?

    Child-centered learning program and development laboratory located within Liberty High School. Provides individualized and academically challenging curriculum and technology, character, health, music, art, and physical education. The certified, experienced, high-quality learning facilitators at the Early Bird Learning Center encourage creativity, communication, problem solving, collaboration, innovation, and critical thinking skills in a fun and loving learning environment. The facilitators work to instill a feeling of self-worth and self-confidence in each student while also requiring that he or she recognize the needs of others. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal with a balance between freedom and discipline. The utilized curriculum is standards-aligned and designed to offer student’s rich, varied experiences with language and math. Facilitators use a thematic approach to learning which gives students an understanding of the relationship between disciplines. Scientific and artistic exploration as well as physical activity are important parts of the program. Through outdoor play, science experiments/projects, and field trips, the children discover the wonders of the world around them. Students visit the wider community on field trips and for learning projects. The SMART interactive whiteboard, computers and tablets are used to enhance the teaching and learning of many subjects.
