PARTNER WITH US
We invite you to work with our teachers to help students get all they can out of their growing years.
THE STAFF AT Love and Sun Learning Center ARE UNITED IN THEIR BELIEF THAT ALL CHILDREN:
Have the power to learn
Are curious & creative
No two students have exactly the same skills or learning style. That’s why we create an individual learning plan for every child. Your plan will combine direct instruction, small-group work, and one-on-one tutoring in a way that works for your student in our small-class environment. Our maximum daily class size is 12 students and a minimum 12:2 student/teacher ratio is maintained during our instructional hours.
