L & L's mission is to provide a confidential, caring, creative and compassionate environment where all individuals are empowered and taught how to recognize and optimize their full potential in order to become the leaders in our society.
Our center is a learner centered environment. As research tells us, students learn in a variety of different ways. Therefore, our teaching style caters to a variety of different learning styles. Our resources reflect this fact and have all been specially chosen to help address the individual needs of our students. A variety of educational games and multi-sensory resources can be found in the center in order to help each child reach their learning potential.
Literacy is an important aspect embedded into just about every element of learning. At L & L we take the development of literacy skills very seriously. We also understand that a child's literacy skills are more likely to improve if they enjoy and are interested in what they are reading. For this reason we have a wide variety of books that range from picture books to novels, both fiction and non-fiction.
Our resources are not only for our students. Our tutors have hundreds of professional resources to help them plan their lessons and address the difficulties that their students are encountering. This professional library also includes information that can be photocopied and shared with our parents on topics that pertain to their children.
