We are approaching another fun filled summer at The Learning Ladder! One of our absolute favorite things to do at the Learning Ladder is combining learning with fun, and the summer months are a prime time to do just that.

Your child will love our selection of summer adventures and activities, in addition to their regularly scheduled curriculum.

From mid-June through the start of the new school year, we provide a multitude of in-house field trips! From clowns to ice cream trucks and puppet shows to community helpers and the bubble man!

On days without visitors, your child is invited to participate in activities such as dress-up days, water games, cooking, picnics, music, and, every once in a while, a cold treat on a hot day.

Our summer camp is sprinkled with activities filled with fun! We spend most of our time outside with water play, sprinklers, picnic lunches and so much more! We have bi- weekly themes that go alongside fun outdoor activities!

Curiosity Cottage

251 Stockbridge Rd., Scituate, MA

Starting at $20/hr

What you will find at Curiosity Cottage is a learning environment that honors young children's developmental needs to explore, discover, and demonstrate their own areas of interest. Learners aged 3-5 here enjoy the benefits of learning in a small class with a teacher-to-student ratio of 1:4, using a curriculum that draws on the philosophies of Reggio Emilia and Montessori as well as the individual interests of our young learners.

Through art, music, dramatic play, outdoor activity, and early math and language activities that emphasize storytelling and vocabulary development, children at Curiosity Cottage become active participants and collaborators in their own learning. On any given day at Curiosity Cottage, you may see children engaging in hands-on discovery activities involving our nearby ocean and beach environment, studying the impact of the seasons on animals and plants, building strong muscles and body awareness on both indoor and outdoor play equipment, or taking a break to enjoy a snack of healthy fruits and vegetables together (provided each day and included in tuition).

At Curiosity Cottage, we believe in co-creating the curriculum with children based on our careful observations of children at play, in order to ensure that their very first contact with "school" is joyful and empowering and that they grow to love learning. We also pride ourselves on providing flexibility and compassion for adults, customizing your child's schedule to meet the needs of your family.
And, of course, in light of the recent pandemic, we also want to assure you that your child's safety is of paramount importance. Please continue learn more through my website located at the top of the page.
