Welcome to Albatross Learning Centers
At our center, our mission is to provide awesome and affordable child care for the families of Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota and Bradenton.
Our center is licensed by the State of Florida Health Department and the Department of Children and Families. We also work with the Early Learning Coalitions of Manatee and Sarasota and we take School Readiness Scholarships from both counties.
We are committed to providing a program which embodies developmentally appropriate practices and principles which follow guidelines outlined by NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children). At our center, we provide a safe, predictable environment for each child so they may develop their social, emotional, cognitive and physical abilities.
We believe that the activities young children are engaged in should be appropriate for their age, and address their different stages of development. The teaching staff at our center know children learn best when they are involved in a balance of active and quiet play with caring adults who allow a child to grow and mature at his or her own pace.
Our staff are all professionals in the early childhood field. Our Head Teachers and Teachers all have appropriate credentials in early childhood education or a related field. In addition, all of our staff are required to participate in on-going training to keep abreast of current trends in child development and education.
