Toysday Tuesday–Building Toys!

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Each Tuesday I will feature my picks of favorite toys within a specific category. These are it for building and construction toys. This category of toys is great because, on the most basic level, kids love putting things together. When a child builds and constructs, they are building their cognitive skills, logic, creativity, and fine […]

Awesome Avery!

Meet Miss Avery, our student of the week! She is eight-years old and attends LMA. If Avery had her way, the family would have a pet dog—she’s a big animal lover.

Science is everywhere!

Monday, January 17th, 2011

As I give tours to potential families, I always talk about our curriculum and how we teach all the academic areas to our students.  When I mention that we teach science to our students, I tend to get some very strange looks, until I begin to explain how we teach science and why.  So let’s […]

Pumpkin Pickin’ Pre-Toddlers

The Perfect Toy

Friday, October 1st, 2010

This week’s announcement from Fisher-Price got me thinking about children’s toys, and what qualities “good” ones ought to have.  Outside of the obvious things (think: lead-free, no choking hazards, no sharp edges), picking out toys for children can be complicated.  When it all comes down to it, toys have two important components to them: -They […]
