The Learning

Loft Preschool

Our Philosophy

Our use of the Reggio Emilia inspired  approach is an evolving comprehensive philosophy based  on several guiding principles:


•Children are important collaborators and communicators
•Teachers are vital partners, nurturers, guides, and researchers
•A strong learning community:
    -Both children and adults engage in long-term, in-depth studies with opportunities to explore ideas through a variety of materials,    timelines, and interests
    -A deep sense of belonging for the children, their families and the staff
    -A beautiful and functional learning environment that is seen and  used as the “third teacher”

The Kid Time Difference                                                                                   The Learning Loft Preschool is housed inside, and operated by, Kid Time Children’s Museum, the second largest children’s museum in Oregon! The set-up allows a symbiotic relationship to flourish between the two entities.  

Kid Time is a magical space where children learn about the world around them through imagination and play.  The museum’s exhibits and programs combine learning, creativity, family interaction, and community to build a foundation for future success.

Separately, The Learning Loft and Kid Time are wonderful resources.  Together, they are exponentially better, allowing Learning Loft students to engage in museum programs and take advantage of museum exhibits, all at no extra cost!  That’s because tuition to The Learning Loft includes a school year membership to the museum!
