A Specialized Education Approach

The personalized attention and mentorship Little Lukes’ teachers provide to each child is attributed to the 14:1 teacher, student ratio. Every inclusion classroom setting at Little Lukes has one lead teacher, one certified Special education teacher and two teacher assistants to spend ample time with individual students. In addition, several speech therapists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists are available in the classroom for therapy sessions.
Jenny Gordon, Lead Teacher at Little Lukes Preschool and Childcare Center in Oswego, N.Y. notices that, “Being at Little Lukes really puts these kids ahead of the game. The inclusion program is helpful because it helps build self-confidence while teaching the children social skills to prepare them before they get into elementary.”
Staff training is essential to the success of your child. Each teacher must complete a minimum of 30 hours of training every two years in the areas of nutrition and health, safety and security, child abuse and maltreatment identification and prevention. This helps teachers focus on children’s overall strengths and areas of improvement. Learn more about our ongoing training for certified teachers.
