LCSD offers two child care/child development labs: Tiger Tots (six weeks to thirty-five months) and Tiny Tigers (three to five years old) at Taft 7-12 School, and Baby Cubs (six weeks to thirty-five months) and Cubby Preschool (three to five years old) at Newport High School. Classrooms are staffed by Teachers with extensive education, training and hands-on background in Early Childhood Education. Each classroom serves as a Teaching Lab for high school students who earn high school and college credit while they learn how to manage a classroom, plan age and skill appropriate activities for the children, and actively work with the children in individual and group settings while being mentored by the Lead Teachers.
Classes are open to community children for a fee. Please see the links below for more information about the program and how you can enroll.
