BREVARD COUNTY • MERRITT ISLAND, FLORIDA – Launch Learning Preschool has opened its doors for the first time to enthusiastic families to participate in an active learning environment for the whole family.
A legacy program of the Eastern Florida State College Lab School, Launch Learning commits to maintaining excellence in education as well as supporting families of young children in Brevard County, just as the Lab School had for over 55 years.
Launch Learning offers a unique approach to early childhood education through parent-involved educational programs for children ages six weeks to five years old, in addition to monthly parent education classes.
This dynamic program places emphasis on play-based learning, social and emotional development, parent education, and community involvement.
“Our team is honored to carry the torch of helping grow confident families here on the Space Coast,” said Launch Learning Executive Director Jonnah Buchanan.
“We have seen the Lab School mission fulfilled in so many families and are thrilled to be able to provide this asset to the next generation.”
On Saturday, February 25, Launch Learning will open its doors to the entire community from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. so families can experience all that Launch Learning has to offer.
The grand opening event will have free crafts, face painting, bouncy houses, kiddie carnival games, and guest appearances by characters from Paw Patrol.
Launch Learning Preschool is a nonprofit organization located in Merritt Island, south of 520 on Courtenay Parkway. It was established as a nonprofit to create an organizational model that welcomes community ownership and sustainability, bringing life to the community for generations to come.
Launch Learning plans to offer financial scholarships, VPK options, and low-cost parenting classes, as well as after-school care and enrichment programs.
Launch Learning’s unique programs set it apart from many traditional preschools with its emphasis on social-emotional learning, Parent Connect workshops, “Fun Trail” physical skills, a sensory-rich environment, nature-based creative play, S.T.E.M., and enrichment programs.
This innovative program fosters a love of learning through a balanced curriculum of purposeful play and guided education.
Its developmentally appropriate, play-based program offers a unique opportunity for parents, teachers, and children to work together, creating a connected school community that lays the foundation for joyful learning and academic success.
