Learning Loft Educational Programs
The St. Gabriel Learning Loft Preschool is a Christ-centered, comprehensive preschool that offers a loving experience to help transition your child into the world of education.
Our highly qualified teachers receive training to keep current with new concepts in the field of preschool education. This is then translated into the classroom setting so your child will be exposed to various ways to express creativity, methods of learning and play.
In our centers-based curriculum, students learn through active exploration and interaction in a hands-on environment.
We use the Ohio Department of Educations Early Learning and Development Standards. These include:
Fundations is a systematic researched based multi-sensory program that teaches the foundational skills for reading and spelling by emphasizing phonemic awareness. It is focused on student development by differentiating instruction and actively engaging students in their learning.

Spanish & Enrichment Programming
Optional Spanish is available for parents to register their children at an additional cost. This fun and interactive class is taught by Jecci Garcia Moncada Research shows that learning a second language at an early age can be very beneficial. The Spanish Program is offered to the 4 & 5 year old students. The class is taught half-hour once a week before or after the preschool class. During the class children learn Spanish through playing and singing. They also make crafts and practice writing skills with the Spanish alphabet.
The Learning Loft has added an Enrichment Program to extend your child’s regular class period and learning and social time! The Enrichment program will be held in the great room and will consist of a Music and Motion class, a Spanish class, a Movement class, Yoga class, and a STEM class. The classes will be offered from 11:15 – 12 pm. So whether you are in the morning class or in the afternoon class the program will work for you. You can choose to just do one class a week or several. The fun rotation of enrichment programs will allow your child to experience the wide variety we offer.
Each class for the entire year will be $100. So if you choose to register for two classes your additional cost would be $200 for the year.
