Our Jesuit ApproachAbout TLS
Our students benefit from small class sizes, welcoming spaces, learning assessments, social services, and an engaging experiential program.
TLS teachers use evidence-based best practices and know that children benefit from play and instruction, from both teacher-directed and child-directed activity.
Daily physical and interactive activities advance gross and fine motor coordination as well as cultivate social and emotional skills and spirituality. A nutritious breakfast, lunch, and snack are served each day.
Men & Women for Others
- Doctors from the Johns Hopkins Hospital and the University of Maryland Medical System lead workshops on child health and nutrition and answer parents’ questions.
- Clinicians from Loyola University Maryland’s Clinical Centers work directly with our students on common issues around speech, hearing, understanding, and using language to communicate.
- The Loyola University Maryland Psychology Department provides parent workshops on Positive Parenting and Speech and Language development.
- Our Reading Buddies program connects students with a reading mentor who attends St. Ignatius Loyola Academy.
- Student musicians from Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University and Towson State University play their instruments for our children.
- Volunteers of all ages support our students and families by sharing their skills and expertise. For example, Joanne Manzo, a certified nurse practitioner, conducts mindfulness workshops.
As a Jesuit school our focus is on “doing more” and emphasizing “the better.”
We do not just look at the child, we look at the whole family and provide educational opportunities, counseling, workshops, classes, and a Family Emergency Fund.
We offer year-round programming that gives our parents confidence that their children are in a safe environment all day, every day.
