Seacoast Learning Center has benefited many children and their parents have been delighted with the results.

Children entering kindergarten in the Fall are taught by a learning specialist who utilizes a curriculum designed to teach kindergarten readiness skills. Each child is given the opportunity to strengthen the foundations needed to successfully enter school and manage kindergarten.

Our learning specialists understand how critical it is that the foundation of development and learning be well integrated and efficient before entering kindergarten.  They have an intimate understanding of each child's learning styles. Our team adapts the right curriculum to create the just right challenge.

More evolved reading, writing and spelling rely upon foundational attention, memory, listening, language, visual  and motor processing.  Our program  provides opportunity to  grow in these areas as well as those of social learning, academic learning, gross and fine motor skill development, verbal communication, imagination and creativity.

Our Kindergarten Readiness Program is designed for 4 and 5 year olds, with the individual child in mind, to best prepare each child to successfully enter school and  manage the job of kindergarten with confidence.


I met Mary Beth many years ago and knew right away she was the right person for my oldest

who was struggling in reading. By the time I had her tested she was reading at a preschool level at the end of first grade. Mary Beth had her up to grade level by the second grade and has kept her there ever since. When I noticed my twins struggling in preschool, I knew something was not right. At first, I changed schools to a more academic based program. This really magnified for me how far behind they already were. I had Mary Beth test them both and begin working with them. Within a few weeks their preschool teacher was amazed by the change. Her curriculum that links both pictures and sounds to letters was just what they needed. Starting them off as early as I did made reading so much less of a struggle for them. They are ending the first grade reading and confident! I can't explain in words how that compares to watching my oldest at this same point. There are many days when the children don't want to go to reading, but when I sit them down and ask who really understands them and gets how they learn best the answer is always the same...Mary Beth and her staff. I can't thank them enough.
