Welcome to The Learning Ladder

We are a high quality Jewish pre-school and child care center in Pikesville. At the Learning Ladder, we believe that each child is a special and unique individual. Our program provides learning and positive social interaction opportunities for all children through a quality, inclusive, and developmentally appropriate program, in a safe and supportive environment. Our program is designed to meet the needs of each and every child, and encourages them to grow and develop at their own pace and in their own way.

Our children are able to explore the world around them through a variety of hands-on experiences. They develop cognitive, social, emotional, and physical skills through encounters with make-believe, play, art, manipulative toys, block building, science, cooking, literature, music, and, of course, one another. In addition, our children develop an intense feeling of pride in their Jewish heritage, by observing and participating in Jewish customs, rituals, and holiday observances.

As early childhood professionals, our aim is to give each child the opportunity to learn, develop, and play to the fullest extent possible.



After many hours of training and preparation and reviewing the Maryland Recovery Plan in conjunction with MSDE and the CDC Guidelines the Learning Ladder has proudly opened our child care and preschool program.

As of July 6, 2020, the Learning Ladder is proudly back in business. We have altered our hours to 9:00 am to 5:00 pm daily. Each group of children stay in their self-contained classes with their own staff for the entire time. We have designated drop off and pick up times to limit contact with other people and keep proper distancing.

In cooperation with the parents, all children have their temperature taken by their parent and recorded by a staff member daily. Health questions are asked and when answered positively the children are greeted by their classroom teacher and escorted to their own classroom. All adults in the building wear masks all day long. The children have an option to wear a mask but do not need to wear the mask.
