Timberline Learning Center is now open! We are operating with new policies and protocols set in place during the global pandemic while we strive to maintain a safe environment for our families and staff members. Please find more information attached below.
Timberline Learning Center has revised its policy in regard to COVID related quarantines as they impact student and staff members. Our goal is to continue supporting our staff and families in partnership with Public Health by adopting an updated protocol for adhering to quarantines. Timberline will use a 10 day quarantine period for classroom, staff, and other exposure quarantines while requiring a negative test result form a test performed between 5 to 7 days after exposure. Some circumstances may require a longer quarantine period where certain living situations make isolation at home impractical. Such circumstances will be identified by Summit County Public Health during the contact tracing procedures, and will be dictated by Public Health at that time. If an individual chooses not to take a test prior to return, a full 14 day quarantine will be required prior to return.

We are a school for young children from ages 6 weeks to 6 years. Our approach is Reggio Emilia inspired. The following principles guide our approach and curriculum: The child is an active, strong, competent collaborator in the evolution of their learning. The teacher is a guide, rather than an instructor, who observes, questions, researches, documents, reflects, and interprets. The classroom is a teacher unto itself! The relationships that develop between the children, their families, and the teachers create opportunity for growth, reflection, and support. Long-term projects are at the core of our program, using the children’s interests, and the teacher’s observations, as the guide.
