WHAT WE DO
We have created The Linq, an out of the box innovation station where children are free and encouraged to explore and experiment at their own pace. With 30 years of experience in classrooms as teachers and administrators, we recognize the need to bridge the gap between past and future learning techniques. As education and technology continue to change and grow rapidly, our goal is to ensure children have the appropriate tools to face the future of tomorrow.
A safe and secure environment is vital to the success of our facility. Parents and children should enter The Learning Linq with the confidence that every possible measure has been taken to ensure their physical, mental and emotional well-being.
In order to keep our students safe throughout the day, safety protocols have been established. The door remains locked once the camp day begins. Parents are asked to come to the front door, ring the bell in order to be allowed in, where the students are signed in and out.
Security cameras are located at the front door, as well as other locations inside the facility. There are also monitors that are visual to all staff, to ensure the safety of all students, at all times.
