The LaSalle Learning Center was established in 1984 by Brother John De Cruz, out of a need to offer an alternative methodology of learning for children who are unable to cope with the normal school system. These children are labeled as “underachievers, slow learner or failures” by the school system. One clear symptom of this complex problem is seen when they drop out of school at an early age.The Learning Centre objectives are to promote an environment and opportunities for the young to grow fully in total human development. At the learning center, there are different stations where a child learns to acquire both basic learning skills and enrichment skills.
Basic learning skills include:
1. Thinking & speaking.
2. Counting, calculating & problem solving.
3. Listening including remembering & recalling.
4. Reading & comprehension.
5. Writing including drawing & artistic expression.
6. Spelling & referencing.
7. Doing & making.
