PEAR, Preschool Enrichment and Academic Readiness, is Aspen Learning’s early childhood education program. It is our belief that learning starts at an early age, and the best way to inspire a love for learning is through play and discovery. Our PEAR curriculum and activities are specifically designed to meet the developmental skills and goals of each child. Our goal at PEAR is to create an environment that fosters curiosity, exploration, and discovery while enhancing and mastering age-appropriate, developmental milestones through the following focus areas:


At Aspen Learning, we embody a “whole child” approach to learning, taking into account each child’s individual skill level, interests, and the varying stages of emotional, social and physical development. Every child who experiences Aspen Learning’s PEAR Program benefits from the individualized approach and attention that each of our specialized early childhood educators dedicates to each child. Our PEAR parents benefit from our skills-based, weekly extensions, included in our weekly updates, which provide applicable tools and strategies to continue the learning at home in a fun and engaging way.

At PEAR, our teachers aim to inspire your child through creative and engaging activities while focusing on age-appropriate growth and developmental milestones. Cultivating a love for learning, at any age, is part of our core belief, so at PEAR, we make learning fun. Let your child’s learning journey begin with us and together, let’s prepare them with the necessary skills to be happy and successful kids!

Aspen Learning's PEAR program offers one-on-one, group, and parent and child together (PACT) sessions for children 18 months to 5 years old.
