Each day, with the support of people like YOU, The Learning Lamp makes a difference in the lives of children.


Contributions to The Learning Lamp level the academic playing field by making high-quality tutoring, preschool, child care, and before and after school programs accessible to all children, regardless of income.

Quality Early Learning Programs

Meet Avery. This adorable little girl loves her older sisters, playing with baby dolls, and learning with her friends at The Learning Lamp Preschool in Connellsville. Avery is one of eight siblings in a blended family where both parents are in the workforce. As you can imagine, juggling full-time work and a family of this size is challenging. But Avery’s family is committed to providing her with the best possible start in life. They chose The Learning Lamp for Avery’s first school experience because they liked the child care program and staff. What they didn’t know is that they’d also end up with a partner in raising their daughter.

Did you know that 90% of a child’s brain development happens before the age of 5? When children like Avery have caring teachers and quality early learning experiences, they build the foundation for success in school and life. But for Avery’s mom Julie, it’s about more than early reading and math skills. At The Learning Lamp, her daughter is building healthy social and emotional skills, reaching developmental milestones with confidence, and building early friendships that will help her make the transition to kindergarten.

Doesn’t every child deserve the same chance as Avery? Please consider a gift to The Learning Lamp. When you invest in The Learning Lamp, you ensure families of little learners in our community have access to quality early learning experiences that set them on a path to success.

  • @thelearninglamp:The Employee Spotlight this week features Heidi Buchan, our Fingerprint Specialist and Prevention Assistant at The Learning Lamp. Heidi has called our main office home for fingerprinting services for over three years now. Her office sees the most activity of any at TLL and is the source of thousands of new faces every year. It’s a common occurrence for someone to visit for a fingerprinting appointment then end up being reunited with an old friend who works in the main office. “I really enjoy working in a friendly environment with some pretty great co-workers,” says Buchan. “And I appreciate working for an organization that does so much for children in our area.” We’re also appreciative of Heidi and all the work she does for us. Thank you, Heidi!
