About The Learning Place Preschool

Catherine Freeland is the owner/operator of The Learning Place Preschools in Boynton Beach, Florida. Catherina graduated with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Florida Atlantic University, in Boca Raton, Florida. After graduating she worked as an elementary school teacher and currently has over 30 years of experience working with children. While she was working she saw that many of her students were struggling in school. She wanted to offer a program to families of the community to help children get a head start in their education. This is when her idea of opening a preschool became her passion.

The Learning Place Preschool opened its doors to families of Boynton Beach, Florida is 2001.  After much success, the sister school opened in 2010, also in Boynton Beach, Florida.

Both schools offer preschool classrooms from one year olds to four year olds.  Free part time VPK (voluntary pre-kindergarten) is offered along with full time VPK programs. Afterschool programs are available for children up to fifth grade.  Summer and holiday camp is also offered for our school age children. 

The Learning Place Preschool strives to positively impact children to have the love of learning.

Our myKidzday Phone App.

We currently have a free phone app “myKidzday” available for all our parents to use. Parents can also email the school directly through this app. We find this is a wonderful way to communicate with our families regarding many things I.E. diapers, parties, supplies needed, etc.

Teachers  will also send home a monthly newsletter, and the office will also post notices on the white board located in the front office.
