|About||We encourage a positive approach to life-long learning in each child - in all areas of cognitive, physical, social and emotional development.|
It is our philosophy that children be encouraged to learn and grow by providing a foundation of developmentally appropriate experiences where all children can succeed in a safe and nurturing environment. We believe that each child is a unique individual and that all children can learn. Our preschool programs provide inclusive settings that recognize children’s varied abilities, interests, needs and learning styles.
We recognize that parents are the child’s first teachers. Children are more successful when parents are involved in their educations program. The primary bridge between home and school is the involvement of family and community.
We believe that children learn best through meaningful play. Our child centered program reflects the integration of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, language, self-help and aesthetic areas for the total development of the child. Meaningful play encourages curiosity, discovery and problem solving which allows individual growth and development of positive self-image.
The statement and beliefs in this philosophy reflect the position of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
The Academy is licensed for students age 2 ½ and up. Our program allows children grow and develop in a warm, friendly, and secure environment. We want to do whatever we can to ensure that children attending our center will find themselves exceptionally well prepared for future schooling.
