Building the Foundation
A Perfect Fit

Full Time Program
Welcome to the Academy’s Infant Program. We help your infant thrive and grow by accommodating your child’s every need. The Academy provides “developmental care” extending ourselves well beyond necessities (feeding, changing, and keeping your baby safe from harm). We cater to your child’s need to be held and talked to, making sure that there are ample activities to look at and listen to, thus allowing your infant to gain his/her first sense of independence. Infants at The Academy have abundant opportunities to sample a variety of sensory and motor experiences, thus promoting their emotional and mental development. Your child will be cared for by our affectionate, professional team. We gently guide your baby, helping him/her to explore the environment through their senses, also by providing nuturing experiences for social interaction. These positive interactions with caring, loving adults allow your infant to develop a sense of emotional security, a necessary building block in your baby’s development.

At The Academy we have teachers to guide your toddler and help them understand his/her own feelings. The Academy understands that your toddler is very active and becoming more independent. Our curriculum allows for repetition to master new skills and build self-confidence. Your toddler will be introduced to educational concepts using a fun and interesting approach. We believe that the use of small groups for instruction increases the amount of individualized attention your child may need to attain or master a concept.
As our day begins, your child will begin “morning rotations”. The areas of instruction will include: Sensory/Art, Mathematics, Language Arts,and Science. This team teaching approach is a great way to keep your child interested in learning. The activities will be approximately 15 minutes in duration prior to moving to the next subject area. This time frame is ideal for a child ages 2 to 3 years. Our children stay on task for the activity and retain more about the lesson. These short instructional periods have generated a greater comprehension among our children. Your child will then have lunch, recess and social time to interact and play with friends. After snack, we begin “afternoon rotations”. Much like the morning, your child will rotate with his/her learning group through our areas of instruction. These areas of study include: Social Studies, Music and Movement, Library or Dramatic Play.
Our Older Toddler class is the only class at The Academy that has use of both, a specially surfaced toddler play area, as well as, a large secure play area with climbers and slides. Your child will experience both play areas daily.

The KinderAcademy program offers a unique learning experience for children ages 3-5 years. We have designed our program so that every child will receive the maximum individual instruction each day. Your child will be under constant supervision of certified education teachers.
Here's how it works. Your child, based on age and learning level will be assigned a homeroom; Freshman/Sophomore or Junior/Senior. These assignments will be primarily in use during our common activities throughout the day, for example, pick up/drop off, lunch, rest time, circle time and snack. As our day begins, your child will be part of one of four instructional small groups (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior). These groups will not have more than 10 children in each, thus providing your child with more individualized instruction and greater success.
The day begins with Morning Rotations consisting of Language arts, Science, Social Studies and Culinary Kids. These activities are approximately 15 minutes in duration. We utilize brief educational periods to keep your child interested in learning. This time frame is ideal for children ages 3-5 years. We then use our beautiful fenced in playarea for some gross motor play and socialization. After a lunch period and rest time, the afternoon begins. The rotations work just like the morning, however, this time around your child will work on Pre-Reading, Math, and Secondary Language.
This well-rounded curriculum more than prepares your child to enter either a public or private Kindergarten program with confidence and success.
