Safe. Healthy. Loving.

Children learn best when they are secure and happy. At THE Children’s
Academy, we seek first to provide that security through a safe, healthy,
and loving environment. Our goal is to help each child find their own security so
they are best prepared to learn.

Preschool Learning Programs

Safe

Safety is our first priority for each child, family and faculty member, and guest. Children may only be released to individuals the parents/guardians have designated in writing. There are coded door locks between the public and our children and all playgrounds are fenced and secured. Exterior classroom doors are kept locked when children are not on the playground. We conduct fire and tornado drills monthly and intruder drills every 6 months. Children are never left unattended and role is taken at each transition during the day.

Healthy

Teaching children to guard their health begins with our infants. Handwashing is the best way to minimize the spread of germs. Infants’ and toddlers’ hands are washed before and after eating; after diapering, sneezing and coughing; and upon entering the classroom. Older children are taught to do the same by themselves. Teachers are careful to wash their hands regularly as well as following the ten-step diapering plan and throughout the day for best health. As the children grow, they are taught to care for themselves, such as to cover coughs and sneezes, wash hands at the appropriate times, and turn off the water with a paper towel. Exercise is important to good health and outside play is part of each day that the weather permits. Meals and snacks provided by the school meet the USDA food guidelines for each age group.

  Loving

Knowing that the adults in their lives love them is most important to a child. A child who feels loved can love others and learn the social skills needed for success. As we add team members, we seek first a heart for young children. Those who are gifted with that heart have the love and patience to help each child grow in their own special way. These loving teachers also stay longer, and we are proud that many of our faculty have been with us 5 or more years, several for 10 years, and we have two 25-year team members! We are so fortunate that these teachers chose us and that our children feel their love and can benefit and flourish in their circle.

  Kindergarten Readiness

Your child’s kindergarten readiness begins in the earliest years and builds each year to prekindergarten classes that prepare for success in public or private schools.

In our program, we are confident that your child will have an early education foundation that instills confidence, knowledge, and self-assurance, giving them the building blocks for success and a lifelong love of learning.

Each classroom provides space for growing, moving, social interaction, and individual and group activities.

The classrooms are large, attractive, and furnished with equipment and materials to enhance the physical, emotional, and educational learning fun each day!
