EARLY LEARNING ACADEMY - A UNIQUE CONCEPT
Unlike Any Early Childhood Program Around!
…and we Guarantee it!
With the rise of technology and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) in our schools, it has become increasingly evident that students need to possess certain skills. At our Academy, we start the framework for developing critical thinking, problem-solving, and observational skills through science enriched activities.
science enriched Philosophy
A science-enriched philosophy encourages students to explore and investigate their world around them. Students learn how to identify cause and effect and carry out their own theories about the way things work. This is all done by seeing science in action with hands-on activities and experiments.
Hands-on Approach to Learning
We truly believe the best approach in early learning is with the hands-on approach. This approach allows our students to become active and engaged learners. Incorporated in our curriculum are many different aspects of science such as biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering.
We also have a wildly different science program that is unique to just us! Our Animal Sciences Early Learning Program was developed specifically with our students and our animals in mind. We have close to 300 animals and insects on-site for our students to observe, interact with, and learn about. Our approach will foster a love of science and an understanding of animals that will last a lifetime.
Enrichment through Arts
We provide a well-rounded program that will introduce your child to the Science of Art through music, art, and language.
Our Music teacher introduces students to different instruments and helps develop an appreciation of music.
Our Art teacher has a different spin on the science of art! In this program, she introduces students to famous artists and helps students explore the techniques used. Our annual Spring Art Show is an opportunity for families to see the year of art. It is always a fun time for all!
Our Spanish teacher with her love of this language makes learning Spanish easy. She allows students to explore and learn the language through songs, numbers, and understanding phrases.
Our Science of Art program also includes other enrichment opportunities like Yoga & Mindfulness. This will allow students to begin focusing on one’s awareness of the present moment, calmly accepting one’s feelings and thoughts, and self-regulation. This is an important stage of development for an early learner that sets the foundation for their social-emotional growth.
