Get Ready To Learn!
At The Academy, we understand choosing the right
preschool for your child is an important and exciting decision. You want to feel confident
you're choosing a preschool that focuses on learning, yet appreciates the importance of
fun. A place that encourages your child's development, but doesn't make him grow up too
fast. You want an environment where he can make friends and share the joy of learning with
other children. You want a true partner who keeps you actively involved. And, most
importantly, you want your child to be cared for by teachers who keep him safe, make sure
he's loved and nurture his individual personality and unique abilities. The Academy is such a preschool. For years now,
we've inspired the wonder of learning in young children and laid the foundation for
lifelong success in school.
You won't see our preschool teachers standing in front of the classroom telling
children the answers or helping them memorize letters and numbers. Instead, you'll see a
classroom where children are allowed to discover things independently, at their own pace
and in their own unique way. This helps your child become an enthusiastic learner who is
self-confident and inquisitive.

materials we select, the way our teachers interact with the children, even the arrangement
of our classrooms all encourage children to be creative thinkers, eager explorers and
