Infants have individual personalities. We help bring them to light.
Toddlers are extremely active. We keep them actively learning.
At two years old, children need to explore. We give them every opportunity.
At three years old, children discover and create. We encourage them to do it all.
At four years old, children are preparing for school. We get them ready to go.
Between ages 4 and 5, children are about to take on the world. We give them the tools to do it.
School-age children are curious about the world. We help them decipher it.
Each Academy is a little different. Here's what makes us unique:
