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.
At five years old, 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:

I decided to work with children because its an amazing feeling to see children progress and learn the things that you are trying to teach them. Its so heart warming when you walk in a classroom and the children call your name and run to give you a hug. I have my 90 hour Pre-School Certification, 45 hour Infant/Toddler Certification and I am studying Early Childhood Education.
