Our Philosophy

Our educational philosophy at The Children's Academy encourages a learning environment that stimulates and nurtures children's growth and development. Our unique learning atmosphere incorporates a careful blend of Traditional and Montessori styles of learning through teacher directed activities and structured play. We believe each child should be provided with experiences that build self-esteem, which are essential in the adjusting, exploring, and growing stages of child development. This approach ensures each child's learning experience at The Children's Academy will be nurtured at the proper pace and level, and will provide them with the educational foundation for a bright future.

Our teaching philosophy at The Children's Academy offers a carefully balanced program of a full day of developmentally and age appropriate lessons and activities that your child will enjoy. We believe each child is unique and our teaching philosophy incorporates structured activities while remaining flexible enough to foster self-discovery that will help each child explore and learn at their own pace. Our teachers help each child be the best he or she can be.
