Making A Difference

Academy for Kids strongly believes that a smaller class size giving the teacher the time to work with the children individually allowing them to express their creativity.  Children will work on activities such as water play, finger painting, and shaving cream art. All our teachers keep a folder for each child in the classroom that contains all their art and class work so that parents can take home the work their children have done during the week.

 

All our teachers want to ensure that the children attending our preschool program are challenged intellectually and prepared emotionally. Academy For Kids takes pride in the quality education we provide our students and our goal is to always kindle their minds widen their horizons and awaken their creativity.
