Best Preschool Experience

Our Vision

We exist to provide the very best preschool experience that is possible for your child. We believe that your child is capable of great things and that these years are foundational for their sense of wonder and worth. Your child and your family are unique and we desire to connect with you at a personal level to better serve you.

Every child can learn

We want you as a parent to know that your child is growing in their whole person every day at our center. We are passionate about their academic, emotional, physical and social skills developing at appropriate age levels. We believe that every child is curious and capable of learning at any age. We can’t wait to see what your child discovers every day as they explore the world around them.

Qualified and licensed staff

Our center desires to be the very best at educating and caring for your greatest treasure, your child. All of our staff is qualified and licensed to ensure we meet the high expectations of excellence required to serve the families in our communities.

We want to thank you for considering us for partnering with your family in providing care for your child.

It is the goal of Acceleration Academy to provide each child with a well-rounded day

Academic Development

Phonics

The center uses the Zoo Phonics system. Each child has a development plan and the teacher supplements the curriculum with workbooks and early reading books.

Math

The Saxon Math Program is used in conjunction with other workbooks to supplement what each child needs for growth.

Homework

Children 2 to 3 years are encouraged to have their parents read to them nightly to help with their reading readiness and listening skills. Children 3½ years to Pre-K receive homework weekly to help instill a positive learning habit and help build their attention span. To promote self-confidence, the worksheets contain materials previously learned so that the children can demonstrate that knowledge to their parents. Though this work can be fun for them, it is not required and children should not be forced to do the work.

Social development

Children are encouraged to engage in group play both outside and inside. Each teacher assists children with their problem-solving skills, as appropriate.

Family/parent education

Workshops and conferences are scheduled throughout the year to help educate our parents on topics of interest to them. Plus we keep you informed through our monthly newsletter; please see our Parent’s Corner for the same.

Physical development

We take pride in our outside play areas and encourage children to climb, jump, run and ride bikes. In addition to free play, our teachers also include structured outside games and activities in order to help children develop large motor skills.

Emotional development

Teachers carefully observe the children and when necessary step in to assist the children if conflicts arise. Each child is taught how to use their words successfully and how to listen to others. We teach each child how to use their words, not their hands, when solving problems.

Imaginative and creative development

Creative learning centers are set up in each room, outside areas and in each classroom to help each child imagine, explore and create. Children are allowed to pretend and be creative throughout the day. Each day finds children playing house, in a workplace setting, being a firefighter, delivering mail, teaching school, etc.

Promoting independence

In order to promote a sense of self-confidence it is very important for children to learn that they are capable of doing things for themselves. Children are encouraged to help their parents bring in their belongings each day. During class, children are responsible for taking care of their classroom supplies, help open their lunches, take off/put on their sweaters or jackets and take care of their sleeping supplies.

Carefully designed schedule

Each class has a specific schedule to fit the specific needs of each age group. Every staff member carefully designs the schedule to ensure that children receive a well-rounded educational experience every day.
