About the Provider

Description: Achieving excellence as a result of Interactive, Hands-on, Accelerated Curriculum Based Learning. Whether we're furthering the educational experience of a 4-year old, cultivating a toddler's talents, or introducing an infant to art, it's not about what we put into children, but what we bring out of them! At Anderson Preparatory Academy, we believe every child has natural gifts and talents. Our Learning Directors nuture these gifts through hands-on, interactive learning, enabling children to learn at their own individual pace in a way they understand (with group and individual experiences).

Additional Information:

At Anderson Prep, we prepare homemade meals daily.  Interactive Healthy Meals System™ means we individualize a child's diet to include alternatives for allergies and accommodate diet preferences.  We have Vegetarian, Gluten-Free & Cultural diet alternatives, & Kosher approved snacks.  We provide Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables daily, use many organic foods, and do not add salt or sugar. We even puree our own organic baby foods.

We adopted a nursing home, where the 2.5-5 year olds perform songs for them.  We'll be occasionally visiting them and making cards/gifts for the residents.
 
Upon graduation, we hand out "scholarships" with their diplomas, meaning each child that attends APA more than 6 months receives monies to start or fund a college savings plan.  We have a financial advisor that will help you set it up.

One word = AMAZING! My child has learned so much, and is having fun at the same time! The huge playground is a major plus with grass and trees (which we don't really have where we live). My children and I feel like we're a part of a big loving family too. I am so fortunate to have found this gem right in our neighborhood!
