About the Provider

Description: The Academy for Children is fully accredited by the National Association for the Education for Young Children – NAEYC (www.naeyc.org) and is a dual-language early childhood education program. Many children – perhaps even your own – are from homes where Spanish is the primary language. This can create challenges for them later when in school. The Academy embraces both languages, helping your child maintain his/her native language, while also preparing him/her for the English learning environment present in Kindergarten.

Additional Information: ADA Accessible Indoor , ADA Accessible Outdoor , Air Conditioning , Fenced Yard , Small Group of 6 or fewer children , Smoke Free ; Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood; Child Care Center Experience ;

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Love my child going to this school! My daughter enjoys the atmosphere. The teachers are super nice to them and communicate well with the parents. She knows her colors and most of her shapes. And Every week my she comes home knowing two songs in either English or Spanish. I believe I made the first right educational decision for my child's future. She is currently she will just be turning 3 this month.
