About the Provider

Description: Bi-Lingual Russian-English fully licensed pre-school opened its doors
in September 2011. Enrollment is open for students from ages 2.5 to 6.
Full day schedule is from 7:30 to 6pm. Half day and partial week
enrollment is available. WizKids Academy pre-school continues to
emphasize high educational standards that we successfully
implemented at Wizards of the Minds Learning Center for the last 10
Our curriculum is structured to prepare children for school and geared
towards high academic achievement and creativity. We introduce
children early on to art, music and literature as well as basic academic
concepts such as math, phonics, science, history and geography.
WizKids Academy curriculum is enriched with chess lessons. Research shows that young children can be taught to think clearly through chess and that learning these skills early in
life can greatly benefit later intellectual development. Former U.S. Secretary of Education Terrell Bell in his book "Your
Child’s Intellect" encourages introduction to chess as a way to develop a preschooler’s intellect and academic
readiness. Enrichment lessons in Math, Chess, Fine Art and Russian offered at no extra cost for pre-K and
Kindergarten age students. Hot lunches, healthy breakfast and afternoon snacks are provided and included in
