THE BEST IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
Strong Foundations Academy
At Strong Foundations Academy, our mission is to provide our young learners with the foundation skills they will use throughout their educational career. Our balanced curriculum teaches children the academic skills necessary to be successful in school and also the emotional skills necessary to succeed in life.
The curriculum at Strong Foundations Academy has been created with our children’s needs in mind: to mature and develop in a safe yet stimulating environment.
We increase literacy for our students by using The Spalding Method to develop skilled readers, critical listeners, and accomplished writers and spellers.
We also implement daily small-group reading instruction with a state certified reading specialist.
To ensure academic excellence, our accelerated math curriculum has been custom designed for Strong Foundations Academy.
STEM learning encourages innovation, critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and creativity, resulting in a capable, multi-faceted child. Through STEM, children build the skills necessary to navigate the world around them. Making connections between diverse skills and concepts is the way children learn best.
Early language instruction is one of the best ways for children to become bilingual – a privilege that has shown to have life-long benefits. At Strong Foundations Academy we take advantage of the critical time in early development when acquiring language skills comes naturally and easily.
When children feel safe and connected, they are ready to learn. Children aren’t born knowing how to regulate their emotions any more than they are born knowing how to tie their shoes.
Regulation is a skill, so we teach it!
The benefits of child-centered, imaginative play are endless. As Mr. Rogers said, “Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning.”
When creating an arts and crafts project, children are able to develop their fine motor skills. Art also allows for your child to expand their essential vocabulary. The skills developed in art carry over into a multitude of other activities and will be especially important in giving your child a head start in school.
The core of Strong Foundations is the belief in hiring educators with extensive classroom experience.
Our teachers are state certified. To ensure your child receives the best reading foundation instruction, your child will receive daily small-group reading instruction.
"I cannot recommend this school enough! The school, curriculum, and teachers are excellent. Everyone is so caring and because of the small class sizes, each student gets so much individual attention.
This school has provided a great balance for my daughter to grow academically and socially. Sending our daughter to Strong Foundations was the best decision and we are thankful to be part of their community."
