They are knowledgeable teachers who love working with school age children and are here to comfort and support your child daily. Our teachers want to help your child learn and grow while having fun doing it. Knowing your child is the eldest of children in our center we want our school age children to feel very comfortable at The Academy.
We want to make homework a fun and an easy experience for your student. We provide time for homework and even help your child understand their homework.
Along with the structured classroom activities, your child will participate in our Enrichments programs - physical fitness, music, movement, art, drama and computers.
