We prepare children for kindergarten with a focus on literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional skills. Through hands-on activities, interactive lessons, and collaborative projects, children enhance their critical thinking, communication, and fine motor skills. The nurturing environment promotes independence, creativity, and a sense of community, ensuring each child is ready for the next step in their educational journey.


The Academy Westminster Preschool program offers the developmental life skills necessary for your child to become a successful learner. Your child will be exposed to a social setting with an exploratory focus in areas such as language, math, science, sensory, dramatic play, blocks and manipulative play and art exploration.


Our toddler program is designed to nurture the curiosity and growth of children aged 1-3 years through a blend of structured learning and free play. The curriculum focuses on developing social skills, basic motor abilities, and early language acquisition in a safe and stimulating environment. Engaging activities, including storytime, music, art, and sensory play, are tailored to support the cognitive and emotional development of toddlers, fostering a love for learning from a young age.

Before and After-School

We offer before and after school programs for children ages 5 through 12. This program is offered throughout the year based around the needs of the child's school schedule and the school calendar.
