At Smiles 4 Miles Learning Academy we believe that offering a variety of enrichment programs, in addition to our curriculum gives your child the opportunity to exercise different parts of their mind and ways of thinking that may not be used on a daily basis.
Some of the programs we offer daily are:
Our preschool program advances children’s skills in core academic areas to ensure school readiness. Our preschoolers follow a kindergarten readiness program which helps children advance skills in core pre-academic areas such as literacy, math, and science as well as in other essential areas such as art, social and emotional well-being, and health and wellness. Our child-centered approach ensures that children are exposed to a diverse array of learning activities and that they thrive in all areas of child development, creative thinking, complex problem solving, empathetic collaboration, curious investigation, and astute decision making. Our kindergarten prep curriculum prepares children for kindergarten and beyond, with the skills and confidence needed for a lifetime of academic success.
Our toddler program is designed to meet the special needs of children from the age of 12 months (and walking) to three years of age. Warm, nurturing teachers are especially important for children at this age. We encourage toddlers to interact with peers, develop language and cognitive skills, and improve self-help skills in a developmentally appropriate program. Our program uses hands-on exploration and social interaction in safe, engaging surroundings to help your child learn about his or her expanding world. Through the guidance of our early childhood development professionals, toddlers enjoy learning experiences that promote their blossoming independence and social skills, and foster self-confidence. Beyond day care, our curriculum for toddlers is designed to adapt to each individual child’s age and stage. Experienced teachers promote emotional, physical, social, and intellectual development in a fun, engaging environment.
A comprehensive Communication Plan keeps you informed about your child’s daily experience, curriculum, schedule, and key dates. Newsletters, calendars, parent-teacher conferences, and regular email and face-to-face communication with Smiles 4 Miles Learning Academy teachers and staff are some of the important ways we share information with our families.
Our goal is to develop a partnership with parents to provide the best possible programs. We believe that by working together, as partners in education, we can foster your child’s attitude toward learning.
Parents are welcome to observe and participate in the children’s classroom activities at any time.
Smiles 4 Miles Learning Academy believes that fueling your children with the right nutrients is a very key component to their academic development. We provide a wholesome breakfast and lunch along with a morning and afternoon snack at no additional cost. Menus are planned out months in advance and will be sent home with the child at the beginning of each month. Our meals are served family-style and help children learn social graces and exercise self-reliance.
