Kids Academy provides a specialized “Camp” setting for our school-age children. On days off, spring break, winter break, and summer break the children go on daily field trips. These adventures are fun-filled activities.
Camp can be a great learning opportunity for children, a place where children make lasting friendships and are introduced to lifelong hobbies like swimming, roller skating, tennis, and weaving.

Our primary goal is to offer a quality instructional and recreational program. Each day promises to be filled with fun and excitement.
SAFETY & SECURITY
The front entrance is secure with a keypad to access the building. Fingerprint recognizing system is used for check-in and out procedures.
We have an open door policy for parents.
Every classroom, hallway, playground, and front entrance is monitored by closed-circuit cameras.
Every staff member is trained in pediatric first aid and CPR.
Each classroom is set up with high-quality age-appropriate furniture, toys, and equipment that encourage the children to explore different interactive activities that built upon their early learning skills and needs.
The two playgrounds are constructed for different age groups;
Playground: Developmentally appropriate outside play areas consist of climbing columns, slides, bridge passing, lookout tower, and other active play areas.
These structures sit upon a soft cushioned rubber (2 to 5 inches thick). Around the main play area is a bike path, a basketball hoop, painting easel and shaded areas for quiet activities.
Toddler playground: For our infants and toddlers we have a special outdoor play area. This area caters to their gross motor developmental needs. Children are able to explore age-appropriate equipment that promotes the development of climbing, reaching, pulling, balancing, sliding and much more. Teachers also bring different materials, like fabrics, water table, and sand table to increase a variety of activities and serve to different interest levels.
Village area provides age-appropriate activities for rainy, hot or cold days for every age group with reading materials, play areas and toddler playground equipment.
WATER PLAY PARK
During our summer months, we extend our outside play with our fun water play park.
Twice a week, each classroom explores different types of squirting water, either water showers down from a coconut tree, sprays the children from two giant rings or shots from the ground. The children are able to connect and interact with each other while exploring the dynamics of water.
*Water shoes are required for safety.
KIDS ACADEMY PARK
Our park is created for young children to discover themselves and the world around them. Park was created for children that tickle their imagination and surprise their senses. Garden, bird bath, bird feeder, meditation rock garden, platform yoga, reading books, watching birds, making music, dancing to their own tune effects, offering an endless possibility for play and discovery.
Our butterfly garden is created by our parents. They planned, planted and then watched with us to see how it grows. Every year butterflies come to our garden to lay their eggs, the eggs hatch and become caterpillars, then they go through metamorphosis and finally beautiful butterflies come out. Children talk about the whole cycle or birth and wait excitedly until the next cycle comes.
At our garden children have the chance to follow their inborn curiosity by exploring and learning about nature. In their vegetable garden; they plant, water, weed and eat whatever grows from the soil. Tomatoes, peppers, carrots, eggplant, cilantro, celery was this year’s crop.
Art is a powerful communication, a way to express a vision that is beyond the capability of words and a medium for cultural enlightenment.
Computer center, smart interactive whiteboard, and tablets allow children for active learning and discovery. The Center will also help children to learn both short and simple lessons and more complex integral part of larger projects.
Weekly visits to the Computer Center will provide developmental skills for three, four and five-year-old children. These skills include improved intelligence, non-verbal skills, problem-solving and conceptual skills.
Interactive Smartboard is a hands-on technology tool which enables early childhood teachers to plan for playful and purposeful activities for children. This tool offers strategies that reflect the latest scientific research for pre-literacy and mathematics concept acquisition in young children. Children will have learning opportunities that are fun and engaging.
