  • Academic Philosophy

    Making learning fun!
  • Kidz Academy has six classrooms, serving children from the ages of 6 weeks (Infants) to 12 Years (After School).

  • At Kidz Academy, we believe that children learn best through play and implement this philosophy through developmentally based curriculum focusing on science and sensory, math, literacy, writing, art, and fine and large motor skills.

    • Language and Literacy

      From Infants to PreK, teachers read multiple times a day to the children in their class. We believe that instilling a love of reading also instills a love of learning and leads to future academic and social success for children.

    • Writing

      The written word is everywhere in our world, and we encourage and facilitate children in learning how to hold a writing utensil correctly, tracing and writing letters, and writing their own names. From tracing letters in sand in Preschool to daily journal writing in After School, we never stop practicing appreciating and using the written word.

    • Social-Emotional

      We believe one of the most important skills children can learn at the preschool stage is how to handle big emotions and interact with peers. Not only does this education set them up for success when they eventually go on to elementary school, but also sets a foundation for how they will interact with others throughout their lives.

    • Art and Creative Expression

      Even as early as infancy, children have a natural creative side waiting to be expressed. Each classroom’s daily curriculum is designed to bring out the exceptional artist in every child, to let them express their unique personalities in different mediums, forms, and styles.

    • Math and Manipulatives

      Starting in our Toddler class we begin to introduce basic math concepts such as counting, shapes, and numbers. As children advance from class to class the level of skills introduced advances as well, with our Preschoolers learning about concepts such as less and more, and our PreK students working on basic addition and subtraction.

    • Science and Sensory

      At Kidz Academy we believe that science is all around us, from the air we breathe to the physics that make our toy cars go. Each class incorporates science experiments and sensory activities into their weekly activities, from exploding volcanoes to paint mixing sensory bags. We believe that hands-on learning is the best learning!

    • Physical

      Every class at Kidz Academy from Toddlers up to After School spends 30 minutes in the morning and the afternoon playing outside (weather permitting). We have two separate playgrounds—a smaller playground with a short play structure for our Toddlers and Two-Year-Olds and a larger playground with two play structures for Preschool on up. In addition, each class from Two’s to After School gets half an hour of dance class once a week at the dance studio in the parking lot adjacent to the school.

    • Diversity

      Kidz Academy prides itself on representing and teaching children about all people throughout the world, celebrating each race, culture, gender, ability, and religion. We believe that in order to understand ourselves, we first need to understand and appreciate everyone around us, and there is no age that is too young to begin learning this important life lesson.

  • Our goal is to create an environment where learning is fun!

    • Positive learning environment for your child
    • Delightful, friendly, and welcoming place
    • Individual attention in a small group setting
    • Teacher-led STEM activities
    • Opportunities for child-directed activities
    • Comprehensive daily reports for Infants to 2 Year Olds
    • Large outdoor play spaces for physical play
  • Reports on Individual Child’s Progress

    From our Daily Reports on our Infants, Toddler, and Two’s eating, sleeping, and diaper changing habits to our quarterly progress reports—our parents are always kept in the loop on what their children are doing on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.

    After School Homework Help

    Our experienced and trained After School teacher leads individualized homework time for children from Kindergarten to 12 years in a small group setting.

    Weekly Music Class

    Research shows that children each learn in different ways, with different abilities and strengths. One of the top three types of learning is Auditory, which is why we are so pleased that every Friday afternoon, Miss Mikela—a Music Education student at Pacific University—comes in for half an hour to lead music class in each of our classes from Toddlers to After School!

    Weekly Dance Class

    Physical movement is very important for young children, which is why we supplement our daily in-class and outdoor physical activities with a weekly dance class for our Two’s through After School classes. Our weekly, half-hour sessions take place at the Northwest Conservatory of Dance in the parking lot adjacent to our center.
