Where play and creative expression
are encouraged on a daily basis
Miss Kelly's Academy focuses on the whole child and helps them achieve goals through individual encouragement, self-motivators, social and emotional competence, and positive reinforcement. We don’t lock our view on the children or their learning process as the world and its people are always changing. We believe that children have an enormous potential and curiousity, and we encourage their self theories and explanations.
We believe communication between families and our school is an imperative part of building relationships with the children. Miss Kelly's Academy will send an email each day your child is in class to give you an overview of your child's day, expanding your conversation with them about their day at school. You will also receive a monthly newsletter, via e-mail and hard copy about the outcomes of our previous month as well as our plans for the upcoming month or theme. If e-mail is not an option for your family we will gladly accommodate a better way for communication.
Miss Kelly’s Academy is dedicated to providing children with an exploratory learning environment
that enriches their experience through a reggio inspired philosophy. Within this philosophy, we create a theme-based preschool around the children’s interest. Children’s choices and interest are part of our curriculum, and lead us onto our next theme. We believe that all children learn through play and experience, and give all children the opportunities they need to feel successful and confident in a school setting at an early age.
We provide a learning approach that engages children in their play. Our school focuses on themes aimed at the children's interest while connecting their learning abilities to our unique and developmentally appropriate learning centers. Reggio Emilia teaches us that children “have a hundred languages”. Because of this, our academy tries to unite and develop these languages; innovation, fantasy, art, singing, music, dance, independence, science, construction, creative expression, the natural world, communication….These languages are used to help children build knowledge and understand the world around them.
