REGULAR PROGRAMS:

DESCRIPTION

We cater to children from 18 months to 6 years old. Our toddlers program is designed for children 18 Months to 3 years old. Our preschool program is meant for children 3 to 5 years old, while our kindergarten program addresses the needs of children age 5 to 6 years old.

Our programs are designed to enable a smooth and happy transition from home to school as your child steps out for the first time, and to prepare them for life in elementary school after they leave us. We help your child acquire basic self-help skills and learn social behavior.

All of our programs are based on the Montessori method and the believe that every child learns differently. Our teachers are trained to observe each child and create individual lesson plans based on the specific needs of that child. By encouraging exploration and experimentation, we develop your child’s gross and fine motor skills, language skills, cognitive skills and math and science skills. Your child will experience a wide-variety of activities related to art, music, drama and dance.

We offer full-day, half-day, before care and after care programs.

Specials at Peace N Joy Academy 2014-2015

Yoga (Thursday, during the school day)

Children will participate in a variety of activities to develop focus and listening skills, increase strength and balance, improve breath and body awareness and cope with the stresses of daily life. Children will work at their own pace and build confidence in their abilities and awareness of their potential. This class is ongoing and runs throughout the school year.

Spanish (Friday, during the school day)

Children will be introduced to basic vocabulary and concepts in a fun and imaginative approach. Learning Spanish is practical in making new connections with bilingual friends. Additionally, Spanish speakers can connect Latin roots to many of our English words, which help develop a more sophisticated vocabulary.
