Our Center Philosophy

The PROGRAMS at Little People’s Academy Day Care Center  are structured from a base of POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT.

We strongly believe in developing the self-worth of each child by acknowledging every effort. We will prepare your child to excel and love the process of learning. We believe that it is never too early to begin to learn. The moment a child realizes he is able to use what has been taught, the world opens to him and his opportunities are endless.

The management and teachers at Little People’s Academy Day Care Center acknowledge the importance of their roles in the lives of the children that attend our facility. Good social skills and generally acceptable behaviors are taught and reinforced each day. We practice the concept of self-discipline – the child knows what is expected of him, and understands the consequences of his actions. The teachers we HIRE have a special interest in children. Although we are unable to replace the love and attention of a parent, we strive to create a loving, friendly, and fun atmosphere that your child can count on. We believe in the uniqueness and value of each child, parent, and staff member. We encourage children to develop relationships with their peers and teachers, to respect others, and to be kind and considerate. Children learn from each other. We observe this sharing of ideas and channel it into positive thoughts and actions. When this interaction between your child and their teacher takes place on a consistent basis, a special bond will form.

We have an open door policy that allows parents’ access to their child and to staff and management. We encourage parents to visit and PARTICIPATE in their child’s special activities, such as field trips and VIP week; however, prolonged and frequent visits are disruptive to the children and staff. We reserve the right to limit the amount and duration of visits at any time. Your interest in your child’s academic and social experiences at Little People’s Academy can be a great motivator for learning. Let your child see that you are working together with us to help make their time at Little People’s Academy a good experience in every way.
