We exist to provide the very best preschool experience that is possible for your child. We believe that your child is capable of great things and that these years are foundational for their sense of wonder and worth. Your child and your family are unique and we desire to connect with you at a personal level to better serve you.
We want you as a parent to know that your child is growing in their whole person everyday at our center. We are passionate about their academic, emotional, physical and social skills developing at age appropriate levels. We believe that every child is curious and capable of learning at any age. We can’t wait to see what your child discovers everyday as they explore the world around them.
Our center desires to be the very best at educating and caring for your greatest treasure, your child. All of our staff is qualified and licensed to ensure we meet the high expectations of excellence required to serve the families in our communities.
We want to thank you for considering us as a partner with your family in providing for your child.
It is the goal of Boost Up Kids Academy to provide each child with a well rounded day by including the following:
Phonics – The center uses the Zoo Phonics system. Each child has a development plan and the teacher supplements the curriculum with workbooks and early reading books.
Math – The Saxon Math Program is used in conjunction with other workbooks to supplement what each child needs for growth.
Homework – Children 2 to 3 years are encouraged to have their parents read to them nightly to help with their reading readiness and listening skills. Children 3½ years to Pre-K receive homework weekly to help instill a positive learning habit and help build their attention span. In order to promote self-confidence, the worksheets contain materials previously learned so that the children are able to demonstrate that knowledge to their parents. Though this work can be fun for them, it is not required and children should not be forced to do the work.
Children are encouraged to engage in group play both outside and inside. Each teacher assists children with their problem solving skills, as appropriate.
Workshops and conferences are scheduled throughout the year to help educate our parents on topics of interest to them. Plus we keep you informed through our monthly newsletter; please see our Parent’s Corner for the same.
We take pride in our outside play areas and encourage children to climb, jump, run and ride bikes. In addition to free play, our teachers also include structured outside games and activities in order to help children develop large motor skills.
Teachers carefully observe the children and when necessary step in to assist the children if conflicts arise. Each child is taught how to use their words successfully and how to listen to others. We teach each child how to use their words, not their hands, when solving problems.
Imaginative and Creative Development
Creative learning centers are set up in each room, outside areas and in each classroom to help each child imagine, explore and create. Children are allowed to pretend and be creative throughout the day. Each day finds children playing house, in a workplace setting, being a firefighter, delivering mail, teaching school, etc.
In order to promote a sense of self-confidence it is very important for children to learn that they are capable of doing things for themselves. Children are encouraged to help their parents bring in their belongings each day. During class, children are responsible for taking care of their classroom supplies, help open their lunches, take off/put on their sweaters or jackets and take care of their sleeping supplies.
Each class has a specific schedule to fit the specific needs of each age group. Every staff member carefully designs the schedule to ensure that children receive a well-rounded educational experience every day.
