Our Childcare & Preschool Education Philosophy

Children are eager to use their senses to explore the world around them as early as birth! At Preston, we capture that enthusiasm for exploration and learning by providing developmentally appropriate, child-initiated and teacher-directed activities in a safe, nurturing environment.

Preston Children’s Academy is a Nationally Accredited (NAEYC), Five-Star, licensed childcare facility that serves children 6 weeks to 5 years old. Our full-day preschool program is designed to meet the needs of each child enrolled. We strive to offer a nurturing environment to encourage the social, emotional, and cognitive growth of children within our program which include:

Program goals are accomplished by providing a balanced environment that includes both teacher-directed and independent learning experiences. We recognize that children learn in both formal and informal ways through active interactions and we maintain classrooms and playgrounds to support this growth.

What Sets Us Apart?
Our Qualified Early Childhood Educators & Low Teacher to Child Ratios

Our professional staff of teachers and assistants are experienced and educated in Early Childhood Development. The teacher’s role is to provide developmentally appropriate learning experiences that promote each child’s growth. Teachers use their knowledge of each child’s individual needs to plan thoughtful and engaging activities. Our turnover rate for instructors is one of the lowest in the area helping to ensure consistency and stability for your child.

Each classroom is led by a teacher with an Early Childhood Degree or equivalent with substantial coursework in Early Childhood Education. Staff members are encouraged and financially supported by the school to continue their college education. All teachers are CPR & First Aid Certified.

We are pleased to offer low teacher to child ratios in each classroom at competitive prices:
