Programs

Envisioning • Developing • Celebrating

Early Learning Academies’ Centers offer various programs to positively create learning opportunities for all ages and stages of child development. Offering curriculum, learning objectives, goals, and milestones that align with designated state standards, we prepare students for their greatest success while celebrating childhood – sparking curiosity, inspiring them to try, and encouraging the talents within every child.

In terms of building community and facilitating socialization, ELAC moves children with their peers as they graduate to the next levels, thereby fostering long-term friendships and creating continuity. This growth continuum spans the following programs.


Infants

Discovery (6 weeks to 12 months)

We celebrate the uniqueness of every baby. To do so, we partner with you to understand your baby’s needs. We provided daily logs of feedings, changings, and updates to keep you informed on all the things—big and little—that are taking place every day for your precious little one.

Babies in the Discovery Classrooms will:

  • have individual schedules to meet their needs
  • take part in activities that encourage and develop fine- and gross motor skills

To help lift ease the workload for families, we’re partnering with the Cuties Care program to provide diapers and wipes for babies and toddlers while they attend our school. For $10 a week, Cuties Care covers the cost of diapers and wipes. We know parents have a million things to manage—we’re happy to cross diapers off the list.


Toddlers

Investigators (12 months to 3 years)

Your toddler is meant to explore, take apart, put together, and question practically everything. Children in our Investigators classrooms learn through developmentally appropriate play in an environment where they can thrive.

Toddlers in the Investigators Classroom will:

  • Exercise their natural curiosity while being exposed to hands-on activities
  • Be encouraged to interact with peers to start building social skills

Preschool

Explorers (3 years old to 4 years old)

Preschool-age children in the Explorers Classroom understand the idea of rules and they’re learning to play with their peers. Our Explorers Classroom curriculum help children delve into different topics through age-appropriate and engaging activities.

Preschoolers in the Explorers Classroom will:

  • Experience hands-on learning daily through a wide range of activities
  • Develop fine motor skills that will help with writing and practice gross motor skills outdoors to gain better control over larger muscles

PreK

Pathfinders (4 years old to 5 years old)

Children in the Pathfinders Classroom will be asked to complete more concrete tasks to ensure they’re prepared for the next step in their education. Our goal is to ensure your child has mastered all the necessary skills to enter Kindergarten by providing individual planning, challenging your child, and considering their progress.

Pre-K children in the Pathfinders Classroom will:

  • Strengthen math, science, writing, reading, arts, and physical skills through differentiation and small group activities
  • Work on mastering key Kindergarten-required skills

Kindergarten

Inspectors (5 years old)

We work closely with the education department and school district to ensure your Kindergartner is prepared for the next step in their education upon graduation. We work with each child individually, differentiating lessons and equipping young learners with the tools necessary to master the basics before flying up a level!

Kindergartners in the Inspectors Classroom will:

  • Complete activities designed to meet common core standards
  • Work on fundamental skills like letter sounds/blends, sight words, early readers, and more

School-Age

Voyagers (5 years old to 12 years old)

The Voyagers Classroom is designed to meet the unique of school-aged children. Most activities are child-led, which means students focus on their interests and move easily between activities. The children in this classroom get a balance of flexibility and structure—they have the time and space for schoolwork and fun with games, activities, and outside time.

School-age children in the Voyagers Classroom will:

  • Do homework in a quiet area and be provided help as needed
  • Enjoy learning stations for STEM, sensory explorations, and building challenges
  • Join in organized outdoor activities (kickball, soccer, tag-related games) plus reading and arts and crafts.
