Academy Of Young Minds recognizes that our mission is to serve children,
staff, families, and communities. We have made a commitment to provide
positive, nurturing, and enriched
learning environments and experiences that foster cognitive, physical, social,
and emotional development in each child as an individual. It is our
philosophy that each child will attain
his/her potential if given the appropriate guidance and activities to promote
this development. Our center highly emphasizes a curriculum that includes
a full day of creative and constructive
learning. Along with art, computer lab, dance, and dramatic play, your child
is offered educational instruction in reading, math, science, language
arts, social studies, and
We provide opportunities to our staff that promote personal and professional growth and
development that further enhances their abilities and empowers them to bring necessary,
key experiences to the children’s daily environment. They attend periodic in-services on
pertinent issues such as Behavior Modification, Play Therapy, and Child Development.
In addition, staff members are trained in first aid, the recognition, prevention, and
management of communicable diseases and recognition of child abuse. All full time
teachers at our center are certified in early childhood development and/or degreed in
education. They understand the importance of following and communicating the progress
of your child’s growth. Therefore, weekly lesson plans are posted, daily reports are posted,
and parent teacher communication is encouraged for your child’s optimal development. You
may be secure in knowing that your child is in the care of a loving, knowledgeable and a
professional staff member who deeply values your child as an individual and who will contribute
positively to their overall development.
We provide assurances to families that their children benefit from the daily experiences we offer.
We recognize that the parents are the primary source of education in their child’s life. Through
this recognition, we strongly encourage participation and support from the parents. Parents are
welcome to visit their child or to participate with them in their classroom at any time during the day.
We further allow families to pursue careers and activities within our communities that contribute
to and enhance the healthy development of the family unit and the community as a whole. We
are committed to developing quality standards and establishing a strong presence through growth
and awareness that effectively impacts the early childhood care and education community.
