Whole Kids Academy aims to accomplish the following major goals when it comes to learning in our program:
- Ignite a spark and inspire a love for learning in all children - we vow to nurture every child's love and curiosity so that it continues to grow.
- Ensure that children learn, grow and experience new knowledge, ideas and experiences, at their own pace, each and every day inside and outside of the classroom.
- Build a solid, well rounded foundation for all children to ensure success in Kindergarten and far beyond.
Whole Kids Academy has invested a lot of effort into providing the very best resources, tools, and materials to provide an exciting, hands-on and comprehensive curriculum for our children.
Whole Kids Academy uses the well respected Creative Curriculum to harness our children’s natural interests and curiosities to explore topics in a more meaningful, hands-on and memorable experience. The Creative Curriculum is an engaging program which has incorporated the latest research and best practices to provide active learning in all areas of development and is delivered in a way that is exciting and relevant to each individual child.
Handwriting Without Tears
The Handwriting Without Tears® curriculum draws from years of innovation and research to provide developmentally appropriate, multi-sensory tools and strategies for learning and reinforcing literacy, writing and math skills. The program follows research that demonstrates children learn more effectively by actively doing, with age appropriate materials that address all styles of learning. It teaches effectively with joy.
Children will spend a significant portion of every day fully immersed in Spanish - they will read stories, listen and sing new music, learn and enjoy conversation with their teacher and peers.
Music will be enjoyed in two languages on a daily basis, we will sing songs, play instruments, listen to audio-books and engage children in music and movement activities.
Science & Technology
As technology’s role continues to grow in our increasingly connected world we will strive to provide children with a balanced age-appropriate experience and exposure. We teach through inquiry driven studies and reflect on children's prior knowledge, interests and what they've learned to make the new knowledge more meaningful to their curious minds.
Plenty of Sunshine and Exercise
We believe strongly in the value of adequate daily sunshine, fresh air and physical activity allowing children to burn some of their endless energy, boost their immunity and free their minds for more focused learning opportunities. We also embrace the opportunity to enjoy many of the wonderful resources in our community by taking the kids on monthly field trips so they can explore the world around them and truly bring the learning to life.
At Whole Kids Academy your children will be served nutritious, all-natural whole foods to fuel and sustain their young bodies and minds.
