Academy emphasizes hands-on learning geared to each child’s
developmental readiness. A glance around any of our classrooms is
evidence of all the ingenuity and effort our teachers put into their
work. Here, teachers are expected to be adaptable, flexible and creative
since they must always be responsive to different learning styles. They
are dedicated to supporting and challenging a child as an individual as
well as a member of a group.
