Individuality, Self Discovery, Imagination

For a child, every experience is an opportunity to learn how to be confident, competent humans, who can contribute their own individual qualities to the world. Every moment of a child’s life is an unprecedented opportunity to have experiences so precious they will last their lifetime. We consider the opportunity to nurture, teach, inspire and foster those experiences a privilege and an honor.

ABOUT THE ACADEMY

The Academy of Little Learners is a vibrant, NAEYC accredited, early childhood learning center for children between 12 weeks and 5 years of age. ALL provides high quality care combined with a strong educational foundation that focus on providing children with the tools they need for future happiness and success.

Our mission at ALL is to create a place where all children can learn through play, adventure, creativity and exploration. Where children’s self-concept and social skills are enhanced as they learn to get along in the world. A place that is fun, exciting and inspiring where children are encouraged to become independent thinkers and problem solvers. Where families can share an enthusiasm for learning and knowledge in young learners that will serve as a foundation for future success.
At the Academy of Little Learners, the philosophy and curriculum is based on the idea that children benefit from a balance of teacher directed and child initiated learning activities. We offer a developmentally appropriate early childhood education program that meets the needs of the “whole child” and encourages the power of play. We facilitate and foster the growth and development of young children physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually in a happy, safe and nurturing environment that encourages individuality, self discovery, cooperation, inquisitiveness and respect for themselves, others and their surroundings.

The incorporation of art, music, science, mathematics and language, cooking and nurturing provides children with an empowered relationship with the world around them.

Children need to be actively involved in their learning which is why it is our mission to provide all children with opportunities to ask questions, make decisions, search for meaning, be absorbed, engage in conversation, solve problems and resolve their conflicts.

For a child, every experience is an opportunity to learn how to be confident, competent humans, who can contribute to the world their own individual qualities and the capability to make a difference. Every moment of a child’s life is an unprecedented opportunity to have experiences so precious they will last their lifetime. At Academy of Little Learners we consider the opportunity to nurture, teach, inspire and foster those experiences a privilege and an honor.

WHAT OUR PARENTS SAY

There’s a lot of wonderful things to say about the Academy of Little Learners, and lots that we take for granted, like how clean and thoughtfully laid out the classrooms are, and how much natural light they have, and how much our child enjoys the fun outdoor space with natural wood structures and a canoe, and all the opportunities to learn and create in a play-based environment. But the real gem of the place is the group of teachers who care so exquisitely for our children. For all of them, we are so grateful.

As first time parents, we visited many child care facilities across the seacoast. Everything about Academy of Little Learners made our choice an easy one. Our first impressions on that day have all been confirmed, as we’ve been so happy with the patience and nurturing our daughter received as an infant, and her growth and development as a toddler. Jaimee and her staff provide a safe and caring environment, which was exactly what we hoped to find.

The Academy of Little Learners has provided a safe, nurturing and educational experience for my little one for two years now. I know all of the staff and teachers have my child’s best interest in mind and she has been soaring ever since she started. I feel blessed to have found such a wonderful preschool that fosters my child’s independence, creativity, and one that is well equipped with teachers who truly love what they do and the children they work with.
