FantastiKids Academy is dedicated to providing a well-rounded educational environment that emphasizes learning, playing, friendship, family and community.
The purpose of early childhood education is to prepare each child for successful transition into the elementary school setting. We respect that every child learns differently and we recognize that children come from diverse backgrounds. We communicate with the children at their eye level in a positive, encouraging manner to build effective student-teacher relationships. Our school is a place to have fun and build friendships as well as explore, create and inspire. Happy kids and happy families are what will continue to make us successful; therefore, we are dedicated to the following goals for all children:
*To provide a loving, safe and clean environment supported by a nurturing and enthusiastic staff.
*Utilize a hands-on, multi-sensory approach to learning and encourage each child to reach his/her milestones.
*Foster an environment of acceptance, self-esteem, and belonging.
*Guide each child’s growth physically, intellectually, and emotionally.
*Initiate exciting, innovative, developmentally appropriate activities that encourage learning and socialization.
*Ensure comfort and peace of mind that we are doing our best for each of our children, every day.
