The Woods Academy
The Woods Academy is an inclusive Catholic community preparing boys and girls to lead lives of significance. Our academic program begins with Primary Montessori for students ages 3 – 6. It is a balanced and integrated curriculum in a classroom whose materials are beautiful, precise, and developmentally appropriate. Lessons are given individually. After Montessori we transition to a more “traditional” environment for our students in Grades 1 -8 that is filled with innovative and hands on opportunities; ways for children to truly understand what we are teaching. Our full time Reading Specialist and Math Resource teacher are in the classrooms working side by side with our teachers and our children, helping them develop the foundational skills they need to be successful. We prepare all students for the intellectual and social challenges at public, independent, and Catholic high schools. Our comprehensive high school placement program places nearly 100% of our students into their first choice high school. Outside of our strong academic program our children are exposed to a fine arts program, music classes that teach everything from drums of the world to classical guitar, technology that includes robotics and programming and coding, physical education classes twice a week in our state of the art gym or on our playing fields, and a library that encourages everyone to pick up a book and read. We seek to provide our students with an atmosphere that develops a lifelong love of learning by exposing them to a well-rounded curriculum that will develop their critical thinking and problem solving skills, not only for school but for life. The Woods Academy is where children come to discover their talents, grow in their faith, challenge themselves, and foster a strong desire to lead lives of significance.

Children In The Shoe East West Towers

The Children in the Shoe Inc. provides high quality early care and... education for young children. Our programs are play-based, emphasizing creativity, cooperation and social development. Our emergent curriculum is inspired and driven by the imaginations of children and supported by skillful, knowledgeable teachers, who plan developmentally appropriate experiences based on demonstrated effective early childhood practices. We strive to instill in each child, a joyful passion for learning and a secure social foundation based in cooperative play, self-expression and positive conflict resolution. Academics such as letters, numbers, science, geography, and social studies flow naturally from the creative and exploratory process of guided play. A child who has discovered that the learning process is fun and rewarding is truly prepared to meet the challenges of the more directed teaching methods that they will encounter in Kindergarten and beyond. The Children in the Shoe develops strong caring partnerships with each child's family through daily communication and by listening carefully to parents' ideas and effectively addressing their concerns. We offer regular parent teacher conferences and child assessments, as well as observations, resources, referrals and advice from infancy through preschool. It is our goal to enrich the lives of our employees by providing a safe, happy and supportive place of work. We endeavor to inspire our teachers and directors to continue to advance in the field of Early Childhood Development and to laugh and have fun with the children for whom we are so privileged to care.
