Our experienced teachers and caregivers are dedicated to providing high-quality care and early childhood education. At our center, your child will receive the best early learning experience! Program Our facility is open year–round from between 6:30 am 6:30 pm, Monday through Friday. We offer various flexible options such as full-time and part-time care for infants as young as 6 weeks, as well as toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children up to 12 years old, including children with special needs.

Our center has an open-door policy for parents, so you’re welcome to visit your child during our operation hours. This gives you the opportunity to see what your child is doing and at the same time, assess our staff and facility. Curriculum Little Learners Academy uses a Theme-based, structured curriculum. We aim to help each child develop physical, socio-emotional and cognitive skills. Our staff is very hands-on and always plans a daily schedule of activities focusing on specific skills to meet the individual and developmental needs. Daily activities include Reading & Writing, Math & Science, and Arts & Music. We have age-appropriate toys, books and educational materials accessible to the children. In addition to English, we expose your child to the Spanish language (we’re not a bilingual program, but this is a wonderful opportunity for your child to learn this beautiful language). Our Curriculum is tailored based on the child’s developmental milestones: Infants: We ask parents to complete a form asking for important information necessary to meet their baby’s individual needs. We provide a report sheet to parents once they pick-up their child, a report about their food/drink intakes, diaper changes, etc. Toddlers: This is the stage where we teach children the concept of sharing and the time for them to play with others. We teach them letters, numbers, colors, and shape. Teachers at this stage develop each child’s communication skills as well as fine and large motor skills. Before moving to the preschool classroom, potty training will be completed. Preschoolers: We create a stimulating environment for our preschoolers through imaginative play and creative arts. At this stage, we introduce Phonics and the Spanish program. We also encourage them to participate in fun activities such as dancing, singing, exercising and much more. Teachers work with parents to foster the child’s learning and independence.

The Compass School

The mission of The Compass School is to provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes your child's depth of knowledge while inspiring a... life-long love of learning. Through the Reggio Emilia-inspired approach, children are given the tools and support to steer through their own distinct paths of discovery. Our project-based curriculum encourages children to be active participants in the learning process and to develop the skills needed to explore their ideas, interests, and questions in a meaningful way. Philosophy True Reggio-inspired programs give appropriate attention to the look and feel of the learning environment both within the classrooms as well as in the common spaces of the school. Environment is often referred to as the “third teacher.” By giving consideration to how materials and documentation are displayed, the goal is to create an atmosphere that fosters creative exploration and demonstrates respect for children’s work. Classroom Environmental Guidelines Here are a few highlights of The Compass School’s environmental guidelines for teachers and administrators: - Classroom environments should be a reflection of the children, parents, and teachers who live and learn there. Items, objects & resources should be arranged in an enticing, imaginative, inviting, and/or thoughtful way- the environment should not feel cluttered or institutional. - Environmental emphasis on natural, every day, and “real life” materials - Documentation should be interesting rather than decorative, serious (not cute), engaging (not entertaining). - Visible documentation should be present to reflect work currently in process. Focus of documentation on displaying the creativity and thinking of children as it happens, as opposed to viewing documentation as a finished product. - Parents entering The Compass School for the first time consistently comment that the look and feel of the school is unlike any other preschool or child care center that they have visited. By adhering to basic principles and more, The Compass School strives to offer children a uniquely warm, inviting and child-centered school environment in which to explore, discover, and grow.
