Philosophy

***Thank you for your interest in Little Creations Academy. Our goal is to provide children with a safe environment that nurtures self esteem and security. Our providers plan an abundance of open-ended activities within each day. Our children's day is highly enriched with endless possibilities, while providing both structured and flexible days. We strive to promote each child's growth emotionally, physically, intellectually and socially. We promote a educational program to promote learning through hands on play and discovery. Our Academy is semi-structured with individual activities, group activities, supervised free play time and supervised outdoor fun. Many of these daily activities will focus on early learning skills such as letters, numbers, colors and shapes.***
