Welcome to “Little Scholars Academy”
The mission of the Little Scholars Daycare is to provide safe, affordable, high quality child care for children while they grow. In doing so, we support families in their efforts to accomplish their goals. We provide a home like environment where children are encouraged to develop at their own pace. Little Scholars Daycare is committed to the families we serve, providing support and encouragement.
At Little Scholars Daycare, we know each child is unique; therefore we are sensitive to their social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs. We provide a loving, nurturing, and creative environment for children. Our philosophy is simple – we will strive to provide a warm, secure and safe environment together with the highest quality learning through play environment for children and their families.
Our infant program focus on building meaningful relationships with our families, built on trust, care and attention. By recognizing and acknowledging the needs of each individual child, infants feel secure and safe in their environment and thus creates a strong foundation to support the rapidly developing social, emotional and physical needs of infants while they explore the world around them.

While the focus is still largely on their primary care, Jr. Preschoolers begin to take their first steps towards greater independence. We promote their development through play and natural exploration of their surroundings. We begin to lay the basis for positive social interaction and support their positive relationships with peers. We focus on using our words, being gentle with our friends, sharing, and turn taking.
Montessori Based Preschool
3 Years +
The Montessori method recognizes the uniqueness of each child and allows the child to develop according to her/his inherent abilities. Our curriculum introduces children to Maria Montessori’s five developmental areas-practical life, sensorial, math, language arts, and culture science. In a carefully prepared environment, a variety of authentic, Montessori materials is arranged to appeal to their love of logic and order and their natural desire to learn. Children are guided through various lessons and have the opportunity to explore their unique interests and talents.

Before and after School
It is our ultimate goals to provide high quality care in a safe environment filled with creative learning experiences and recreational activities. The classroom environment is a place where the child can do things for himself/herself. It brings out his/her potential, and is constructed to satisfy his/her physical, mental and spiritual needs. We recognize the importance of leaving room for children to have time outside school hours to have fun, to explore, to wonder, to socialize, to relax, to be quiet and to be alone. Balance is valued. We recognize the importance of a healthy mix of physical and sedentary activity, and individual pursuits balanced with activities involving others.
