At Munchkin Academy we believe that the preschool years are essential to a child’s developmental progress as they embark on their elementary school years and beyond. We offer a high quality early childhood experience and provide a structured yet flexible learning environment. We believe that structure promotes trust within the children as they are better able to predict each day. At Munchkin Academy, we use the FunShine Express Fireflies Curriculum as well as the Jolly Phonics Curriculum to target all of the preschool standards. We understand and acknowledge that all children learn differently and it is our responsibility as educators to explore all teaching options and respect every child’s individual needs. We believe that play based learning in a healthy and safe environment promotes a fun and imaginative setting that all students can learn from and gain many fine and gross motor skills. Parent involvement is part of our program and it is our belief that if we all work together as a team each child can reach their full potential during their preschool years.
