At Everglades Academy our philosophy is that early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploring and discovery. Children are seen as individuals with a variety of developmental abilities, needs and interests, as well as different learning styles. Our school strives to encourage these qualities by providing a secure, nurturing environment for each child in our care.
At Everglades Academy, we offer days packed full of activities. All of our activities help the social, cognitive, physical and academic development of children. Kids learn best when they are having fun! We tailor our lessons plans to each child’s unique learning style. Whether your child is a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner, our activities will engage and inspire!
Children learn through hands on play and structured activities in our well organized learning centers. Our classrooms are organized into “learning environments.” These are the places within our classroom where the children can find the toys and materials related by theme, interest, and skills. These activities and toys can be used independently by the children, or with teacher direction, to reinforce and enrich skills and concepts they need. Learning environments are an excellent way to individualize the curriculum to meet the varying needs of young children.
We also believe that a child’s self-image is vital to his/or her growth and development. We work hard to help children develop a strong sense of independence and positive self-esteem. We also believe in helping the children to problem solve. By challenging children to try new things, explore new interests and praising their success, children begin to see themselves as capable and unique individuals.
