Nestled in a beautiful botanical setting our small home-based daycare center offers top of the line child care service and unique nature-oriented program that fosters children's natural sense of wonder and joy of discovery, nurtures their imagination and stimulates them towards learning in general. At Edgewood Academy we believe that children learn best through direct experiences and interaction with people and the world around them. While emphasizing the development of the whole child, we are focusing on strengthening cognitive skills, gross and fine motor skills, language and communication skills through active, hands-on learning where nature-related experiences play one of the most important roles. Edgewood Academy is dedicated to providing a warm and inviting atmosphere that allows children to develop at their own pace. Your child's individual needs are respected and attentively taking care of. In our center you will see no lines to stand, only games to play; no school games, only preschool games; no patterns to follow, only materials with which to create; no complicated, abstract meaning that the child cannot comprehend; only ideas and things to talk about, relate to, compare with, match, fit into, try out, invent, discover and enjoy. Yet, at all times children are being continuously challenged by learning goals we set for them. At Edgewood Academy we foster your child's positive self image, along with his developmental growth in the areas of intellectual, social, physical, and emotional skills, through a variety of group activities, individual play, and quiet periods. Our program makes use of many play and learning materials that help the children gain confidence in their abilities to do and make things. We encourage and teach children to interact and communicate with others while retaining proper discipline without criticism. At Edgewood Academy we are parent-friendly. We welcome parent visit anytime, and we seriously consider all parent suggestions and comments.
