UBUNTU Academy is an early learning center in the core of Kansas City, Missouri. UBUNTU means I am what I am because of who we all are. This supports the belief that it takes a village to raise a child. The core focus is to prepare our students to be kindergarten ready. Missouri early childhood education has suffered millions of dollars in budget cuts as of 2012. Children attending schools within the Kansas City School District face learning challenges due to accreditation and other issues. As a consequence, this area needs professionals interested in improving the face of early childhood education. We believe children who possess the fundamentals for kindergarten have a better chance to succeed in their learning.

UBUNTU Academy is addressing the need for early education and academic preparation of toddlers and pre-kindergarten children for entry to the public school district. Studies suggest that early childhood education increases school readiness and prepares children for academic learning. Children completing early education turn out to be more intellectual and have better linguistic skills. They have also found that children who get a jump-start on education have better math and reading skills. Not only are their cognitive skills increasing at a rapid pace but crucial behavioral traits like sociability, motivation and self-esteem are improved. Studies that followed children through their adult years confirm that investment in the early education of disadvantaged children pays extremely high returns down the road such as a measured improved success in college, higher income or even lowers incarceration rates. The social benefits compared to children who did not attend an early education program show that those who do acquire early education are able to relate to other students in a better way.

Canterbury Academy at Briarcliff

1701 NW Platte Rd., Riverside, MO

Canterbury Academy at Briarcliff is much more than just daycare. We offer infant, toddler, preschool and child care programs with a curriculum that prepares children to thrive in their next stage of development, including kindergarten readiness.

Our small group environments in each classroom enable teachers to tailor the learning to each child's skill level and provide them individualized attention so they're prepared for their next milestone. We do this through a Primary Care Group approach where each teacher works with small groups of children at a time, so no child is ever without a teacher to guide them.

Our approach to learning is play-based because we know children learn better while they're having fun, engaged and interested. We give them plenty of time throughout each day to play, explore, and enjoy physical activities.

Our school management team, teachers and other staff have early childhood care and development experience, and they really enjoy teaching and nurturing the children in our care!

We also focus on developing and nurturing important character traits and social skills through our age-appropriate "Kind Child" approach.

Families are a very important part of our school and we encourage a strong parent-teacher-child connection. We do this through many classroom activities and events designed specifically for parents and children to participate together.

Open and ongoing communication with our families is important, and the most effective way we do this with parents is face-to-face whenever they drop-off their children in the morning or pick them up in the afternoon. We have an open-door policy, so you're welcomed to come in or call to chat about whatever is on your mind at any time.

We're very picky about our menu choices, so children receive a nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks every day that are included in tuition.

We provide parents peace of mind by giving children an exceptional education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home!

Please contact us to schedule a visit, meet our caring and nurturing team, and see for yourself how our school is a very special place for your child to learn and grow.
