Our Mission Statement

WHAT'S OUR GOAL

“Inspiring Every Child’s Passion For Learning Through Diverse & Meaningful Experiences.”

Our Philosophy Statement

I believe that the first five years of childhood is the most important time for development and learning.  I have developed a program that will encourage children to learn in an environment that is happy and safe.  It is my goal to empower the children with the skills they hopefully will use throughout the rest of their lives.  We have a “Whole Child Development” philosophy that features a full day of developmentally appropriate and engaging, child-initiated learning activities.  This will allow children to develop socially, cognitively, emotionally and physically. 

Our Curriculum

We strive to provide the highest quality of education. To ensure all students receive a high standard, we use the researched based curriculum called Creative Curriculum. With this curriculum, students are able to explore the environment on their own, develop socially and emotionally, learn life skills, and achieve the academics needed to have a successful preparation to kindergarten. Children learn by doing, it is both fun and educational. The activities that are chosen are open ended, which means they grow at the level of the individual child. Children will have free choice time along with structured activities throughout the day. A lot of their learning will come during play and consistent interaction to capture those “teachable” moments. (Example: when they learn about an apple they touch it, smell it, cut it open, taste it, talk about what’s inside, where it comes from, how it grows, where we can get it. We can also talk about how it tastes and the colors of them as we read about them). Creative Curriculum focuses on eleven interest areas or activities in the program environment: blocks, dramatic play, toys and games, art, sand and water, library, discovery, music and movement, cooking, computers, and the outdoors. It helps teachers understand how to work with children at different developmental levels to promote learning and guides them in adapting the environment to make it more challenging.

In the infant and toddler rooms we use Creative Curriculum (there are individual developmental plans for each of the infants under the age of 12 months). There are so many ways to help them explore and develop. One of the important goals of our center is to help these little ones develop a sense of security and bond with their teachers. We want to ensure that they will be loved and supported as they begin to explore the world around them. This is when we have the opportunity to help them learn and develop different skills. A lot of their learning will come during play and consistent interaction to capture those “teachable” moments.  Even though these are very busy rooms, there is plenty of structure and guidance to ensure the learning environment is great while maintaining the safety of the children.

Classrooms

FROM INFANT TO PRE-KINDERGARTEN

 

Infant

Approximately 4 weeks – 12 months

In the Infant Room, our main goal is for the children to develop trust in their teachers and a sense of security in their environment. We want the children to develop self-awareness, self-regulation, self-soothing and begin their communication/social skills.

Weeble Wobble

Approximately 11 months – 18 months

In our Weeble Wobble Room one of our primary goals is to keep them safe while they are learning to explore, climb and walk around the classroom.  We encourage the children to create relationships with their teachers and peers.  We help them develop gross and fine motor skills.

Toddlers

Approximately 16 months – 30 months

In our Toddler Room we follow the Creative Curriculum. The teachers do weekly lesson plans based on the interest of the children. We encourage the children create relationships with their teachers and peers as well as develop gross and fine motor skills.

Preschool

Approximately 3 years – 5 years

In our Preschool Classrooms we use the Creative Curriculum and Teaching Strategies Gold as our assessment piece.  We have full and half day options available.

Hi! My name is Mrs. Erica and I am a teacher in the Preschool Four room. I have been teaching for 19 years. I graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Prior to working for Academy 4 Lil’ Angels I worked for both Utica Community Schools and Warren Consolidated. My goal as a teacher is to make my students independent and to fall in love with school. I want them to come to school and realize that learning can be an exciting and fun experience. I love working with children. I have a daughter named Hannah and a son named Joel. We love to go on lots of vacations to sunny places down south. We are big fans of going camping and being outdoors.

“Both of my children come to the school. My son is in one of the programs and he loves both of his teachers. The staff is very helpful and friendly, not to mention they will personally go out of their way to help you out. The bus driver drops off and picks up my daughter from school and brings her back to the center every day, which makes it easy on myself as a parent and it also makes it convenient to have both kids at the same place. I just want to say thank you to the staff and to Ms. Angie.” – Victoria L.

“This academy has been like a second home for my son. The staff truly care about him. They are always striving to improve themselves so the kids have access to latest and greatest best practices. At two years of age, my son has access to activities and procedures that support his reading, math, science, problem solving, gross/fine motor skills, health/safety and so much more. I truly believe my son will have such an advantage when kindergarten comes around because he has experienced all of the support from the staff at Academy 4 Lil Angels. If your looking for a place that feels more like family than daycare, Academy 4 Lil Angels is the place.” – Brittani C.

“Great staff! Our son and daughter have been enrolled for over a year and love it. They enjoy the friends they have both made and have grown immensely with what they have learned from the staff.
