Now Enrolling for Fall
Discovery Bay offers a comprehensive kindergarten preparation program that starts with Preschool for 2 year old children and progresses to a Pre-Kindergarten class for 3-5 year olds.
At Discovery Bay Learning Academy we create an environment where children feel happy, engaged and well cared for. Our knowledgeable Early Childhood Instructors understand the delicate balance of stimulating curious, young minds in a warm and nurturing manner. Your child will experience the joys of learning, grow socially, advance academically and develop a healthy body and mind. Each child will finish the year prepared to succeed in future school settings.
- Highly Qualified Instructors - Lead Preschool Instructors have obtained minimum of a four year degree and are experienced in teaching preschool age children. They are passionate about teaching and possess the knowledge, experience, and skill set to understand and support children’s individual needs.
- Effective Curriculum Tools and Individualized Instruction -We are proud to offer the best research based, standards driven curriculum along with our TeachSmart interactive whiteboard system, to engage children in academic activities that meet a young child’s needs for multi-sensory, hands-on learning. In addition, our small class sizes and low teacher to student ratios allow us to provide targeted instruction to meet each child’s individual learning needs.
- Ongoing Assessment - Each child’s learning will be documented using the best assessment tools available for measuring children’s growth and development. Assessments allow instructors to measure children’s learning progress and help identify areas where children need extra support.
Discovery Bay Learning Academy offers three sessions for enrollment. Each session has a maximum group size of 10 children and runs for three hours per day, Monday-Friday. During this three hour timeframe, children will spend two hours in the classroom engaged in learning activities that focus on literacy, math, science and healthy lifestyles. During the remaining hour, children will be taken outside of the classroom to engage in variety of active play opportunities.
KINDERGARTEN PREP CLASS
We align our curriculum to Washington State Common Core Standards to ensure children finish the school year ready for Kindergarten. In addition, our Kindergarten Prep class includes daily reading groups to strengthen literacy skills and weekly swim lessons.
CREATIVE ARTS ACADEMY
At The Creative Arts Academy, learning experiences align with specific curriculum objectives in areas such as cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. Arts-integrated teaching techniques are proven to inspire young children and improve their ability to learn critical life skills. Research shows that the use of creative arts based teaching strategies results in a significant increase in math and literacy, and has a profound impact on future learning and success.
In our Learning Academy Kindergarten program, we strive to create a joyful learning culture where hard work is celebrated and intellectual pursuits result in extraordinary outcomes. Our learning culture engages the heart and mind of every child, supporting them as they cultivate positive and successful approaches to learning. Using a combination of both traditional and progressive methodologies, we help children develop a fascination for learning new things and find delight in mastering knowledge.
