We pride ourselves in the below core offerings:
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.
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.
