Taking The Stress Out Of Homework

Your child takes on their school assignments with confidence, knowing they have the support and guidance they need to succeed. New and difficult concepts become fascinating challenges when help is at hand.

Care And Attention From The Experts

A team of experienced and qualified teachers watch over, encourage, and care for your child. Together they build trust,  rapport, and a stable relationship, so your child knows they are in safe hands.

My First Academy 2018

A Focus On Emotional Growth Aids Development

Besides getting the academic guidance they need, your child enjoys consistency in a familiar and engaging environment, where they build the confidence to be themselves and explore their passions. 

Healthy Snacks Fuel Brains And Bodies

A snack at 5.00 pm gives your child the necessary energy boost to ensure they stay focused and well regulated. The emphasis is on fresh fruit, vegetables, and nutrient-rich ingredients, to promote healthy habits.


Time With Friends Strengthens Bonds

Your child builds fast friendships and solid relationships with their after-school peers, broadening their social spectrum and deepening those all-important social skills while playing and having fun.

Building Strength In The Fresh Air

Plenty of opportunities for outdoor play give your child the chance to learn new skills and games, make new friends, develop their physical strength, and a love for being outside in nature.

school age creates a sense of familiarity

Familiarity Creates A Sense Of Belonging

As part of the after-school community, your child feels involved and included in a team. They are part of the family and take pride in their identity, promoting confidence and a sense of self.

My First Academy uses a proprietary curriculum, complemented by Frog Street Pre-K and Nemours Reading BrightStart.
Unlike some daycare centers, we have an educational curriculum that starts in our infants’ classroom.
From age one. Children participate in various activities throughout the day, some of which are messy or athletic, and play outdoors daily, weather permitting. Because of this, it’s our policy that children must wear their My First Academy polo from Monday to Thursday. Additionally, no open-toed or open-backed shoes are allowed. The most appropriate shoes for participation in school activities are rubber-soled sneakers with socks.
Yes, we require all teachers to be First Aid- and CPR-certified.
Per the Department of Children & Families, My First Academy staff have three background screenings: local, state and FBI.
Generally, we begin potty training at two years old. However, in some cases, we start sooner.
