Be A Part Of A Preschool With Family At The Core

In a family-owned and -operated environment, you and your child feel part of the community. Enjoy the reassurance of placing your child in the loving care of familiar adults who are on hand for your questions.

A Sparkling Space That Is Germ And Virus-Free

Through a rigorous daily cleaning regime, the on-site housekeeping staff keeps your child’s play spaces and classrooms well-organized and spotless, so they learn and grow in safety.

Livestream Lets You See What Your Child Is Doing Every Day

Check on your child via video five times throughout the day. An easy-to-use live streaming app allows you to catch five-minute videos of their fun, learning, and activities, so you’re always up to date.

Healthy Lunch And An Extra Snack Keeps Their Tummy Full

A nutritious meal plan ensures your child has the energy they need, with home-cooked meals, healthy ingredients, and freshness. A nourishing lunch plus snacks in the morning, afternoon, and 5 PM are nut-free, frequently organic, and packed with vegetables.


Academy Uniforms For Easy Mornings For You

Enjoy having one less thing to think about as you prepare for the day. Your child’s uniform is comfortable, practical, and bears the brunt of all the fun and messy play.

Comprehensive safety measures protect your child throughout the Academy. All entrances restrict access to authorized staff only. The fenced yard provides privacy and protection from the street, and internal-use cameras add another security level.

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.
