Welcome to our school!
We want to take the time to sincerely thank you for considering our school for your family. We are a family operated center with over 20 years experience in early childhood education.
Our completely renovated facility serves families with children ages 6 weeks-13 years of age. Our 9 separate classrooms, each with its own designated playground area, ensure each age group receives the dedicated space needed to learn and grow.
Our school name, International Children’s Academy, not only references our location inside the International Trade Zone, but also our desire to embrace and introduce different cultures and languages to the children at our school. The names of each classroom are in different languages representing the age groups they serve.
I Piccolini – “The Little Ones” in Italian
Our infant classrooms are designed for children ages 6 weeks-18 months old. Each child in this classroom is assigned a primary caregiver who will follow a daily schedule including meal times, nap times, feeding directions, etc…, provided to us from home. Daily interaction and developmentally appropriate stimulation is given to each child throughout the day. This can include tummy time, story time, music, and sensory activities. We believe in providing a home away from home for your infant. This means we will give each baby individualized care and love in a nurturing environment. At the end of each day, parents will receive a daily log of their child’s activities for the day including meals, diaper changes, naps, and more through our parent communication app.
Les Tout Petite – “Toddlers” in French
Our toddler classrooms are designed for the discovery and development of curiosity and independence in children from the age of 18 months-2.5 years old. Child sized toilets and sinks allow the teachers and children to work together when children and families are ready to begin toilet training. The toddler daily schedule consists of a morning circle time, art projects, and daily activities that revolve around our monthly theme. Children are also provided lunch, morning and afternoon snack, and juice, water, and milk throughout the day.* Children in our toddler program can enjoy playtime outside in their own designated play area, separate from the older children.
Praescindo – “Preschool” in Latin
Preschool at ICA is the perfect combination of fun and learning. Our preschool program is divided into three classrooms by age and development. Children in our preschool engage in daily activities in the areas of science, math, literacy, character building, and social studies. Our teachers follow a research based curriculum which is one that focuses on the whole child. It includes monthly lessons on character traits such responsibility, kindness, and fairness in addition to 22 other learning domains. Children are given lunch, morning and afternoon snack, and milk, juice, and water throughout the day.*
