ARYA (All Round Young Achievers) Learning Center offers Mommy and Me Preschool Enrichment Classes for ages 18 months to 5 years in Newark, CA. We help young children learn in the comfort zone of their parents through guided and structured academic activities and play in a small group set up. These classes are taught by teachers with early childhood education background to help mimic a regular preschool environment for your child. We help lay a strong academic foundation at the same time helping children develop school skills such as social interaction, following instructions, sharing, etc...All this with Mommy and my Teacher !

The best way to describe our program is to quote an email that we received from a parent from our first batch of students in 2010 as follows "It was wonderful time we had at Arya with great love and care teaching staff for our little ones. We were one single family under Arya tree to learn and play with lot of fun and here is "The Fruits" we got from this tree

Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led, Co-op

From the Director:

" Best Laid Foundation Goes a Long Way ". We strongly believe that children who learn early with no boundaries can be more successful in their future. Our methodology is to mix academic learning with arts and craft, music and movement and gross motor skills in good proportions for an all round development. Achievement by definition is an act of completing something. We provide the tools necessary for your young ones to Achieve something great in the future. We help nurture an inclination towards academics and cultivate a love for learning in young ones. We help develop great leadership skills and more. The best part about our program is that " You as a parent get to stay with your child every step of the way ! " until they are ready for school years. We also offer a diverse cultural atmosphere where parents cam meet other parents who share similar interests while your child is making new friends for life.
