Drawing on the Center's strong history of delivering family based fitness products, Silverlake Academy offers such daily activities as a three story soft playground, rock climbing, swimming, gymnastics, basketball, an adgjacent outdoor park and other age appropriate activities. Unlike daycares, children will not be sedentary in one classroom throughout the day. Silverlake Academy focuses on course work in art, music, math, science, writing and reading.
At Silverlake Academy, our childcare programs are centered around the idea that chilodren learn best through play. Through our curriculum, we help children to develop the four main skills that will be the foundation of their healthy and happy development: social, emotional, cognitive and physical.
Silverlake Academy offers seperate programs for each age group, ensuring that your child receives the best care and learning expirience at all stages of his or her development.
