Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Play-Based

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Imagine an alternative to traditional infant care, toddler care, and preschool that not only met your childcare needs, but also provided a transdisciplinary learning environment focused on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and out, and emphasized their development as young children and students by engaging them physically, intellectually, emotionally, and ethically.

In bringing this alternative to life, The New International Academy addresses the need for excellent caregiving and instruction with high teacher to student ratios, flexible programs, and local community involvement. The New International Academy provides premier child care services that are aimed at enhancing traditional day care methodologies and integrating extracurricular interests including arts and crafts, dance, theater, and physical education, into one comprehensive program.
