Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Day Academy has been in operation since 1995 when the local owners recognized a need in the community for high quality daycare. We have continued to grow since we opened, and now serve 240 total full-day and half-day preschool students. One reason for our continued growth is our commitment to provide the highest quality care for a reasonable price. We work hard at ensuring our staff is of the highest quality and the programs we provide are developmentally appropriate. In 2005 The Day Academy was accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (N.A.E.Y.C.). This is another sign of our commitment to quality. N.A.E.Y.C. accreditation encompasses our entire program, including curriculum, physical environment, health, safety, administration and staff. Our warm, family-oriented center welcomes your child every time he/she enters into a safe, loving and enriching environment."
