Early Preschool Program
(Ages 2 1/2 to 3 year-olds)

At On Purpose Academy,  we understand the energy and curiosity of toddlers. For 2 1/2 to 3-year old learners, our curriculum is challenging, engaging, and age appropriate. Our activities present them with new opportunities to grow and explore and build a foundation for successfully transitioning to Preschool. Our Early Preschool is child-paced while still fostering important developmental skills to make learning fun and memorable.

What we offer our energetic Early Preschoolers

  • Building language — Each day, toddlers have the opportunity to build their vocabulary and strengthen their language skills. Word acquisition is a cornerstone of our Early Preschool.

  • Music and movement — It may look like silly, goofy play but our music and movement component helps toddlers obtain the necessary gross motor skills to become a successful Preschooler.

  • Ingenuity — Exploration is the key. Whether it is arts and crafts or working with clay, our early preschoolers will not lack in ways to develop their creative and artistic skills.

  • Physical Development — An active body is a healthy body while playing indoors. Each Preschooler has scheduled time daily to develop small and large motor skills. As strong body helps to develop a strong mind.

Knowing your Early Preschooler is safe is our #1 priority

  • Clean classrooms — Daily disinfected toys and play areas, and child-sized sinks for washing hands. We have postings throughout the Center to address the protocols for COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.

Preschool is a critical time for young learners. A successful Preschool experience means success in grade school and beyond.

Before and After School Programs

Our before and after school programs, school agers can build upon their education outside of school by participating in experiential learning activities and strong mentoring relationships that challenge them in fun new ways! 

Our before and after school programs, holiday breaks, and summer camps are designed to help kids dig a little deeper and find those ambitions, traits, and talents that will help them define their Purpose and personal greatness.

Social development is an important part of the role we play in each child’s life. Whether before and after school or during one of our camps, our programs give kids a chance to interact in fun, stress-free, and collaborative environments.   Our activities include art, STEM, coding, cooking and team building.

–Maria Montessori

"Free the child’s potential, and
you will transform him into the world."

We believe every child has Purpose and Value.  Finding a passion and unearthing an unknown talent go a long way in building a kid’s sense of self-worth 

Our programs serve as an impactful segue between the demands of school and the comforts of home, and our extended hours alleviate some of your stress, too! It’s about more than snacks and blowing off steam on the playground, we’re expanding their minds to new possibilities and encouraging them to act on new-found passions.

Every hour of every day we have each child’s best interest at heart, as they form lasting friendships, explore new experiences, and discover hidden talents. Our mission is to help school agers enhance their unique greatness beyond the school year program.

We also offer field trips, holiday breaks and summer camps built on a foundation of FUN and self-discovery. The most important lesson a child will learn is THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!

As we delve into what makes a hero SUPER, our campers will explore their own strengths, learn ways to bully-proof themselves, and be inspired to become a force for good by being a hero to others.

 

Inspired by the live-action game craze that challenges contestants to follow clues, solve puzzles, and race to freedom for the ultimate quest, this week combines quick thinking, communication, and teamwork to win the game!

 

Everything from writing and performing skits to stop-motion animation will be in the spotlight this week. Campers will discover new forms of expression and see how fun it is to be a part of a performance team where everyone’s uniqueness shines on center stage.
