Our approach to education

We have a simple mission, to Prepare Children for the Future and we are proud to be serving the community since 1996.  Our developmental learning center is for young children from six weeks to 12 years of age. We offer infant, toddler, preschool, and school age (kindergarten and above) part time and full time programs.  Our caring staff provides a circle of support, encouragement and nurturing which makes Kids 1st Academy the next best place to home.

Kids 1st Academy uses a Comprehensive Learning Curriculum that is aligned with the State of Ohio’s Early Learning Standards. The program is based on the philosophy that children learn best through hands-on activities.  The program reflects the belief that children need the balance of child-initiated and teacher facilitated activities each day.

In addition, our program incorporates the proper amount of e-learning and Internet based educational tools. Each classroom from 3 years of age and above has monitored access to computers.

For our Preschoolers, Kids First Academy’s curriculum goes beyond teaching traditional academic skillls and promotes the latest approaches in cognitive science. According to a recent article in the New York Times, “Many classes devote mere minutes a day to math instruction or no time at all, recent studies have found- far less than most children can handle.”

Ultimately, the program enhances the development of the whole child- social, physical, and cognitive and promotes a sense of self-awareness and self-confidence in your child.
