Philosophy and Statement of Purpose

We feel that in order for a child to develop and have the confidence to explore his or her surroundings, first that child must feel safe, secure and loved. At Renaissance Kids Academy, providing this type of nurturing environment is our top priority. The staff members at Renaissance Kids Academy are individuals who truly care about young people and have been highly trained to care for and teach young children. As much as possible, we strive to provide a harmonious environment for your child to spend the day through the use of music, stimulating visuals, daily routines and many developmentally appropriate toys and activities.

Once a child is comfortable with the environment, caregivers and classmates, we strive to offer a variety of experiences that will give your child the opportunity to exercise his or her creative abilities as well as progress developmentally. Exposure to the arts is an excellent way for children to develop an increased sense of self-worth and self-esteem therefore, Renaissance Kids Academy will provide these experiences on a daily basis. We feel that it is important for teachers to be trained in the arts and so we offer regular training for classroom teachers as well as employ arts specialists who focus solely on providing experiences in art, drama, music and movement.

It is our hope that years after graduation from Renaissance Kids Academy, your child will remember the care and nurturing that they experienced. Also, that they were allowed to be creative and express their individuality through: the arts, play with classmates, interaction with adults and freedom of choice.

With these regular experiences to further development, we feel that your child will be equip to be a better learner and successful in today’s ever changing world.

That they: 1) develop a sense of trust in their caregivers and the environment of the Center, 2) develop an increased sense of autonomy, initiative, confidence, and self-esteem, 3) develop a love for learning and exploration of all topics including the arts, 4) develop and demonstrate pro-social behaviors such as cooperation, respect for diversity and empathy, 5) acquire learning and problem solving skills and 6) acquire logical thinking and verbal communication skills.
