Lehigh Children's Academy

Educational experiences that promote your child’s emotional, social, intellectual and physical development.

 

About Us > Philosophy

Mission
The mission of the Lehigh Children’s Academy is:

  • To provide quality care and education to children in a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate educational environment;
  • To provide a place for education and play that is inclusive of children of all abilities; and
  • To function as a model for best practice in early childcare and education by meeting or exceeding licensing and accreditation standards.

Philosophy
Lehigh Children’s Academy believes in creating lasting impressions for a lifetime of learning through educational and recreational experiences that promote your child’s emotional, social, intellectual and physical development.  We work collaboratively with families to encourage and support your child’s desire and potential to become an enthusiastic, independent, confident and inquisitive lifelong learner. Lehigh Children’s Academy provides a developmentally appropriate educational environment for young children.  We strive to offer individualized education and care based on each child’s unique abilities and potential. 

Lehigh Children’s Academy is committed to promoting and supporting all aspects of a child’s growth within an environment of respect.  Individual and group activities are designed to:

  • Foster basic skill acquisition through developmentally appropriate practices.
  • Create a learning and play environment that stimulates children physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally.
  • Allow for the recognition of each child’s unique learning style and developmental level.
  • Support teachers to enhance children’s learning by providing time, material and relationships children need.
  • Facilitate mathematical and scientific inquiry to develop an early knowledge base.
  • Develop language and reading readiness skills.
  • Enhance physical, social emotional and intellectual growth.
  • Build a sense of community for children and family by developing reciprocal relationships with each child’s family.
  • Value and celebrate each family’s unique composition and their cultural, ethnic, and linguistic background.
  • Celebrate each child’s individual strength and encourage the acceptance of self and others.

The development and training of Lehigh Children’s Academy staff is a continuous process and includes workshops, guest speakers and regular meetings.  Our staff are supported to visit and study best practices, and to continue their education in early education.

Your Family’s Participation
At Lehigh Children’s Academy, we believe it takes a village to raise a child and we encourage family participation in your child’s education.  Parent and teacher conferences are held twice a year for toddlers and up.  Parents are invited to join our parent teacher association, a voluntary group whose purpose is to help plan trips and activities, represent parent vision for your child, and create a sense of community.  Special events allow families to interact and get to know each other.  Support for families includes a library of resources for students and parents, as well as Parent Night Out.
