Infants

An early love of learning starts… early! Apex Academy accepts children for early care as young as six weeks of age. Our Infant programs offer loving care for babies, and care is given according to the routines and schedules provided by the parents mixed with an introduction to music time (with instruments), sign language, and a beginning of Bible time. The teachers work with the Infants on meeting each of their developmental skills and often do fun sensory or art projects with the babies. Our Infant Teachers are dedicated to providing quality, nurturing care for each of the Infants in their care.

Toddlers

At about 12 months of age children enter our Toddlers program. Our first Toddler room is for children about 12 to 18 months of age. In the Toddler programs, the children begin utilizing their first A Beka Christian workbook to get an early introduction of colors and shapes. They also attend Bible classes and begin attending weekly Spanish classes and bi-weekly music classes. Teachers also use sign language in the classroom to help children communicate their needs while their verbal skills continue to grow. Our Toddler room provides a lot of floor space for children to play in centers, and participate in daily art and sensory activities. Our Toddler room teachers offer nurturing care while encouraging Toddler’s social and emotional development.

Old Toddlers

At about 18 months of age children promote to our Older Toddler room. The Older Toddlers room offers the same A Beka Christian curriculum, weekly Spanish class and bi-weekly Music class, daily Bible time and sign language usage in the classroom. The Older Toddlers classroom offers a variety of centers and opportunities for children to learn and grow in their developing skills. Children play dress up, work on their large motor skills on our climbing mats and sit at tables for structured art and curriculum times. Teachers offer loving encouragement for the children to use more words to verbalize their needs. They also work with the children for encouraging more self-control and preparation for early Preschool learning.
