Dear Families and Friends,
The Burlington Academy is pleased to announce the
Program Offerings for our 2018-2019 Academic School Year.
Registration is underway!
The superior educational experience your children receive at The Burlington Academy is a critical investment in your child, which lays a strong academic foundation for their future. As new Early Childhood Education research continues to prove the importance and criticality of education during the early years, we find the needs of the young child have increased. Therefore, we continue to offer a high level of excellence in our programs to adequately nourish children at their present stage of life, and prepare them for Kindergarten and the years beyond. Our faculty is educated on all the Connecticut State Department of Education Early Learning Developmental Standards, the newly revised standards for early childhood education. Our teachers are also CPR, First Aid, Medications administration, and Epi-pen administration certified. Additionally, we are currently
working toward becoming accredited with the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), in an effort to continually pursue school wide improvements on every level.
The Academy’s exceptional curriculum focuses on the vital components of healthy social and emotional development, and early intellectual and literacy education to prepare children for the new expectations of full day Kindergarten and beyond. Elements of our curriculum include, but are not limited to: "Handwriting Without Tears", Character Development Education, Second Step (a social and emotional skills program), Composers of the Month, Artists of the Month, Science, Computers
and Technology (exposure in appropriate and small doses), Cooking, Yoga, special visitors, and field trips, in addition to enrichment such as Music, Spanish, and Sign Language Classes. Small class sizes allow for the individual attention children need, and our three buildings, two large playgrounds, and 6 acre campus offer a variety of learning environments. We are open from 6:30am-6:30pm for the convenience of families and accommodate children for extra classes whenever we are able to make life easier at times when a family needs such support. We maintain superior standards and high teacher qualifications to continue offering children the very best early childhood experience possible in the Farmington Valley.
We rely on our well-earned reputation and word-of-mouth testimony to inform new parents about our school and the exceptional programs offered at The Academy. We appreciate parents spreading the word, and through our Family Referral Program, families receive a $100 tuition credit on their student’s account when they refer another family who enrolls with us.
We appreciate you entrusting your children’s early childhood education and enrichment to us and are committed to perpetually striving to exceed your expectations. We look forward to enjoying a wonderful 2018/2019 school year experience with your family!
