How We Prepare Your Children for Success

Our preschool center and after-school childcare programs are designed to prepare your child for long-term success.

We’re committed to developing top-tier programs for children aged six months to 12 years. When you choose The Learning Academy, your child will have access to all of the following:

  • Childcare Programs: Our childcare programs are geared toward infants and toddlers and are designed to satisfy their natural curiosity. Our curriculum is based on Ohio state standards, and your child will have a slew of opportunities to learn through play and structured activities.
  • School-Aged Childcare Programs: We provide high-quality care for school-aged children. If you’re looking for a safe and fun after-school program activity, The Learning Academy has you covered. We also offer before-school care if that’s necessary for your work schedule.
  • Academic Summer Camps: The last thing you want is for your child to forget everything they learned at school when summer hits. At our summer camps, children have the chance to engage with new academic material, all while having tons of fun.
  • Parent Involvement: We believe parent involvement is crucial to a child’s success. Our team strives to keep you updated every step of the way, using programs such as WatchMeGrow and Tadpoles. You can view live streams of your child’s room as well as access real-time updates on their progress.
