and never outgrows it." -Frank Howard Clark
Infants - Our Observers
Creative Minds Academy understands the importance of early education and that is why we are one of the few preschools in West Palm Beach offering infant care starting at 6 weeks old. Exploration and discovery is just the beginning for your young observer and we understand the importance of ensuring a safe, nurturing, and educational environment during these early years. The care for your child should not be taken lightly and because we understand this, our teachers have special training in infant care. We love, cuddle, sing, and stimulate them through play by using physical movements to develop strong bodies. We also develop their cognitive skills by teaching them sign language and music. We understand how important the care of your child is and because we recognize this, we consider it a privilege to care for your infant.
One Year Olds - Our Investigators
Two Year Olds - Our Explorers
Creative Minds Academy realizes the independence and exploration that comes when a child begins to learn and grow older. We encourage their natural ability to investigate and explore the world around them, while developing their listening, cognitive, social, and language skills in preparation for preschool.
In the two year old room, we introduce them to the A Beka Curriculum which helps them identify letters, colors, shapes, numbers, and sounds. Starting this process early, will better help prepare your child for future learning.
Three Year Olds - Our Adventurers
Four Year Olds - Our Pioneers
Creative Minds Academy believes that hands-on learning is key in the development of pre-schoolers to successfully integrate into Kindergarten. This preparation begins by introducing them to math, language development, and social skills. We provide a safe and challenging environment encouraging their natural ability to be adventurous and explorative.
In an effort to prepare your child for Kindergarten, Creative Minds Academy offers VPK (Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten). Our Voyagers meet from 9am-12pm or 1pm-4pm. We also have our full day wrap around care known as the Discovery Room.
Our Discovery Room Outstanding in its educational focus, designed to reach beyond traditional class setting and teaching strategies, we cultivate your child's genius using the Theory of Multiple Intelligences.
The Discovery Program also has an emphasis on "Our World". Every month, children are taught about a new country, taking field trips associated with that country. Our Discovery Room will teach your child to read, write, introduce them to other languages, and teach them how to make a portfolio of their work throughout the year. We understand the importance of education and preparation, and do our best to provide an outstanding educational experience.
Creative Minds Academy's Aftercare Program offers academic and recreational programs for children after school. In addition, we also offer special programs for early-release and no-school days as well as programs for the winter, spring, and summer break.
Our program is run by a Certified Instructor ensuring that each child is in a safe and engaging environment, having the opportunity to complete their homework assignments. We offer homework assistance and tutoring if needed.
We create a relaxed atmosphere where children can explore their creativity in the art room, shoot hoops on the basketball court, or relax in our media room and read a book. We draw upon the most effective academic, fitness, and nutritional programs to make learning more fun and keep them challenged.
