Mission Statement

Happy, engaged children are ready to learn 

From language and literacy development to social skills and creative expression, the children at Early Start Academy Preschool are exposed to new activities and environments in which to thrive. We build on the strengths and interests of each child to help build a solid foundation where they can develop.  We believe that when children feel safe and happy they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.  Get in touch to learn more about us.
