Every Child Deserves a Brilliant Beginning

Welcome to Stars & Stripes Learning Academy. We are extremely honored that you have chosen us to be a part of your child’s learning experience. When you bring your child to Stars & Stripes Learning Academy we realize that you are leaving your heart with us to care for and educate. We do not take that lightly. At Stars & Stripes Kids Activity Center our goal is to provide children's educational programs through physical activity that far exceed the norm. Our programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of each individual child. Our mission statement is and will always be: To build self-esteem, strength and dreams. We offer a safe and kind learning environment where the “child” comes first.

We put a lot of passion into developing programs that will not only challenge your child's physical abilities, but will also enhance their self-esteem, discipline, gross and fine motor development, creativity and imagination. We want to give each child that comes to our academy many wonderful activities and challenges that they will look forward to. We want to make learning fun!

Our program is designed to ensure your child’s seamless transition to Kindergarten. Children will have the opportunity to learn about themselves, each other, and the world around them through meaningful, enriching experiences. We will strive each and every day to prepare your child intellectually, emotionally and physically for Kindergarten.

Once again, we would like to welcome you and thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with your child. This is something that each member of our staff does not take lightly. Please know that we are always here for the child and the family. Together we can make great things happen!

Preparing Your Child for Kindergarten

At Stars & Stripes Learning Academy, principles of fitness and nutrition are incorporated directly into our daily curriculum. This is something that makes our program unique. While other programs are cutting physical activities from their curriculum in favor for more academic activities, we fully believe physical activities and academics can be integrated into the same program to provide your child with the best education experience possible.

In addition to our academic program, children will attend a daily 30 minute gym class instructed by experienced fitness coaches. It has been proven that physical activity promotes brain growth and development in young children. For this reason, we feel physical activities are extremely important to include in each and every child’s life. By laying the groundwork for a healthy lifestyle now, children will be more likely to make healthy choices in the future.

At this age, children require challenges, respond to motivation and crave praise. Recognizing that your preschooler needs to be engaged and nurtured at the same time, our highly trained staff gives them both the freedom and instruction to thrive.
