Pre-Kindergarten (3-4 years):
Discovery Bay Learning Academy offers three sessions for enrollment. Each session has a maximum group size of 10 children and runs for three hours per day, Monday-Friday. During this three hour timeframe, children will spend two hours in the classroom engaged in learning activities that focus on literacy, math, science and healthy lifestyles. During the remaining hour, children will be taken outside of the classroom to engage in variety of active play opportunities.
Kindergarten Prep (4-5 years):
We align our curriculum to Washington State Common Core Standards to ensure children finish the school year ready for Kindergarten. In addition, our Kindergarten Prep class includes daily reading groups to strengthen literacy skills and weekly swim lessons.
Creative Arts Academy (3-5 years):
At The Creative Arts Academy, learning experiences align with specific curriculum objectives in areas such as cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. Arts-integrated teaching techniques are proven to inspire young children and improve their ability to learn critical life skills. Research shows that the use of creative arts based teaching strategies results in a significant increase in math and literacy, and has a profound impact on future learning and success.
Kindergarten (5-6 years):
In our Learning Academy Kindergarten program, we strive to create a joyful learning culture where hard work is celebrated and intellectual pursuits result in extraordinary outcomes. Our learning culture engages the heart and mind of every child, supporting them as they cultivate positive and successful approaches to learning. Using a combination of both traditional and progressive methodologies, we help children develop a fascination for learning new things and find delight in mastering knowledge.
