ACE offers a developmentally appropriate approach by following a curriculum based on the needs of each child as a unique individual. Our structure is built by focusing on the relationships between, staff, children and families. Our program fosters creativity, self esteem and growth based on encouraging our students to think outside the box. We offer a variety of activities each day that takes each child's interest into consideration.
Our understanding of how unique all children are is what makes ACE's program function to its full ability and is what our program philosophy stands for. The key element is offering a wide range of activities that meet the needs of each child’s interest. We encourage our students to think independently while helping them implement their own ideas and creativity. Our classroom space is carefully designed with a warm, exciting, innovative approach behind it that make all children feel welcome and engaged. We offer a variety of activities and enrichment programs daily that are up to each individual child's choosing on what they want to participate in. Our main goal is to provide a program and space where all children feel safe, comfortable and at home.
S.T.E.A.M. is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. S.T.E.A.M. Is an important part of our programming that will be implemented each day at ACE. Students have the opportunity to choose daily from a wide variety of structured activities led by our staff. ACE implements what we like to call "Out of the box thinking". This time encourages our students the space to be independent. Our staff will help guide them through problem solving methods so that students can create and implement their own ideas and visions as part of our ACE day.
