Infants - 6 weeks to 12 months
Our priority at Next Generation Academy is to provide infants with a safe haven and parents with peace of mind.
We strive to make the transition of child care an easy one for everyone involved.
We provide days full of learning, playing, and love to help your baby grow. We base our infant curriculum on a list of milestones that an infant should know by certain ages. Our teachers track the baby’s progress from 6 weeks to 18 months. The caregivers in the classroom work with your children on each milestone to help them reach goals.
Our first step is to give the children a feeling of trust and confidence in themselves. Once that confidence is established babies can then focus their attention on learning other important developmental skills. The skills we work on in our infant room are:
- Gross Motor Skills
- Fine Motor Skills
- Language Skills
- Eating Skills
- Social Interaction
Our caregivers understand that every baby is different and will learn to develop on their own unique timeline. We want to be here for you and your infant as they take their first steps into a healthy, happy childhood. Knowing that Jesus loves them!
Toddler to Age 2
The ABCJesusLovesMe Preschool Curriculum is a comprehensive, research-based preschool curriculum focusing on Bible, academics, and development. Each curriculum contains goals and objectives to gauge the child’s learning and growth.
We believe children are blessings from God. He has created each child unique and special. Learning should be incorporated into the child’s day instead of controlling his/her day. We believe preschoolers should be able to explore, play, and learn new things through trial and error. Our simple and basic curricula allow success for the most energetic child!
Preschool: 3 Year Olds
Pathways for Preschool encourages three-year-old students to love learning!
We begin to prepare our children for kindergarten by reinforcing their pre-reading, phonemic, and letter recognition skills, and introducing them to math, social studies, and science through songs, rhymes, games, crafts, and centers.
Pathways for Preschool provides your preschoolers with enjoyable age-appropriate activities that encourage participation in every major area of learning—personal and social development, letter and number recognition, and motor skills development. Through the use of ideas, games, songs, and activities, this colorful preschool program will encourage creativity, keep your preschoolers’ interest, and instill an early love for learning.

5-10 Year Olds: Before and After School Care
Our Before and After School Program offers a perfect combination of homework help, creative activities, and plenty of fun with friends. School-Age children are at the time in their life where they are developing independence and trying to find their sense of self. During this critical time, our knowledgeable teachers help guide them to make smart and healthy decisions.
Our program will allow them to participate in games, centers, and engage in activities that will help them build self-identity, explore their interests and develop friendships.
We also make sure we have fun activities planned if it’s a wet day or if there’s a holiday coming up. Just because they’re in school doesn’t mean they can’t do the same fun crafts all our other kids are doing.
Your child will leave our center every day with a smile on their face and eager to come back for more!
