Our School

Mission

Our mission is to provide children with continuous opportunities to learn and grow in an eco-friendly and holistic environment. We encourage independence and foster an environment, which is developmentally appropriate, stimulating and creative. We will achieve our mission through your child's daily interactions with committed, educators who are equipped with the knowledge to support each step of development and help expand your child's learning.

What to Expect

Upon entering a Tiny Turtle Academy classroom, children's engagement with materials & communication is immediately visible. Our staff is committed to organizing classrooms based on the needs of individual children. With an abundance of eco-friendly and intellectually stimulating materials as well as furniture that invites individual and group interaction, we believe in teaching methods that allow children to discover at their own pace. The integrity of each child as a classmate, learner, and teacher is greatly valued and strongly reinforced.

Diversity and Multiculturalism

In a society which is ever changing and highly multicultural, we recognize the importance of retaining children, families and faculty from diverse cultural backgrounds. We encourage our faculty to create experiences, which will allow children to make discoveries about themselves as well as their peers. Our approach to learning celebrates each child and their culture.

Daily Schedules

At Tiny Turtle Academy, the classroom is the center stage for all learning activities. One of the most important steps in development is feeling confident enough to take risks. To step outside of our comfort zone and have experiences which promote growth and meaningful habits of a successful lifelong learner. We believe that it takes a multitude of personalities and educators to be able to build this confidence in a child. This is why it is important that throughout the day children visit educational classes that are specifically equipped for each subject area. With their homeroom teacher present, children spend their days involved with the entire Tiny Turtle Team as oppose to one specific teacher. All children begin their day with their homeroom teacher and then travel to each subject specialist focusing on areas such as language & literacy, science, math, social studies, computer technology, library, music, physical education, art and theatre. All classes begin at 8:30 a.m.

“This note is to thank the entire team at Tiny Turtle Academy for being there for my son and I through some very challenging times. I have always felt at ease when dropping him off to school each morning. It was like I was dropping him off with a relative! I have watched my 6 week infant turn into a handsome well developed 5 year old who is excited about school. This is something that I could have never done alone! I am eternally grateful to each of you for your help in raising my son into a wonderful child - Thank you!”
