We have taken special care to screen applicants, ensuring that they meet our high standards for teaching and caring for young children.

You don’t need to worry that your youngster is playing with toys or involved in activities outside his or her readiness. Because of our spacious facility Gainesville FL Best Daycare and Preschool for 30 yearsand skilled staff, we can group children by age, for learning and play.

9. Cleanliness is a priority.

As a part of our Apple accreditation, we clean and disinfect our toys and classrooms multiple times a day—in contrast to other centers that conform to the state standard of once daily. Infant rooms are cleaned three times a day and changing tables are disinfected after each diaper change. Toys are regularly replaced. Every playground is meticulously maintained. And we adhere to a strict regimen for hand-washing, food preparation, and restroom protocol.

10. All children engage in stimulating activities.

Infants, toddlers, and preschoolers have different needs and interests. We foster those specific requirements by grouping them separately and developing the types of activities (indoors and outdoors) that are stimulating, fun, and safe. For example, we are teaching sign language to our one year-olds because we recognize that the activity stimulates their learning as well as fine motor skills. Meanwhile older children get involved in more advanced activities, like the hydroponic garden that we’re planning.

11. We welcome parental involvement.

Parents and families are an integral part of A Child’s Academy. You can feel free to drop by at any time. If you want to see what your child is doing, you can either visit the play area or classroom, or watch a monitor in our office to see uninterrupted activity.

Why our Parents Love ACA:

Click Here to Read what some of our parents have to say about ACA.
“Our daughter, Katie, has been at A Child’s Academy since she was three months old. We originally planned to have her there for one year until she was old enough to transition to the school that her older brother attended. However, it was such a great environment and Katie was so happy there that we never left! She has now been at ACA for almost four years. Katie has adored her teachers; they have been so attentive and have really helped Katie to learn and grow. Before she could talk, her teachers taught her some basic sign language to help her communicate a few key words. As she got a little older, Katie quickly learned all of her numbers and letters and now loves pointing out numbers and letters on signs and notes and billboards wherever we go. She frequently comes home and shares interesting facts that she learned about animals, different states and countries, or even famous people. The first time I heard my little three-year-old come home and tell me about Martin Luther King, Jr., I was so impressed! I attribute this to the great focus on learning in her classroom. There are even occasional “homework” assignments, which Katie loves because it makes her feel like she is such a big girl. We will be sad when it’s time for her to “graduate” and move on to elementary school, because we have really enjoyed our experience at A Child’s Academy.”
