ADVANCED LEARNING ACADEMY
"Enhancing the Minds of the Next Generation"
Welcome to Advanced Learning Academy. Here at our preschool, we promise to provide each child with a safe, clean, nurturing, educational enviornment in which they can flourish.
Our staff utilizes the Montessori teaching methods combined with traditional preschool activities. Children in our care receive individual attention and lessons that are developed with their particular skill levels in mind. Each child is treated as an individual and taught accordingly.
(See our "About Montessori" page for more information on the Montessori method of teaching! Also, check our our "Special Offers and Programs" page for current special enrollment offers.)
Our goal is to have each child feel safe and happy each day and to be fully prepared for kindergarten when it is time for them to move on to elementary school.
We are a certified School Readiness and VPK provider - certified by the Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida.
*All students recieve free breakfast, lunch and snacks each day!!! VPK hours are 4 hours, 8:30am - 12:30pm, instead of the typical 3 hour VPK program so that our VPK students can enjoy breakfast, lunch and snacks with our full time students - FREE OF CHARGE!
