Engaged Learning Child Care

It all starts with a teacher

Your child's environment at Almost Home Academy will be highly teacher-interactive - not only will your child be taught new things, but also make a new friend - their teacher. Reading, singing, and making conversation with lots of open-ended questions means your child will get the one-on-one interaction he or she needs the most for healthy social development.

Discovery is the name of the game with infants. Every moment of every day they are absorbing everything they are presented with - sights, smells, tastes, sounds, and sensations. At Almost Home Academy your baby will be presented with all sorts of new experiences to be explored in a calm, safe and soothing environment.

Learning to move and exist in the world

At Almost Home Academy our toddlers play and discover new things every moment of every day in a safe environment - rich with experiences that can be met safely and a predictable routine that will help your child thrive and learn. Your child's personality will truly start to shine through!

Safe interaction and social learning

At age two, your child will enjoy asserting themselves in every way possible - introduce them to an environment which they are safely able to control and enjoy in their own way. The introduction of open-ended play and learning social skills will be the focus of your child's curriculum in our Two's class.

Healthy, family-style meals served each day.

Meals Served Family Style

At meal-times your child will sit down with their classroom for a healthy family-style meal with both teachers and students participating. Per Wisconsin's Child Care and Adult Food Program, your child will be served breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack every day. The meals follow USDA guidelines and menus will be posted each day.

By serving a meal family-style, it allows our teachers to socialize and converse with your child and model proper table manners, as well as reminding the child to use good manners as well.
