Family owned and operated, Mary’s ABC Academy Day Care Center is considered by many to be a hidden gem. Mary and her daughters, Jessica and Carol, have 12 years of experience providing a socially sound and robust educational foundation on which children can build a successful future. Mary’s offers children’s daycare, educational programs, and preschool. Children learn respect, to share, and above all, they learn that learning is fun!
Moreover, communication with parents is vital to the progress of every child under Mary’s care. Parents receive regular updates on their child’s classroom experiences and every new milestone is shared. Naturally, every parent must be involved with their child’s developmental journey and learning experiences.
Wellness is also important at Mary’s ABC Academy Day Care Center; they teach every child healthy eating habits, teach safety habits, and provide opportunities to play and exercise. These activities build self-esteem, an essential element in early childhood development.
When you first walk through the doors, you’ll notice that Mary’s is a state-of-the-art, immaculately clean daycare center for toddlers and pre-kindergarten age children. The spacious facility is a bright, clean, and fun place for your child to play and learn. The nurturing and experienced caregivers foster a warm and welcoming atmosphere in which your child will feel safe and can grow.
Mary’s staff creates opportunities for your child to explore and learn about the world; Mary and her staff of experienced and highly trained teachers work one-on-one with each child in a safe, clean and secure environment. One of their primary focuses is working with the children to develop their fine motor skills. Our teachers promote independence and foster your child’s self-confidence by encouraging creativity and a positive attitude and by developing healthy habits.
Toddlers learn constantly, and Mary’s educational programs center around the toddler age. Every child gets the special attention they need and deserve, and a schedule of activities is developed for each child’s individual needs. Children feel safe and secure when a routine is followed.
Pre-K is important, and Mary’s recognizes the importance of consistently following a daily schedule when it comes to a young child’s education. However, they understand that each child grows and learns at their own pace. The curriculum is designed not only for a child’s age but also for their individual stage of learning.
The educational programs at Mary’s ABC Academy Day Care Center also include activities such as music and dance classes, as well as field trips. Mary’s preschool program prepares your child for kindergarten. Activities like reading aloud during circle time to drawing and painting with watercolors help to develop a child’s self-expression skills.
Participating in the activities of daily life also helps to mold a child’s character. For example, during mealtime, the children participate in setting the table; this fosters a sense of responsibility, which should be introduced at a young age. Mary’s encourages participation in all daily activities, helping to not only form good habits and a sense of responsibility, but to also stimulate creativity.
Mary’s serves healthy breakfast, lunch, and 2 snacks daily, and meals are cooked on the premises. Children also get to play in an enclosed gym, even when it’s cold, windy, and snowing outside.
