05 Sep Why Choose Pleasant Hill Academy?
Choosing a childcare program for your little one can be a daunting and difficult task. Deciding between a franchise school and an individually owned facility is just one factor in the decision- making process, and many parents are not aware of the difference between the two. While a child care franchise can provide structure and useful resources, schools can be limited with regard to curriculum choices and other policies.
At Pleasant Hill Academy, it is our mission to go above and beyond requirements set by a franchise agreement. We are proud to have been awarded every accreditation available in the child care industry and require our teachers to have more education than that required by a franchise.
Additionally, as an individual child care center, we are able to be selective with what is included in our curriculum as well as customize policies and procedures to meet the needs of our students and staff. We aim to continuously enhance our curriculum according to current research, incorporating the best alternatives and additions to introduce to children.
Our students benefit from our STEM Program, which provides children with opportunities to be innovative, creative, and inventive as they build strong foundations in five core areas of their education; science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Our state of the art technology department and SmartBoard educational products are the perfect way to get children acclimated to the world of computers and learn the skills needed for Kindergarten readiness. Our center also offers a number of enhancement activities such as Mandarin Chinese and music classes, both of which are included in your child’s tuition!
Meeting the needs of our families and going the extra mile to provide the optimal early education experience for our students are two of our main goals. Being an individually owned facility rather than one that is part of a franchise allows us to take every step possible to meet this goal, and we hope you will see this effort when you walk through the doors of Pleasant Hill Academy.
