Our Philosophy

Our goal at Foundation Learning Academy is to establish a community where each child feels happy, safe and secure; and where each adult feels welcomed, respected and valued. It is within this environment that children develop a capacity for peace, acceptance of individual differences, and a lifelong passion for learning. We strive to meet all the needs of each child – social, emotional, physical and cognitive. Therefore, it is our goal to provide a solid foundation for each child’s wellbeing and education to build upon them as they grow older.

Recent research on infant brain development emphasizes the importance of interaction with the caregiver. Our nurturing teachers sing songs and read stories to encourage language development. Parents work with their infant’s teacher to set their child’s schedule to ensure consistency between home and Foundation Learning Academy. At the time of enrollment, each parent is connected with an online application called HIMAMA; to keep families and teachers connected. The app details everything that occurred that day including feedings, nap times, and diaper changes. Teachers also send multiple pictures and videos on a daily basis to capture the child’s most precious moments and milestones. Our program is also aimed at helping the child learn the skills needed for the next step in their life. We focus on skills such as sitting, crawling, walking, holding his/her bottle, self-feeding, sign language and saying basic words. Floor time/tummy time is another important part of the infant program. It helps the child develop large muscle skills, interact with his/her surroundings, and become more independent. Love and nurturing are a huge part of infant care. Our infants are held, hugged and cuddled as much as possible.

Our Older Infant program goes far beyond other childcare centers. At Foundation Learning Academy, our Older Infants are made to feel safe, secure, and happy. This class gives warm and caring teachers an opportunity to bond and develop trust with the little ones. These energetic little ones are constantly growing and learning, therefore our program is aimed to channel their energy into positive learning moments by giving them ample room to move and explore.
