Precious Cargo Academy sees early childhood education as the foundation to lifelong learning. Now is the time to create positive experiences with school, teachers, peers, and a learning environment. PCA strives to establish opportunities for play, cognitive development, laughter, and promoting social-emotional growth. Through our extensive research and adoption of the Creative Curriculum, we have afforded our teachers and children the right balance of skills, intellect, and global awareness. It is through our professional and dedicated staff that our philosophy comes to life in the classroom. Teachers are supported by an administration that is passionate about education, and always available to offer support, encouragement and assistance. Our educational program is based on the Creative Curriculum, which is a research based curriculum designed specifically to meet the educational, developmental, social, emotional and physical needs of the children attending Precious Cargo Academy. Every classroom, regardless of age, contains multiple learning centers for a large variety of ways to learn. The centers include Dramatic Play, Manipulatives, Art, Science, Library, Sensory Tables, and many more. These centers are designed to increase vocabulary, introduce new ideas, increase interest in literacy, encourage creativity, build self-confidence, and develop recognition of letters, numbers, sounds, shapes, and colors. Highlights of our balanced curriculum include: Spalding Phonics, Dolch Sight Words, STEM Mathematics Integration, Kindergarten Readiness, Common Core State Standards, and comprehensive assessment tools to keep parents involved, and aware of their child's Science, Technology, Engineering, growth and achievement.
