At Academy of North Palm Beach, we foster an environment that encourages emergent learning. Building upon the interests of children, our teachers facilitate the learning of the students by encouraging them to take an active part in constructing their ideas and knowledge. Our educational philosophy is founded on the idea that critical thinking skills are gained through play, constructing, imagining, experimenting, and dialoguing with others; best-preparing children for a life-long love of learning.
Our philosophy focuses on the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development of our students by fostering an environment that provides ongoing opportunities for age-appropriate play and activity.
We strive to provide a nurturing, safe, & stimulating yet calm learning environment.
The Creative Curriculum
At Academy of North Palm Beach, we follow the Florida State Standards for Twos through Pre-K/VPK, and we use “Creative Curriculum (GOLD)” to present and implement these standards. Our curriculum is hands-on and designed to be à la carte to support and enhance the individuality of each student. Our exploratory learning centers are planned each week with pre-established learning goals, and objectives focused on teaching through play.

Developing the Whole Child

We have a rich and stimulating preschool program based on a philosophy of “Learning Through Play”. The focus is on the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development of the children, achieved through age-appropriate play and activity.

Parents of Academy of North Palm Beach have the opportunity to participate in their child’s preschool experience helping in the classroom usually once or twice a month, which we believe is a great way to learn from our Early Childhood Educators and to observe students in a social setting.

Students at the Academy of North Palm Beach are encouraged to develop nurturing and enduring friendships through carefully planned hands-on activities designed to foster social and emotional development.
