Arts and Crafts

Creative expression is a key part of a child’s development. At Ladybug Academy, our licensed and experienced teachers develop age-appropriate coloring, drawing, painting and cutting activities that encourage each child’s creativity; and improve their  coordination, fine motor skills, and ability to process visual material.

Foreign Languages

SPANISH AND POLISH

There are numerous benefits to exposing children to foreign languages early on. A recent study has found that children (as young as 11 months) that were exposed to multiple languages demonstrate different cognitive patterns in their brain compared to monolinguals. In fact, some researchers have argued that the best way to increase a child’s intelligence and academic achievement is to expose them to multiple languages when they are young. At LadyBug Academy we provide weekly Spanish and Polish language instruction for children of all ages! We use music, arts and crafts, games and other activities to facilitate language acquisition. Most of the teachers are also bilingual and can communicate with our children in English, Spanish and Polish, which helps to reinforce language instruction.  

Math and Science

Our licensed and experienced care givers design age-appropriate activities that incorporate science and math concepts into our children’s daily program. Through simple crafts and activities, we encourage our kids to learn new things and explore the science and math concepts that exist all around us - in art, water, ice, gravity etc.

Children's Storybook

Language and Literature

At LadyBug Academy we recognize the importance of reading to children. As Albert Einstein once said, “If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” To support your child’s development, our experienced caregivers regularly provide opportunities for all our children to read and/or be read to. We host a daily story time at 9:30 am and have multiple quiet reading places that are accessible to our children.

Healthy Living

We promote a healthy lifestyle by exposing children to healthy habits. We encourage our kids to be active every day, play outside, choose healthy snacks containing fruits and vegetables, stay away from the screen and practice good oral and personal hygiene. We incorporate all healthy habits in daily activities.

Outdoor Activities

 Physical activity, free-play, and time spent outdoors are essential to healthy growth and development.  At Ladybug Academy we have a newly renovated outdoor playground designed to promote safe, creative and constructive play. Our staff also regularly lead outdoor nature exploration activities in the nearby park and in the community and encourage all our children to play, learn, and explore. We are committed to ensuring our children spend time outdoors at least twice each day.
