At NOVA Safe Hands Academy our Early Learning Matters (ELM) curriculum is a comprehensive, research-informed program to support the optimal learning and development of children from birth to five years of age. Incorporating language, mathematics, creative thinking, cognitive development, social and emotional learning makes for a fun-filled preschool education experience. We strive to educate young minds in a way that encourages enjoyment in learning.

 

Our goal is to expose children to simple lessons with many opportunities for them to explore their creativity, as well as the world around them.

Our vision is a nurturing, educational and fun environment for every child. We believe that exposing children to a variety of fun learning experiences will stimulate their interest and provide opportunities for them to explore and gain a sense of the world around them.

 

Our uniquely developed preschool curriculum utilizes "Inspired To Learn Method" that provides endless opportunities to apply and expand each child’s early language, math, and social-emotional skills through well-guided engaging group projects inspired by the children’s individual interests and imagination. In doing so, children can naturally develop the love of academic learning beyond the preschool environment and life-essential skills needed for effective interaction, critical thinking, problem-solving and team-building spirits.

*****************************

Our Mission is to provide care and early childhood academic learning with integrity, transparency and love.

 Our curriculum offers a continual stream of learning opportunities for every child enrolled in our programs.

A typical day in our center includes many opportunities for purposeful play-based learning activities that also provides children with the opportunities to learn, practice, and reinforce their understanding of important early academic skills (literacy, mathematics, logic, cultural explorations and problem solving).This time-tested approach to teaching young children through encouraging creative play provides children with endless fun opportunities that fully engage their creativity and imagination, and fosters meaningful early childhood learning.

  ​​By ensuring an inclusive environment that is conducive to learning but also allows children to enjoy being children, we can target the different developmental stages of each child. Through early academic learning, cooperative play and creative activities, we are able to ensure that every child in our center reaches their social, emotional and physical milestones naturally, while having a blast!

*****************************

At NOVA Safe Hands Academy, we believe that every child, regardless of their age and developmental abilities, is entitled to all of the exceptional offerings in our brand-new state of the art facility. What we offer our families include:
