History of the early childhood program at Higher Learning Academy
Higher Learning Academy was conceived in the year of 2004. The Board of Directors devised a plan to offer not just another preschool or daycare but a Learning Academy: a preschool where each of its senior teachers would possess degrees in the area of Child Development.

With this goal in mind, we have put together an academic program that will meet the totality of each of the children entrusted in Higher Learning Academy’s program.

Staff
HLA teachers are professionals and serve as positive role models and provide care that is supportive, nurturing, warm and responsive to the needs of every individual child. Our teachers show love through their words and actions, working together as a team. All teachers have completed a federal background clearance and received CPR and First Aid training biannually.
