Being part of Akers gives you an opportunity to watch children grow and develop into their own personalities. We offer so many great learning experiences while also reaching age appropriate milestones. I’ve learned to understand that Akers is like a second home to most of these kids and that is why we as teachers need to provide a nurturing and safe environment for all the children here. Something that they provide here that not every daycare provides is free childcare. It is super helpful to not have to worry where your child will go when you have to work. It is honestly a win win situation. Your child is in great care while you are also providing excellent care to other children, They are also super understanding with any appointments you need during the day whether it may be for yourself or your child. That is another bonus for me while working here.

Management help and encourage to reach my goals. They give you the tools to move up and get better with your children and teaching skills. Super flexible with time and let you have time for personal family appointments. I feel comfortable to share my ideas. Take consideration about what we would like and how we want things done. I feel heard and not ignored
Its a sense of family. Helping each other throughout the day.
Management is understanding when we have unexpected appointments come up and try to work with us and doesn’t leave the school in a bind

Our Active Minds curriculum incorporating McGraw-Hill’s Open Court educational resources meets and exceeds this – whether your child is infant to Pre K age. Akers Academy provides an enriching experience filled with many unique learning education opportunities during summer camp and our after school program for your school-age child.
Our Active Minds Curriculum is a comprehensive approach to your child’s early learning and development. We emphasize STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) learning at Akers Academy
Your child combines literacy skills, mathematics, language development and critical thinking every day. They work alongside peers in their age group to enhance their learning experience.
Our certified, experienced teachers guide your child every step of the way through hands on learning activities. Your child has plenty of room to explore their ever-expanding world and satisfy curiosity.
Teachers have computer tablets in their classrooms to fill out Electronic Daily Reports. These reports describe the student’s day along with pictures and videos so parents can have family conversations about what their child did and extend learning at home.
