It's that time again! It's time to begin thinking about your childcare arrangements. Are they working for your family? Are you concerned that your child is lost in the crowd at their current daycare? Do you wish your child had more activity in their day? Are you pregnant and looking for childcare for your new little one soon? What is your school-ager doing after school to keep busy and active?? AcroKids Academy may be your answer!!
Here is a little more information about our programs:
AcroKids Academy is a full service childcare center located inside of AcroSports Gymnastics. We began 6 years ago with one classroom operating 2 days a week part time for children ages 3-5 years old. We now have 9 classrooms operating year round for serving children from 6 weeks to 5 years in our preschool academy, and kindergarten through 5th grade in our afterschool program. During the school year we offer both full time care (6:30am-6:30pm) and part time (9am-2pm) for preschool students. The summer program is now full time only.
Our preschool classrooms utilize nationally recognized curriculums (ATI, Funshine Express, Alpha Omega Horizons, etc.). The children also have open gym playtime, music and movement, Spanish, baby sign language, computer lab, and much more. On top of that, the children also have opportunities for skills classes in gymnastics, swimming, karate, dance, and soccer. All of this is done during their normal school day, so you have evenings free with your family.
In 2011 we began our Junior Kindergarten program, which has become very popular as an advanced pre-kindergarten classroom. Junior Kindergarten hours for 2013-2014 will be 8:30am-2:30pm, and due to an increased demand for that program, an assessment of your child's academic skills and classroom behavior is required to enroll in that classroom. Junior Kindergarten operates during the regular school year only. During the summer months, junior kindergarten students are blended with the other pre-kindergarten children.
We believe that children need a strong foundation and lots of individual attention during their early childhood years. For this reason we maintain the lowest child to teacher ratios in the area, and allow for plenty of one-on-one time with our teachers. Every child should be cared for and valued, and we want your child to feel at home with us.
Our afterschool students come to us from numerous schools in both Clear Creek ISD and Friendswood ISD. We currently have 4 buses and 2 vans driven by experienced and responsible drivers, serving 12 different schools. Please call for our most current list of schools we are serving. Upon arriving at our facility, the students have a snack, supervised homework time, opportunities for skills classes in gymnastics, tumbling, trampoline and swimming, xbox, wii, ping pong, air hockey, computers, and much more. So all of the things they need to get done afterschool are completed before you pick them up, leaving your evenings and weekends free to spend as a family.
We believe that older children need to have opportunities to be active during the afterschool hours. They have had a busy and tiring day at school, and we want our facility to be a safe and welcoming environment for them. We also believe that children do best among other children their same age, so we keep our afterschoolers separated by grade level as much as possible.
We know it's hard to let go of your child. Sending them to someone else's care for the first time can be exciting and scary all at once. By enrolling your child in AcroKids, you know they are getting a high quality, loving early childhood experience while still allowing them the freedom to have physical activity. You will see quickly that when you pick your child up each day from our program that they have had ALL of their academic, physical, social and emotional needs met and are ready to relax and enjoy family time together. Don't you wish AcroKids Academy was around when you were a child?
If you'd like more information, or to set up a time for a tour, please email or call the front office to speak with Amy. We do have very limited space still available for this school year if you have an immediate childcare need and would like more information about starting your child in our program now. In that case, you would be eligible to go ahead and register now for both summer and next school year as well.
