We Love Our Early Childhood Academy Families! Here’s How We Show Our Love

Early Childhood

We love our Belle Plaine, New Prague, and Red Wing Early Childhood Academy families! We appreciate every family who trusts us to provide safe, loving, and educational care for their children. The best way we can repay your trust is to provide an excellent, compassionate, consistent, and fun early learning experience for your little ones. Here’s how we show our love at Early Childhood Academy.

Developmentally Appropriate Curricula

Whether your child is 6 weeks old or 6 years old, Early Childhood Academy implements a developmentally and age-appropriate curriculum backed by extensive research and early education best practices. Our early childhood curricula focus on building relationships, developing physical skills, and other skills that align with developmental milestones. Our curricula facilitate the development of the whole child with hands-on, creative activities that allow your child to learn and explore.

What does this look like in action? In our infant classroom, we focus on forming secure attachments, clapping and laughing, using sign language, enjoying stories, and joyful playing. Our toddlers practice self-help skills, sing and dance, learn with all five senses, master potty training, and explore the world around them.

In our preschool and pre-Kindergarten classrooms, our award-winning curriculum focuses on building the skills your child will need in Kindergarten, including writing their name, following directions, dressing independently, and learning their letters, shapes, and numbers.  

Inclusive Vision

At Early Childhood Academy, we work in partnership with our families to ensure every child is supported. Our leadership team and faculty recognize that we are influential role models in your child’s life. That’s why we strive to welcome, love, educate, and have fun with them daily. We believe that childcare builds a child for a lifetime, so we work hard to ensure the environment at each of our Academies is positive, consistent, and welcoming to each child.

Professional Staff of Early Childhood Academy

Our highly experienced, fully qualified team members are trained to deliver an elite education. Our teachers and classroom assistants observe, mentor, and guide your child to master skills and reach their potential. Teachers use an app to help them manage their classrooms and keep you informed with photos, videos, and other updates throughout the day.

Our leadership team is highly experienced in early childhood and school-age education. Our president Stephanie Mahal has more than 17 years of experience working with young children and families, including 12 years in public schools leading student support services such as screening, evaluations, transition planning, therapeutic interventions, and school readiness.

“As a parent, I know firsthand how important it is for parents to be a part of a supportive community,” Stephanie explains. “It is my distinct honor to have the opportunity to serve you and your child.” 

We love our ECA families, which is why we’re committed to providing high-quality early childhood education to every child in our care. The entire ECA team looks forward to serving your family now and into the future. For more information on our centers, please get in touch with us to schedule a tour.
