The mission of Prime Years Academy is to provide a quality, nurturing, and stimulating Islamic environment for the “whole child” in the areas of physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual development and to lay the foundation for a life-long love of learning.
The philosophy of Prime Years Academy is based on the following principles:
We believe that the early years are the “Prime Years” of learning. Research states that while learning continues throughout the life cycle, the early years are the prime years for optimal development. During this period, brain cells make connections that lay the foundation for all future learning.
We believe that each child is a unique individual and that children grow physically,
intellectually, emotionally, socially, and spiritually at their own optimal rate. Our program
provides a variety of developmentally appropriate and culturally diverse activities to support the process of learning and to help children feel successful in all areas of their
We believe that play is the most positive way for children to learn.Through play, children explore, experiment, and acquire new skills. It is a natural process through which a child discovers, develops, and builds upon an understanding of the world.
We believe that children are natural imitators. Islamic values, at this tender age, are best acquired through modeling as well as instruction. Our teachers and staff model Islamic character and behavior in their everyday dealing with the children.
We believe that families are the most important people in a child’s life. Our program seeks to establish a respectful, culturally responsive partnership between teachers and families for the optimum benefits to the child.
We believe that caring adults play a key role in the lives of young childre. Through affectionate interactions, our staff build relationships of trust and love with young children and provide them with a warm and nurturing environment away from home.
