Our Program


Beaches Academy has offered high-quality, loving, safe care for beach families for over 30 years. The school’s accreditation demonstrates the goal that everything in our program has been designed to enhance learning.

Our stable, long-term staff helps each child learn through play with hands-on activities in a protective, happy environment. Each child is valued for who they are and who they are learning to be. Teachers always consider “What’s best for the Child” when implementing our program.

Our preschool program is offered every day from 9 am-12 pm for children ages 1-3. The state funded, Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program runs for 4-year-olds from 9am-12pm. Beaches Academy's planned curriculums are age-appropriate, pre-kindergarten readiness programs. Children are given ongoing assessments for developmental skills throughout the year. Character development is a central part of the curriculum. The afternoon program consists of inside and outside play times, which are more fluid than the structured morning program. In the afternoons, the school-age children also enjoy an outside play time or they may work on homework or reading. This allows our parents to spend more quality time at home with their children.

Our summer program consists of an enrichment program for 3 and 4-year-olds. We plan numerous activities to supplement summer fun, including bowling, trips to the beach and park, arts and crafts, etc.

We offer a full-day summer activity program for children who will enter kindergarten in the fall through 12-year-olds. Our program is fun-filled, educational and developmentally appropriate.

Beaches Academy maintains lower ratios of teacher to child than required by the Department of Children and Families Licensing Agency. The Florida Gold Seal Accrediting Standards promote higher quality, thus lower ratios in our center.
