A Premier Daycare Learning Experience!

We believe that children experience the greatest growth when they feel secure and wanted. Therefore, We at Pat A Cake Learning Academy will provide a warm, caring, comfortable and safe environment for our children.
Together, we will establish routines that are predictable and consistent. All children will be treated with kindness, honesty and respect. We will encourage them to treat others in this manner. Our classrooms cultivate an unbiased atmosphere where children and parents are encouraged to challenge their individual paradigms and subsequently see society through a lens that celebrates diversity of thought and culture.
We are committed to children learning and believe that educators are important role models. Therefore, we use modeling as a vital tool in our classrooms. To maintain an atmosphere where children feel comfortable and confident, we use constructive guidance and positive reinforcement. We feel it is also necessary to establish and clearly define reasonable limits with logical consequences. The children are encouraged to take ownership in shaping our classroom dynamics through openly sharing their work, ideas and personalities which will enrich their peers and foster their intellectual development.
