English Creek Academy & Early Years
Child Care / Learning Centers
Owner: Laura Pappas
English Creek Academy is a leader in the childcare profession. Our purpose is to provide the highest quality childcare and preschool education in a secure, nurturing, and stimulating environment. Our most important priority is your child, and we strive to assure that all children’s experiences are educational, fun, and safe.
Children learn and develop best in a secure and loving environment. Since we are concerned with the whole child, we aim to balance development in all areas: social, emotional, physical, and intellectual. Our staff is dedicated to helping children build their skills, strengths, self-esteem and self-confidence. Our teachers understand the importance of children learning to nurture confidence. Parents are welcome in our center at anytime and are considered partners in the educational process.
Our teachers are fully certified or hold credentials in early childhood education or a related field. All teachers are required to take refresher courses and undergo routine physical examinations. All staff members are chosen for their warmth, training, experience in caring for and educating young children. Additionally, backgrounds are thoroughly investigated before employment.
Our school is among the first in the country to offer parents the opportunity to visit their children from work or home through our internet camera capabilities. We have installed 42 cameras in order to have a more complete monitoring experience for our parents and relatives. Watching your child happily involved in school activities is often a relief and an exciting experience. Relatives and friends in other states can view for fun too. Classrooms have viewing windows and security cameras. These cameras are monitored by the administrator and director throughout the day. Our center has an electronic access entry system that allows only authorized persons to enter the building. Biometric fingerprint scanning has been implemented, to add an additional layer of security, to the entrances to both of our facilities.
