Welcome to The Academy

COLUMBIA’S PREMIER PRESCHOOL FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD LEARNING

Structured Curriculum

More than a daycare. Every baby and child learns from a structured curriculum that develops life skills and prepares them for kindergarten and beyond.

Safe Environment

Key coded doors, camera system throughout, emergency disaster plans, and allergy action plans create a safe environment for your child.

Family Involvement

Performances, events, various feasts, and an open class policy provide ample opportunity to get involved with your child’s learning.

The Executive Director oversees the business operations while each site has an appointed Director that oversees day to day operations.

The Nutcracker

17th Annual Production
We take great pride in the work and care that is taken in preparing and performing this classic holiday program. All of our classes ranging from six weeks of age through twelve years of age are integral in making “The Nutcracker” a very special and unique production. The proceeds are donated to Pascale’s Pals, a local organization that supplies both necessary goods and fun gifts for the University of Missouri Children’s Hospital and its patients. Our teachers and students make “The Nutcracker” an enjoyable family event that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
