Guided by loving and talented experts in early childhood education, Villa Academy’s Preschool students learn through inquiry-based, purposeful play. Our youngest learners are encouraged to wonder often, ask multiple questions, work through complex problems, iterate to find solutions, and collaborate with classmates to joyfully discover and deepen their learning.
The amazing teachers, who truly know my child, the hands-on learning with academics woven throughout the entire day, and the intentional focus on the social-emotional development of each child has given my son a solid start to his educational journey. As a parent I am forever grateful.preschool parent
Curiosity & Joy
Curiosity, engagement, and joy are hallmarks of Villa’s Preschool, as students build numeracy skills, lay the foundations for understanding letter and sound correspondence, and learn to name their feelings, navigate social situations, and create a classroom community together. Intentionally designed learning spaces provide rich opportunities for students to create, investigate, design, and think critically. Following these thoughtful, foundational years, our Preschool students are more than ready to don their Villa Academy uniforms and thrive in Kindergarten and beyond.
At Villa Academy, we are growing confident young minds with strong moral character who are prepared to make a difference. Our inquiry-based approach to education balances theory with experience, pairing student-centered academic excellence and whole child wellness with our values of growth, justice, and student agency.
