About Growing Seeds Learning Academy and The Creative Curriculum®
As passionate early childhood educators, Growing Seeds Learning Academy believes our first commitment is to children—to helping them succeed in school and in life.
We partner with you and your children to provide the support and skills needed to succeed, every step of the way.
Our academy is one of only 3 in the area certified in The Creative Curriculum®. The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool is a research-based curriculum that features exploration and discovery as a comprehensive way of learning.
Our mission focuses on valuing and responding to a child’s unique developmental and individual needs. We believe that this leads to respectful and responsive caregiving. Meeting all the needs of our students communicates to them that they are important, their needs will be met, and their choices, interests, and preferences are respected. Providing effective teaching and care honors a child’s abilities, skills, needs, and preferences which leads to ultimate success. As a team, we create fun learning activities and a nurturing environment so that our students enjoy learning and engage with their peers. Our dedicated team has a passion for providing a high quality program that is designed to meet the needs of every child and their families. We strongly believe that the best investments we can make in a child’s life is high-quality early education!

Children at this stage learn through play and are increasingly independent, so the classroom is set-up with various learning centers such as the Science Center, Math Center, Writing Center, and Dramatic Play area. Parents are fully aware of their child’s academic progress through quarterly assessment tools and parent-teacher meetings.
Growing Tulips 4 & 5 Year Olds
Our Pre-K & Kindergarten curriculum introduces several learning concepts such as literacy, math, and critical thinking skills. Vocabulary development is very important at this stage too, as children will begin to learn the art of writing. The classrooms are organized into centers such as reading, science, math, and writing.

Parents are fully aware of their child’s academic progress through quarterly assessment tools and parent-
