Curriculum

Minnieland Academy's educational program is focused on individualized learning objectives for each child that we serve. We provide a variety of options for learning, not only based on the age of the child, but also his or her prior learning, maturity, and academic stage.   Our Kid Steps Curriculum provides a clear pathway to school readiness. It incorporates developmentally appropriate methods that meet the learning needs of each child in our well-equipped classrooms and playgrounds. Primary care is the core of our infant and toddler program. Language development and literacy skills form the basis of our preschool programs. Readers and writers are developed in our Junior Kindergarten, Montessori, and Preschool Readiness Enrichment Program (PREP). STEM education is at the core of our Kindergarten program.

Health and Safety

Food Provided
SERVING DELICIOUS AND NUTRITIOUS MEALS ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF OUR DAY. - We serve a hot, homemade breakfast and lunch daily. - The afternoon snack is served after naptime for our younger children. - School-age children are served breakfast before school and a snack after school. - A high nutritional standard is used for all the food prepared. - Milk, fruits, sources of protein (meat, fish or cheese), and vegetables are components of each daily menu. - Our meals and snacks meet the nutritional standards of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Child Care Food Program. - Meals at Minnieland are served “family style” as servings are delivered to each table and children spoon out their individual portions, pour their own beverage and pass the  food to each other. - Children assist with setting the table and clearing the table at the end of the meal. - Teachers sit and eat with the students and encourage table conversation. - This style of dining teaches good manners, decision-making, and learning to serve others.
Medication Administration
- All staff members who dispense medication must complete a medication administration course, taught by a registered nurse who is Commonwealth-certified in medication administration training. - We have strict policies for administering medication to your child to ensure they are protected. - We require a doctor’s note for any medication. - Medications are stored securely out of the reach of children.
