Programs

Research-based, age-appropriate programs

Our programs take children on engaging adventures around the world while they are taught developmentally appropriate skills. Imagine Me Academy curriculum is based on states’ learning standards and early childhood best practices, and incorporates research, theory, and play-based approaches to learning. Children are also provided with free time to engage in self-directed experiences throughout the day. We focus on the early learning domains of physical, social/emotional, language, and cognitive development—all taught through a global lens. We support the needs of your child based on age and stage of development:

Infants

Our infant program provides a high level of personalized care. Each child has a dedicated crib with a daily schedule for eating, sleeping, and play that aligns with their home schedule. While napping, our teachers conduct safe sleep checks every 15 minutes. Our teachers also encourage and foster communication through the use of sign language and verbal cues.

Toddlers

Our toddlers program offers a more structured day compared to infants, helping to build healthy routines for children. Dedicated meal, nap, and play times are combined with outdoor activities, music, language enrichment, and other teacher-led activities. Children are also given free choice play that encourages interacting with other children.
