We believe that play, exploration, and discovery are the work of children.

Therefore, learning can best take place during play-based inquiries

that are engaging and age appropriate.

Clayton-Bradley Academy offers quality, early childhood curriculum for children ages 3 through Pre-K. This inclusive curriculum teaches and facilitates the development of independent and interactive play-based skills, inquiries, and problem-solving that prepare students for future programs and learning. Along with encouraging the child’s own thinking, our preschool curriculum is an effective means for creating positive character education and classroom culture. Housed on the Clayton Bradley Academy campus, our preschool students are surrounded by a safe, positive, and loving environment.

Along with our attentive educators, parents play an important part in the preschool program and will be involved in the program through consistent communication from our preschool instructors. We strongly believe that the combined, harmonious work of instructors and parents help instill the life skills crucial for developing successful future kindergartners.

Preschool curriculum will follow the Highly Effective Teaching Model which provides Body/Brain-Compatible Elements and Conceptual Curriculum embedded with state standards.
