The Upper Saddle River Children's Academy is committed to continuous individualized education for each child in order to reach his or her full potential socially, emotionally, and cognitively while entrusted in our learning environment. We provide developmentally appropriate programs that focus on the process of learning and help children enjoy successful experiences.Classrooms are arranged to offer challenging play and learning choices at a wide range of development levels. Learning centers allow children the opportunity to explore, problem solve, investigate, work together as a team, and meet with success. Children will be exposed to whole group work, small groups, and individual instruction each day.
Our thematic-based curriculum focuses on reading, writing, language, math, science, social studies, art, music, and physical fitness activities. Teachers and assistants will spend time listening to and talking with children, and helping children reflect on their daily learning. The positive interactions between teachers and students encourage the development of emotional, linguistic, and social skills, leading to a strong sense of self-esteem.
