Welcome to Blue Spring Academy, where we nurture young minds to reach for the stars!

At BSA, we understand the importance of early childhood education, and we're dedicated to providing your child with an exceptional learning experience. Our daycare isn't just a place for play; it's a dynamic environment where we've seamlessly integrated the exciting world of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) into our daily lesson plans.
Imagine your child's eyes lighting up as they embark on a journey of discovery:
Science Exploration: Through hands-on experiments and age-appropriate activities, we inspire curiosity and critical thinking in our budding scientists. From observing the wonder of nature to exploring basic physics principles, we ignite a passion for learning that lasts a lifetime.
Technology Tidbits: In our digital age, tech literacy is key. We introduce children to age-appropriate technology, fostering their creativity and problem-solving skills. From interactive learning apps to simple coding exercises, we prepare them for the digital future.
Engineering Adventures: Young engineers in the making! We encourage your child to build, construct, and design, promoting spatial awareness and fostering an appreciation for innovation. Whether it's building towers with blocks or creating simple machines, they'll love every moment of it.
Mathematical Marvels: Numbers come alive at [Daycare Name]. We make math fun through games, puzzles, and daily math challenges. Our goal is to build a strong foundation in mathematical concepts, enhancing problem-solving skills and logical thinking.
But our STEM integration isn't just about subjects; it's about instilling a growth mindset, fostering collaboration, and encouraging creativity. Our dedicated educators ensure that STEM isn't just an acronym; it's a gateway to a world of endless possibilities for your child.
Join us at Blue Spring Academy, where we're planting the seeds of curiosity, innovation, and a lifelong love for STEM. Your child's journey begins here, and the future is limitless!

Our Program
We provide quality care to children 6 weeks to 12 years old.
  • Infants
    Our infant program is designed to provide each child with a feeling of warmth, confidence, and security. The schedule is very flexible to allow the teachers to spend quality time with each child. We believe that through this nurturing interaction, along with encouragement and lots of love, the children will experience a warmth that is essential to their growth and development.
  • Younger Todlers

    12 Months to 24 Months

    The emphasis of our young toddler program will be on initial acquisition of basic self-help skills. The children will participate in open-ended activities where the process is stressed rather than the outcome. Through the use of interest areas, the children will experience dramatic play, singing, games, stories, manipulatives, and or projects along with various other activities. The children are encouraged daily in both indoor and outdoor activities with the inclusion of small and large group experiences.

  • Older Todlers

    25 Months to 36 Months

    The goal of the older toddler class is to expand language development and to promote social participation in a group setting. The children are engaged in developmentally appropriate activities both indoors and outdoors with the inclusion of small and large group experiences. Vocabulary, reading, role play, math games, artistic explorations and emerging understanding of science are the key activities throughout the day.

  • Preschool
    The emphasis of the Preschool class is to provide challenging activities designed to meet the individual needs of children during this active time of growth and development, in addition to promoting enthusiastic and receptive attitude toward school. By combining a diverse, academic program with a healthy, socially-oriented one, we strive to create a stimulating fun-filled day for the children. Within this room interest areas will also be used to engage the children in separate activities throughout the day.
  • Before/Afterschool
    Our Before School Care will include relaxing activities to help prepare your child for their transition into their classroom. Our After School Care will include a healthy snack, the start of homework, computer time, dramatic play, gross motor activities, table games, art activities, and quiet/reading areas. At the end of the day, your child will have had fun with their friends AND started their homework.
  • Summer Camp
    Summer Camp is offered to children who have completed Kindergarten through third grade. It consists of a full day program to accommodate working parent’s schedules. The CAMP is staffed with 2 counselors and can accommodate up to 15 children. There are many exciting activities planned throughout the entire summer to include a balance of interests that are educational, sports related, artistic and just plain FUN!!

Open Doors
Parents are welcome to visit and observe class at any time. We are delighted to include parents in our daily activities, utilize them as classroom volunteers or have them join us for special events. Please remember that this is YOUR early learning center. If you have any questions or concerns, please talk to us about them. A brief exchange is usually possible at drop-off or pick-up. If there is a need for longer discussion, we are happy to set up an appointment. Parent-teacher conferences are offered twice a year, but an additional conference can be scheduled at any time. Communication is the best thing for you, the best thing for us, and most importantly, the best thing for your child. A positive partnership with parents, founded on mutual trust and respect, is an essential component to our success. We rely on parent input and information to help us meet each child’s unique needs. Daily communication between teachers and parents is essential to our program.

Child Care Subsidy and Scholarships

Special Needs
We are devoted to the welfare of all children. We will make every reasonable effort to accommodate the needs of children with learning differences or disabilities.
