At Munchkin Academy, we use our own theme-based curriculum, which follows the Kansas Early Learning Standards as well as adopts principles from the Montessori philosophy, while integrating the accredited curriculum that is currently used in local school districts for social-emotional development (Second Step).
All activities are designed to adequately nurture the emotional and intellectual growth of our kids. Through stimulating activities and hands-on learning opportunities, young children are free to develop into bright young minds. While academics are important, it is proven through years of research that children at this age learn best through play. Because of this, we keep direct instruction short each day, leaving the rest of the day to developmentally appropriate centers and structured play! Activities in centers are switched bi-weekly to accommodate the current theme. At Munchkin Academy we have the following centers:
Science & Math
We accept children ages 3 - 5 years old. All children must be up-to-date on their immunizations in order to attend.
