We have an affinity for children, an affinity for families and have created an environment that expresses this. Although we are not a montesorri, we employ montesorri methods combined with an eclectic selection of researched traditional & contemporary, local & international techniques that best serve our " teach the way they learn" approach. As much as our program strives to build a childs academic confidence, building their character, individual talents and moral foundation is just as imperative. Our program and assessment methods deviate from "standardized assessing and mass group teaching" so that we can effectively implement our " do not judge a fish by it's ability to climb a tree" premise!
We have an open house house policy for parents' peace of mind. This means that you, as the parent, are welcome to stop by any time unannounced and check up on your child. We encourage parent communication and provide regular feedback, pictures and updates to make sure you don't miss any part of your child's development and progress.
Affinity Academy encourages natural and healthy well rounded development by skill stimulation, coaxing and facilitation of extra mural activities that promote the development of cognitive, sensory, gross & fine motor skills, speech & language development and social & emotional awareness.
Feedback from parents is invaluable to us and we encourage your engagement in assisting us to make your child's time with us an adventure!
