Part-time enrollment may be limited or restricted at any time based on demand for full-time.

Children are born ready to learn. At AIM Academy, we recognize the relationships they form with their teachers and caregivers are critical to their development. Our teachers are highly focused on developing secure, trusting, and predictable relationships with your child. We understand these relationships form the foundation for your child’s learning and development.
In Early School, your child’s day is designed to meet their specific needs. Our teachers facilitate personal care routines throughout the day including meals, naps, and diapering or potty training. As your child progresses to the older classrooms, these routines become more structured, but remain consistent and predictable. Our classrooms and outdoor play areas are highly specialized and specifically designed to accommodate the needs of infants, toddlers, and two-year-olds.
As children in Early School are developing rapidly, our teacher-led activities are specifically tailored to each child’s stage of development and include weekly activities in the following four domains:
- Language and Literacy
- Physical Development
- Music and Movement
During their first 12 to 18 months, infants learn and grow quickly. Quality relationships are critical during this time. Our teachers use Learning Beyond to play and engage with your infant through warm, nurturing, and attentive experiences that support exploration and provide choices. By focusing on both nonverbal and verbal cues, our teachers will ensure your child is comfortable and their needs are met. Throughout the day, our teachers narrate their own actions and the actions of other children in their class. During transitions, our teachers actively communicate their intentions in positive and warm tones. Through these experiences, your child is constantly exposed to descriptive and complex language to support their early language development.
