OUR PROGRAMS

Our Programs provide an environment where children develop the fundamental skills 



Our Programs provide an environment where children develop the fundamental skills necessary for school readiness by offering security, guidance, and encouragement. We believe children learn through active exploration and discovery of their environment, which encourages them to investigate new ideas and take educational risks. 

Curriculum

  • Nemours: BrightStart Curriculum for ages 3-5

  • Baby Doll Circle Time for Infants and Toddlers

 

Infant Program

Our Infant Care Program Features:

  • Nurturing, personal care that builds your infant's self-esteem

  • Regular teacher-child interactions that spark curiosity and socialization

  • Playtime and experiences that help boost cognitive and motor skills

  • Age-appropriate materials and equipment that support learning and development

  • Regular teacher-family communication, including daily updates to keep you informed

  • A safe childcare environment where your infant has the freedom to move and explore

  • Safe Sleep Guidelines that meet those of the American Academy of Pediatrics

 

 

Toddler Program

Orlando Early Learning Academy's toddler curriculum is based on the principle that children learn best through direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas.

 

Each day has the same basic elements:

  • Teacher-led group activity times.

  • Center-based, child-directed free play.

  • Outside play time where children use large muscles to move, climb, run and more.

  • Meal times where the class eats together like a family.

  • Nap time when children rest on individual mats.

  • Personal care activities. Children are encouraged to wash hands, diapers are changed and those ready are helped to use the toilet.

 

 

Preschool Program

In our preschool classroom, teachers and children are active partners in the learning process.  This balanced approach to interaction between adults and children - also call "intentional teaching" - is critical to our effectiveness.

Space and material are carefully arranged to promote active learning. Teachers give preschoolers a sense of control over the day by planning a consistent daily routine that enables the children to anticipate what happens next.

 

The curriculum is built around activities in these main content areas:

  • Physical development

  • Approaches to learning

  • Social and emotional development

  • Language, communication and emergent literacy

  • Cognitive development and general knowledge

 

Documentation of preschoolers' growth and development is through teacher observations and completion of a checklist, parent completion of the Ages & Stages screening forms, and a portfolio of activities that includes samples of artwork and photos.

 

Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK)

OELA participates in the Florida Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program (VPK). The FREE, state-funded program provides 540 hours (3 hours per day for the 180 days following Orange County Public Schools' Calendar) to all children who are four years old on or before September 1st. This educational program was created to prepare every four-year-old in Florida for kindergarten and build the foundation for their educational success. The VPK program offers each child an opportunity to perform better in school and throughout life by offering quality programs that include developmentally appropriate curricula with a focus on early literacy skills, accountability, manageable class size, and increased teacher credentials. 

 

The curriculum used at OELA follows the latest Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards for Four-Year-Olds. To get more information about what this program can offer your child, please give us a call.
