A Loving Environment for Your Children to Learn and Grow

Our philosophy is implemented through indoor and outdoor activities, active and quiet play. Different materials are experimented with, encouraging self-exploration and discovery. Art, science, dramatic play, story time, music, and movement are all important. Friendships and cooperative play are encouraged through the sharing of ideas, books, and toys that generate concern for others.

About Us

At Akamai Kids Club Preschool, children enjoy a loving environment that fosters positive feelings of self-worth and respect. Social, physical, intellectual development, and a sense of independence are gained through opportunities to make decisions and problem solve. While limits are clear, a great deal of emphasis is placed on role modeling, thus teaching tools for conflict resolution. The ability to have a friend, be a friend, and manage in the group setting is highly valued, as is a stimulating environment which provides opportunities for children to interact with each other and learn more about themselves.

Child Safety

We have taken comprehensive steps to continually ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our student members. Keeping our student learning center safe allows children to look forward to being in an encouraging environment that promotes academic, social and creative learning.


We provide sufficient time for children to explore, learn, express and revisit a given project. Our teachers are researchers, learners and data gatherers. They will carefully observe, listen and document the children’s work and growth.

Student Acceptance

Akamai Kids Club shall not discriminate in the delivery of student services on the basis of race, religion, and gender or national/ethnic origin. Families must remain current with all financial obligations in order to continue to receive education services at Akamai Kids Club, Inc.

We recognize the importance of trust and respect in fostering a positive learning atmosphere. Here, we value and embrace each child's individuality, allowing them the freedom to develop at their own pace.

Our approach emphasizes empowerment, focusing on equipping children with essential skills for lifelong learning. We aim to cultivate self-motivated learners who are eager to explore and discover new knowledge. By fostering a love for learning, we encourage children to become passionate about their education, laying a strong foundation for their future academic endeavors. Moreover, we promote critical and creative thinking, nurturing their problem-solving abilities and encouraging innovative approaches to challenges.

Responsibility is a core value that we instill in our students. We believe in empowering children to become compassionate members of their community. Through our guidance and support, children learn the importance of respect, both for others and themselves. We encourage them to embrace peace and harmony, promoting a culture of empathy and understanding. By cultivating a sense of responsibility, we empower children to make positive contributions to their community and become active participants in creating a better world.

Holistic growth is at the heart of our educational philosophy. We recognize that education goes beyond academics. Our holistic approach aims to nurture healthy bodies, minds, and spirits. We provide opportunities for physical activities that promote overall well-being and instill healthy habits. Additionally, we foster emotional and social development, creating a supportive environment where children feel valued, understood, and encouraged. We believe in nurturing the whole child, ensuring their growth and development on multiple levels.
