Our program is consistent, built upon scientific research, and modeled around internationally acclaimed and accepted teaching tools. Young children have a voracious appetite for learning. While no two children develop exactly the same way, there are specific periods where certain milestones are likely to be reached. The first five years of your child’s life are extremely important to your child’s development. This period is critical to their growth and well-being.

Tammy Tan | Program Supervisor
Hello! I’m a mother of three young children. I used to be a graphic designer and after having my own child, I started to study ECE at Sprott Shaw College. Through my studies, I have gained a better understanding of the growth of children and it made me realize that every child is unique.

In my spare time, I like creating artwork with my children. I believe creating art expands a child’s ability to interact with the world around them and provides a new set of skills for self-expression and communication.

I have had a lifelong desire to work with children, especially children with special needs. I’m very happy to be a part of Academics Prekindergarten family. It is my goal to create a quality daycare for everyone and serve our community.
