Welcome to Options Academy, a place for education, growth, development and precious memories. Your children are our top priority! Helping your children develop their cognition, imagination, creativity and personality is what we strive to achieve. We place a strong emphasis on education and extra-curricular activities; however, it is of utmost importance that children feel safe, secure, and comfortable while enjoying their time at Options Academy.
Children learn best by doing and by observing others. Repetition is key for developing strong neural pathways that remain stable over a child’s lifetime. Early childhood experiences in motor abilities, sensation and perception lays a strong foundation for the development of skills such as language, reading, writing and mathematics in later years.
As a Speech Language Pathologist, I believe that effective communication is essential. Our programming focuses on all aspects of development including cognitive, sensory, motor and social abilities with a special emphasis on speech and language development. We encourage children to communicate using clear speech and endeavor to develop advanced ability to understand language and to express their thoughts, ideas, feelings and emotions.
At Options Academy, we stand by our name. We believe that children should be exposed to as many options and opportunities as possible to discover their interests and talents. We complement our educational programming with options such as art, music, sports, home economics, swimming and martial arts to name just a few. We also offer children the opportunity to expand on their learning by taking part in fun educational activities such as the Little Engineers Program.
We are undoubtedly bias, but we believe your children will excel during their time at Options Academy.
I am very happy to welcome you to our school and I look forward to working with you!
