Mission Statement

The mission of Wonder Joy Academy is to provide an environment where the health, safety, and well-being of each child is the top priority. The atmosphere allows children the freedom to explore, create, and dream of the things they can think of. Play and a creative curriculum bring new concepts and information into the lives of the children.

Our Classes

Our Philosophy

Wonder Joy Academy offers a diverse learning environment, which includes a variety of learning tools which will meet with each child’s individual learning style. Our classrooms offer an environment where children can explore and develop while learning all the skills each child will need to have a successful future.

Our Programs

KidReports
Daily sheets at your fingertips and interactive communication with your teachers at all times of the day!
Spanish
Wonder Joy Academy offers Spanish classes as a dual language opportunity for your children! As a child learns a second language, they are able to communicate with their peers and be a part of dual language programs school systems offer. Not only is learning a second language a good learning opportunity, but Latin based language also helps a child learn other similar languages such as French, if they desire.
Cooking
Children will learn communication, team work, and math skills as they enjoy their cooking classes every week. Children will take part in creating a meal or snack the class can share together. Cooking also teaches children about healthy food options and expands their taste buds.
Dance
While dancing seems like a fun activity for children to do, there is so much they are learning when they participate in a dance class’ such as development in their social/emotional and cognitive skills. Dance also teaches dedication to a sport and discipline while children learn about their personal space.
Facility Access
Wonder joy academy takes measures to protect the children and staff members. The center is equipped with a keypad which is used to let teachers and parents into the center. We conduct safety drills monthly to ensure the children are safe in all situations. The center has developed a relationship with a neighboring business as a safe place incase of an emergency where we cannot occupy the center.
Along with the camera’s in the classroom, each classroom has a tablet used to communicate with parents and update daily sheets. Parents information is stored online in the event we need to connect with parents. We also ask that parents help us provide a safe environment for the center and not hand out the code to get into the center. The Center Director will keep all parents updated with the new keycode every 6 months.
Live Stream Cameras
Being able to see your children during the day is a service we know is important to parents! It will give you peace of mind as you can see your child(ren) are having fun! The link will direct parents to sign up for PB&J which then needs to be approved by the Center Director.

OUR EVENTS

Parents Night Out

Parents Night Out is a way for each child to have a night without their parents. The evening is all about your child(ren) while allowing parents a few hours to do what they need to get done or have a date night.
