Every day, our goal is to find the perfect balance between play & academics. That's why we...
Hire experienced and mature teachers.
Place each child in a small group with one teacher in her own room.
Give each child tons of individual attention.
Use a proven curriculum for learning reading, writing and math.
Teach Spanish to all children every morning.
Our program is perfect for working families.
During the school year, we teach children from 1 to 5 years old.
During the summer, we teach children up to 7 years old (entering 2nd grade).
We are open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. year-round.
Morning classes are from 8:30 to 12:15. Children may arrive at 7 for no extra charge.
Afternoon classes are from 1 to 3:30. Children may stay until 4:30 for no extra charge.
We have been in business since 1995, and we love what we do!
Alpine Academy is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
We have been NAEYC accredited for many years, and we recently passed our re-accreditation. After reviewing oodles of documents and photos, and after making several unannounced visits, the NAEYC accredits only those schools that meet its very high standards, including:
Mrs. Lauricella: "My favorite thing about Alpine is how comfortable my child feels there. I always know she is safe, cared for, and learning in some way. I love that other teachers who are not her teacher take the time to get to know her and myself and always greet us warmly. I love the creativity of the curriculum and learning exercises."
Mrs. Ellsworth: "My husband and I (and of course our son) love Ms. Veronica. We are amazed by all our son has accomplished since being in her room. He's become such an independent little boy! He's been doing some sign language at home, has started to clean up after himself, and is attempting to walk down the stairs without any help. She is so incredibly dedicated to him, and we can see how much he loves and adores her. She takes the time to send us messages asking us how he's doing, and she gives us suggestions when she feels he's ready for new foods or activities. She has blessed us with so many adorable pictures and videos documenting so many cute moments we don't get to see while at work. Thank you!"
Private Tours Call ahead to plan a time that works for you. We will visit the classrooms, watch the children in action, and chat with the teachers
