 STEP Academy is a unique and innovative approach to learning for preschool aged children from 8 weeks-5 years of age. We are a New York State licensed facility offering full day and mini day academic programs, as well as, morning and afternoon care. At STEP Academy we believe that early childhood education is the foundation for a lifetime of learning. We strive to offer a developmentally appropriate education program that meets the needs of the “whole child”. STEP Academy provides a learning environment that fosters not only academic, social, and language skills and development but physical development as well by the inclusion of sports into our program which gives our students the unique experience of  not only learning academic skills but also engage in recreational sports clinics.

A national study conducted in 2006 analyzed data collected from 11,957 children across the U.S. to examine the relationship between physical activity and academic performance. Children who reported either participating in school activities, such as PE and team sports, or playing sports with their parents, were 20 percent more likely than their sedentary peers to earn an “A” in math or English. With the use of the Creative Curriculum in our classrooms, our students are provided with hands on play and learning experiences that integrate literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and sports while also achieving Common Core standards. By using an inquiry based/problem solving approach to learning we are able to teach each child by focusing on individual learning styles, strengths, and interests.
