At Archway Academy we pride ourselves on a low student to teacher ratio which allows our teachers to provide your child with the highest level of education.

Our whole body approach to learning incorporates the South Carolina Good Start, Grow Smart Early Learning Standards and the five areas of child development:

  • Physical health, well-being and movement skills
  • Social and emotional development
  • Approcahes to learning
  • Thinking abilities and general knowledge
  • Communication, language, and literacy

Our Teachers are guided by the Creative Curriculum. The Creative Curriculum is a research based and proven educational program which supports active learning and promotes children’s progress in all areas of development. The Creative Curriculum believes that children learn best by doing, which is why it sets children up to learn through activities, play, and classroom interactions. Your child’s team of educators will establish a theme for each week. They will incorporate this theme into small group activities, large group activities, outdoor play, and the 10 interest areas in the classroom.

  • Building Blocks
  • Dramatic Play
  • Toys and Games
  • Art
  • Library
  • Science and Discovery
  • Sand and Water
  • Music and Movement
  • Cooking
  • Computers

Each interest area is strategically set up to follow the week’s theme and learning objectives, as well as the interests of the class. This means that while your child is playing and interacting with friends, they are also learning!
