Gayla Pugh is a local artist that came in to talk to the children about colors. She taught them how the three primary colors can be mixed to make all the secondary colors. They had a blast helping her mix the colors, and painting a beautiful picture.

Learning through play is the fundamental to our children's education, helping them to develop the necessary skills in life. Puppets can stimulate children's imagination, encourage creative play and discovery and are a wonderful interactive way to introduce narrative to a child. It can be a powerful way to of bringing a story to life. Our infants show how fun it can be to bring stories to life.

Children do well when they have very clearly defined instructions and practice. Rehearse, rehearse, and rehearse. Talking about what to do is helpful, but nothing will ingrain it in your child's head like actually doing it. Practicing how to react is the single most effective way to ensure your child will react safely if ever confronted with danger.

We have lots of exciting stuff going on this month at The Academy! We are learning about opposites: ups and downs, over and unders, big and littles, along with so much more. Our kiddos will be learning about opposites in different ways all month long. Fitness Fanatics will also be going on this month. Take a look at our January calendar to see what's hop-pening!
As a Gold Sneaker facility, we want our Academy kids to be getting proper nutrition. Check out what's on the menu at AOHV.

We had so much fun with Santa! He listened to all our lists and knew us all! Our Pre-K 1 class had a program. Very many parents and grand parents came to watch them. They sang a few songs and were so sweet. The children are really excited and raring to go.
