8-Weeks to Three-Years-Old

Our goal at The First Academy Preschool is to provide a safe, loving environment for our littlest Royals to grow developmentally, socially, and spiritually. Our play-based, child-centered program creates connection and community during these early formative years. We promote curiosity and creativity while partnering with parents on developmental milestones. At The First Academy Preschool, your child will be known, loved, and prayed for every day. Preschool families may apply to continue their school journey at The First Academy where their children will be immersed in a Christ-centered, college preparatory experience, from 4-Years-Old through graduation.

Preschool Programs

Parents have the flexibility to choose a program that is not only right for their child’s needs but also works best for their family’s schedule. Children in both our 3-day and 5-day programs enjoy opportunities to learn, grow, rest, and play throughout the day. The program type of Infant, Toddler, K-Prep 2, and K-Prep 3 is determined by the child’s age and birthday in relation to September 1st of the upcoming school year.

3-Day Program (Tu/W/Th)
Our 3-day program is available for Toddlers and K-Prep 2’s & 3’s

5-Day Program (M–F)
Our 5-day program is available for Infants, Toddlers, and K-Prep 2’s & 3’s.

Meet a Teacher

“It takes a big heart to shape little minds. I’ve been at TFA for five years. It’s been an absolute joy seeing smiling faces of three-year-olds that are so happy and ready to learn. One of the best areas of impact in the classroom is how we model and encourage biblical traits, such as showing kindness towards others with words and actions. There is a big emphasis in K-Prep on helping the children learn how to interact with one another socially and treating each other like Jesus would treat them — it’s something we are always modeling and teaching. TFA rocks!”
