Colonial Children's Academy
Colonial Children’s Academy’s curriculum will feature STEM activities, outdoor and indoor recreation, music, literacy and cooperative play all within the children’s daily schedule. The emergent curriculum will be developed from the children’s imagination, interests and skill levels.
Minuteman’s High School setting allows the preschool students to explore many of the school’s career and technical education programs and use facilities such as a large indoor gym. Student-to-teacher ratios far exceed the state standards allowing adults to provide additional guidance and support throughout the day. Colonial Children’s Academy will follow Minuteman High School’s school year calendar. It will be open five days a week, Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am-4:00 pm. It will serve children between 2.9 years of age and 5 years of age.
The program offers discounted prices for in-district families and staff members of the Lexington Public Schools and Minuteman High School.
The Early Education and Teaching staff are highly qualified certified teachers in both Preschool and Early Education and Care (grades 9 12). In addition to working with the High School interns they are veterans in a preschool setting. Throughout the day they offer guidance, supervision and activities to the preschool students while serving as role models for the high school interns.
