At Mudbug Academy, we nurture a child’s growth and development while planting the seeds of curiosity. We understand that children learn through play and as a result, our chosen curriculum has been written by a team of experienced educators that have years of experience working with young children. The program is creative, unique and based on Louisiana’s early childhood learning standards. With these age-appropriate lessons, our teachers are able to make learning come alive for our students through activities, music, movement, and dramatic play.
Mudbug Academy will meet and exceed Louisiana's Birth to Five Early Learning & Developmental Standards. As experienced early childhood educators, we have created a curriculum for our Mudbugs that meets the needs of the whole child: physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally.
Our curriculum includes:
Phonics & Reading Skills taught in this program will include letter sounds, blending letters and how to read small words and sentences.
Math Our approach relies on hands-on activities, visual experiences and discussion in order for students to have a better understanding of number sense and problem solving skills.
Everyday Counts Calendar Math This program enriches daily math instruction, reinforces core concepts, and provides immediate differentiation.
Science For preschoolers, daily life is science. We will provide hands-on contact with sensory materials, as well as opportunities to explore and discover, giving children the ability to study life around them.
Social Studies Preschool often gives children their first sense of community outside the home, while making friends and participating in decision-making in the classroom. Later moving beyond the school into the neighborhood and around the world. Other skills introduced include how money works and sequence of events.
Bible Stories Although religion is incorporated throughout the day, we will use this liturgically-based program to explore the Old and New Testament.
Enrichment P.E., Art, and Spanish will be offered to all ages.
Our vision is to make our children “STRONGER FROM THE START” by providing them with a solid, overall foundation that will help them find success in the future.
