Our staff is committed to offering quality child care services for our community and as a testament to our dedication, we were awarded in 2012 by Who's Who in America for nearly 20 years of reliable service.

Our Mission Statement
Advanced Learning Academy’s vision is to support our families and students through following development and educational best practices. Our mission is to foster the development of the whole child through social, emotional, physical, cognitive and creative venues. This is ascertained through the development of a strict and well-focused curriculum.
At Advanced Learning Academy, we believe it is important to have structured guidelines with enough freedom to allow our children to explore and develop as individuals. Families who believe and support their approach to learning and socialization will grow and thrive in their years while at Advanced Learning Academy.
