Micah Children's Academy 

At the Academy, our expert teachers stay true to our most important belief statement: “We are accountable to children.” To this end, we have designed a program that is responsive to the true needs of young children: love, security, strong Jewish values, and a need to play and learn. We take advantage of their sense of curiosity, their love of learning, and their never-ending source of energy. Our natural playscape is one example how we provide a venue for learning, exploring, and growing.   At the heart of our program is a project-based curriculum that provides the building blocks for success in literacy, math, science and the arts.
