Our Commitment to You

Welcome to Mary Bethune Academy! Our goal is to provide the highest quality child care and education possible in a safe and nurturing environment. Children from infancy through age five are offered a variety of learning experiences to prepare them for Kindergarten and beyond.

Child to staff ratios vary within each of our four classrooms and are at or below state licensing limits. Each classroom is specifically designed to serve children of a particular age range, but teachers adjust activities to meet the developmental needs of the current children enrolled. By offering interactive experiences through art, science, math and literacy, as well as encouraging good manners and social skills, we offer your children the building blocks and opportunity to do what they do best – learn, play and grow!


Our Rooms

Your child’s ability to learn is directly related to their age, which is why we structure lessons and activities appropriately in four separate classrooms, each with their own set of educational standards. Click on one of our classrooms below to learn more!
