Our Early Learning Program

Our Commitment to you

Mary Bethune Academy participated at its inception Virginia Star Quality Initiative (VSQI) program, with close links to Smart Beginnings of Central Virginia. It is our goal to provide the highest quality care and education in a safe and nurturing environment. Children from infancy on are offered variety of learning experiences to prepare them for the next developmental step and ultimately, for kindergarten. These experiences include explorations in art, science, math and literacy development as well as encouraging manners and good social skills. Our goal is to offer children the building blocks and opportunity to do what they do best, grow, play and learn!


Our Rooms

A child’s ability to learn is directly related to their age, which is why we prepare your children by their age. The education standards differ appropriately with each class room.
