“Welcome to Penguin Crossing Academy! Our philosophy is to provide a safe, loving and nurturing atmosphere for our children. We strive to create experiences for our children that are fun, creative and educational, while encouraging their creative energy and developing their social skills. We’ve created a solid foundation to facilitate this environment by working with teachers that fundamentally love children and want to be a part of their growth and development. Our curriculum is play and interest-based which enhances learning. Finally, we believe that everyone is family. At Penguin Crossing Academy, we value the relationships we build with our children and parents more than anything – and that means they quickly become a part of ours!”
