Academy Preschool Admissions
Peekadoodle Academy is a licensed preschool program open to children 27 months – 5 years of age, and runs from September through June. Our program is unique in that we offer a flexible part-time or full-time schedule for your child, depending on your family’s needs. We offer extended day options including a 1:00, 4:30, or 6:00 pick-up time, with the option to mix and match days of the week. We accept applications year round. Application submissions are strongly encouraged by January 31st.
Our balanced approach curriculum fosters independent and creative thinking through a balance of both guided exploration and learning through play. The Academy centers its curriculum on the whole child through cognitive, social/emotional, and physical development to best prepare each child for kindergarten and for a lifetime of learning. Peekadoodle Academy provides one-on-one support and guidance for your family through the kindergarten application process. Here is the list of which schools our Peekadoodle graduates of 2017 will be going on to for kindergarten.
