-Mission Statement

Time of Wonder Academy (TOW) is dedicated to providing a high quality preschool program that effectively meets the needs of children 6 weeks to five years old. It is a place where social skills are developed and positive attitudes toward learning are fostered.

At TOW we implement a 12 month curriculum for infants through Pre-K, focusing on Children’s Brain Development. This curriculum encourages each child to explore the world around them and to think creatively while using all their senses. This allows them to become involved in every facet of learning through appropriate development activities in a safe environment.

Our programs are designed to promote self-confidence, growth and optimal development. We give each child as much personal attention as possible, while at the same time promoting a sense of sharing. The teacher – child link is what makes us so successful in providing the upbringing, care and complete development necessary for the children you have entrusted in our care.

We offer Full and Part-Time programs, VPK Program as well as Summer and Aftercare programs for children up to 12 years of age.
