About us
What is M.A.R.S?

MARS is an Early Learning Academy that takes an approach to learning and development which incorporates areas of Mathematics, Arts, Reading (Literacy), and Science/Social Studies. Play is a fun and important part of children’s learning and development. Through our MARS activities children will:

• Ask questions, explore, and build skills and theories about their world

• Utilize problem solving skills individually and work with others to solve problems.

• Think creatively and critically to develop their imagination.

• Engage in what they are learning at their own pace.

Our mission: Is to provide a creative way to provide family engagement and work with children from 6 weeks through 5 years who will be entering the traditional education system. This early learning model is designed to address the educational needs for all students with a specialized emphasis towards students of color and students living in poverty. The enhancement model provides learning environments that foster pride in and knowledge about their culture, contributions and competence throughout history and the world for children.

Our Philosophy: We, at MARS Early Learning Academy are dedicated and committed to your children by providing exceptional education. It is our philosophy to focus on the needs of the individual child by providing a stimulating atmosphere for learning along with a secure loving environment. It is our belief that a school should be an extension of each child's family. Our teachers and parents are encouraged to work together to provide the love and support needed as your child reaches developmental milestones and his/her own personal achievements! We are passionate about education and providing our children with the tools to be successful in life.

Our Core Values:

- Caring: Children in our care are nurtured, encouraged and treated with compassion.

- Community: Our families share, build relationships and contribute to our Academy and our local community.

- Quality: Our educators aim to build genuine connections with children, families, and community

All staff undergo a rigorous screening to make sure they are capable and qualified to teach your child.
