Emmy’s Academy

 

Emmy’s Academy is an early intervention childcare center providing an early learning environment with low student to teacher ratios. We accept all children regardless of diagnosis or special circumstances ages 6 weeks through 6 years old. We offer a tailored experience where all children have access to work on their therapy goals throughout their day.

What’s different about Emmy’s Academy

Enrollment & Parent Information

  • What is a PLAY™?

    PLAY™ is Emmy’s Academy’s personalized developmental
    care plan: a PLAn for You. PLAYs™ are designed to encompass the
    child’s developmental landscape by incorporating therapy, learning,
    and socializing into their own playful environment. Their PLAY™
    will be adjusted as accomplishments occur, skills emerge or if a child
    happens to regress.




  • A New Way to Communicate!

    Transparent lines of communication between Emmy’s Academy Care
    Team members are of the utmost importance for the development of
    each child under our special care. Each child has their own password
    protected and confidential parent portal, where all Care Team
    members can share information about the child’s education, goals,
    daily activities, and plan of treatment.

    We utilize the HiMama App to keep in constant communication. Parents have access to real-time information and a daily summary report emailed at the end of the day.

  • Much More Than Childcare

    All children at Emmy’s Academy will receive a developmentally
    appropriate, inclusive preschool education with a curriculum
    focused on addressing the four developmental domains (physical,
    emotional, social and cognitive), giving them a solid foundation to
    succeed later in their elementary school years.

    Our full-time, Special Education Teacher, Glenda Mateo, creates customized lessons based on the Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards. Glenda has been with Emmy’s Academy since we opened last summer (2017) and has over 30 years of experience with teaching children with special needs.


  • The Importance of Inclusion

    Creating an inclusive environment allows children of all abilities to have access to the same education, fosters understanding, teaches acceptance, and helps each student maximize their potential by providing a more authentic
    educational experience.

    Emmy’s Academy serves all children: typical and with special needs. We believe that every child
    is unique, even if they have the same diagnosis or none at all. Our highly-trained staff and
    Special Education team has experience caring for over 70 different diagnoses.

    Our current ratio is 93% children with special needs and 7% typical developing children.
