IGNITES A CHILD'S NATURAL DESIRE TO LEARN.
LEARNING THROUGH PLAY EVERY DAY
Through play, children discover their surroundings – socially, emotionally, cognitively & physically. This is unique for each child at each stage of development. Sonnets Academy teachers celebrate diversity in their classrooms - understanding each child’s distinctive style of play and the cultural and developmental factors that contribute to these differences among children. Our teachers create classroom activities that each student can build upon in their own way – focusing on strengths.

Our Preschoolers were on a mission to find out. Like all animals, ants need ENERGY that they get from eating. After learning that insects gravitate towards sweet things because the sugars are a quick source of energy for them, our preschoolers picked out a few snacks for our ant friends to try. Will they choose the raisins, the oranges, the honey, or the goldfish?
