All Children Academics educates the whole child. We believe in the importance of exposing children to art, music, physical education, science, cooking, gardening, animal care, and mindfulness on a daily basis.
Included in your child’s day are the following programs led by our team of specialists.
Social Thinking: Our social skills experts work with students individually, as well as in designed groups, to target specific areas of social thinking. All Children Academics follows the framework and curriculum developed by Michelle Garcia Winner to improve students’ social skills abilities. Additional curriculums include The Zones of Regulation, Kimochis and Superflex.
Music: All Children Academics is delighted to offer our students the expertise of the talented music instructor Josh McIntosh. Josh works with students to develop not only musical skills but address their social and emotional development. Music sessions support students’ creativity, self-expression and self-empowerment.
Yoga & Mindfulness: Yoga is a natural way to exercise with children. It helps them relax, focus and develop body awareness and motor planning skills, while strengthening the connection between their bodies, minds and spirits. Yoga is an effective intervention for children with sensory, anxiety, and self regulation needs .
Cooking and Gardening: Cooking and gardening is a basic skill for daily living. In addition to learning a valuable life skill, children develop social skills, executive functioning, time management, while giving them a sense of accomplishment. All Children Academics grows a rich outdoor garden, which is dependent on the nurturing of our students.
Animal Care: Our school cares for many animals on our property. Most popular are our four chickens, “the ladies.” Students are responsible for feeding, cleaning, and caring for the chickens, fish, turtles, and geckos.
Physical Education: Students engage in weekly structured PE classes, in which gross motors goals, and social skills are incorporated. Student interests drive the activities, and team collaboration is a high focus.
Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy: Both services are offered on ACA’s campus for an additional fee. We work with contractors who can treat your child on sight, or you are welcome to have your therapist come onto our campus.
