About Us
Our Approach
Pride and Joy Academy has been in business since 2003. Our philosophy is simple – children come first and local and state regulations are strictly adhered to for the benefit and protection of our children and staff. We provide a safe, clean, and fun-filled educational environment for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years of age.

The early years for children are the most formative ones in a child’s development. Our Mission is to provide each child a secure and safe environment which will foster self-discovery, a love for learning and positive self-esteem. Pride and Joy Academy will help build the foundation for children that will help them to grow socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually.

Educational Programs
Pride and Joy Academy has chosen  the Creative Cirriculum Solutions program for all of our educational programs.

Creative Cirriculum has been in the early childhood market for more than 25 years. The program is dedicated to creating a high-quality, developmentally appropriate environment that allows teachers to easily facilitate a creative, hands-on learning experience for the whole child.
Pre-K and 5 year olds
Our Pre-K 4 and 5 year olds are also using the Creative Curriculum® for Preschool. It was created to keep pace with new research and give early childhood educators more of the knowledge that helps them build a program where all children thrive. And we took to heart what teachers were telling us: They wanted more choice in the classroom.
What our parents are saying
  1. Infants
    BRIGHT BABIES a High Reach Learning Curriculum This program is administered to infants as young as 6 weeks. The program allows for tremendous variation depending on the age of the child. High Reach and Pride and Joy Academy believe it is never too early to expose an infant to learning. We receive a monthly packet containing different activities for each week. Our staff designs a schedule that allows for some portion of the curriculum to be administered each day. Your child will be exposed to: - Activity Cards that provide age-specific activities for development of language, small/large motor, and social and emotional skills. - Board Books which promote Language development and provides opportunities for positive social interactions - A selected Sassy Toy which provides visual and tactile stimulation for young learners.

"My son, Jaden, now 5 1/2 years old, has been at Pride and Joy Academy almost since the school opened. The staff and owners have been great at taking care of educating and making it a fun day for Jaden. The "Caterpillar School" as we call it is always clean and full of activities and fun for the kids. Jaden often "wants me to come back and pick him up later" (which is a very good sign). Kudos to very nice, caring individuals that are there for Jaden when I can't be. Kids are the first priority at this academy. "

"Pride and Joy Academy has brought us a lot of joy because our son Chase is so happy here. The teachers and the director have provided excellent service. I am very pleased that the safety of the children is always a priority of the school. The teachers are always so nice and helpful. We are pleased with the attention to nutrition. The children are provided a well balanced lunch and snack while at Pride & Joy Academy. It is important to us that the children are eating well when not at home." — Carmen D..
