Premier Academy has partnered with Easter Seals of North Georgia to expand our program for families facing barriers to high-quality childcare and educational services. For nearly 100 years, Easter Seals has served children with disabilities and special needs through its rich educational programming, fostering learning environments that encourage children to grow and succeed. Through our partnership with Easter Seals, we strive to promote school readiness in young children of all abilities from families with incomes below the poverty guidelines. Together, we encourage children’s social and intellectual development through the integration of education, mental health services, nutrition, family enrichment and other supportive services at our two child development centers. This collaboration supports and maintains shared goals and best practices, as well as gives our children additional opportunities for success in school and life.
Premier Academy is concerned with the healthy development of the total child. Through a collaborative partnership with licensed child and family mental health providers, we offer an innovative new school-based mental health counseling program to children ages 3 to 5 years old, their siblings and parents. The CAMP program provides free, comprehensive individualized counseling services to children who are facing stressors in the home that are affecting their behavior and performance at school. Parents also receive counseling services to effectively cope with common stressors they might face and to provide an emotionally stable and nurturing home environment for their children.
The Georgia Pre-K Program is funded and governed by Bright from the Start Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning. This free statewide program serves eligible 4-year old children (birthdays on or before September 1st) and is available at local elementary schools and private childcare centers across Georgia. Our degreed teachers use the state approved Opening the World of Learning (OWL) curriculum to ensure children receive instruction that is well-aligned with the Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards (GELDS) and are prepared for a seamless transition to kindergarten possessing age-appropriate and emerging age-appropriate literacy, math and social skills.
