Legacy Academy Chapel Hill:

    • – Is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, which sets the standard for accountability in quality for early child care and education. Legacy participates in this voluntary program to give parents added assurance that our academies exceed national standards for excellence in education, safety, and overall quality of care.  Fewer than 10% of US Preschool programs receive this honor.
    • – Offers low student-teacher ratios

Our goal is to give children the opportunity to learn and grow as they become healthy, responsible, independent, and self-sufficient individuals. Legacy Academy caregivers and teachers provide children with love, joy, and encouragement. At Legacy Academy, children come first as we strive to make a difference! We are committed to providing a positive, nurturing, and enriched learning environment and experiences that will foster cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development in each child as an individual. We believe that early care and education make a positive difference in the lives of children, their families, and our community.

 

Our Legacy Academy child care curriculum

 

In addition to the standard High Scope curriculum, Legacy Academy Chapel Hill has access to a myriad of High Scope based tools and resources, such as Framework For Their Future®* designed by a team of child development and childcare experts and copyrighted for the exclusive use of Legacy Academy For Children®. This framework is grounded in current early childhood and recent brain development research.

 

*NOTE: Wherever Framework For Their Future® is referenced, it is included as a High Scope Learning Resource, in addition to the standard High Scope Curriculum which meets North Carolina 5 STAR licensing requirements, in particular for Legacy Academy Chapel Hill.

 

At Legacy Academy, our mission is to provide children with a cutting edge, enriched learning environment that encourages development. Educating and caring for children is our passion and privilege. We are honored to be trusted by thousands of parents to be such an important part of the lives of their families.

Early Childcare Brain Power icon

 

Building Brain Power

Brain research tells us that all experiences impact the architecture of the brain. At birth the human brain is in an amazingly unfinished state. The hardware is present but the connections are yet to be made. The child’s experiences , when repeated are reinforced, resulting in brain connections. This becomes the neural circuitry that lays the foundation for lifelong learning.
