Kennesaw, GA Day Care Services & Preschool

INtrinsic Scholars Academy (ISA) intentionally cultivates intellectual growth by valuing our young students for their potential as well as their individuality, and striving always for their balanced physical, social-emotional, cognitive, and aesthetic development.

Infants (6 weeks – 12 months)

At INtrinsic Scholars Academy we understand that infancy is a time of rapid growth and development in every domain. In the infant classroom we provide a warm and loving environment. Infants and toddlers are cared for in a very loving and nurturing environment. Our staff focuses on each child’s individual needs and development.

The children enjoy time being cuddled, swinging in swings, playing in activity centers, and tummy time on the floor. In addition to playing in the room, the infants are often taken for walks to explore the outside world around them. As they grow, the staff assists each child as they strive to meet developmental goals and milestones in preparation for our preschool program.

  • Physical needs are taken care of promptly, following the child’s cues for individual preferences in food, rest, and social interaction.
  • While meeting the physical needs, the early educators talk, sing, and play with each infant.
  • Infants are given room to move and explore the environment in safe surroundings.
  • Teachers provide daily written communication about feeding, diapering, napping and other daily activities. We work closely with families to assure continuity of care between home and our program.

Toddlers (12 – 23 months and 2 year olds)

We recognize that toddlers are striving to be self-reliant. The toddler rooms are designed to offer a safe, secure and loving environment where the children engage in challenging, multi-sensory, and meaningful activities at their own pace.

Toddlers learn concept formation, problem solving, and social skills through exploration, observation and play. Opportunities are provided for pretending, participating in small groups and playing by themselves throughout the day.

  • Large motor experiences are provided indoors and outdoors in a safe environment.
  • Many opportunities for small motor development are offered. Toddlers explore using hands and fingers in a variety of age-appropriate activities.
  • Teachers provide daily written communication about feeding, diapering, napping and other daily activities. We work closely with families to assure continuity of care between home and our program.
  • Toddlers have opportunities to experience songs, books, finger plays, and interactive games. The children are read to individually and in small groups. Books are always accessible for independent exploration.
  • Toddlers are also introduced to the concept of colors, numbers, and weather.
  • Daily communication is provided.
  • Students develop concept formation and problem solving skills.

Preschool (3 and 4 year olds)

In the preschool classrooms, the children learn to be a cooperative part of the group. Teachers help children learn to respect others and to work as a team, fostering a sense of community within the classroom. Activities are planned to provide opportunities and experiences that incorporate large group and small group time. Curriculum content areas include math, science, literacy, technology, social studies and the arts. These are not isolated areas of learning. Instead, teachers develop projects that expand children’s skills and knowledge across disciplines, creating an integrated curriculum. Materials that support fine-motor and large-motor development are offered. Well supervised physical activity is offered through the day. Dance, exercise, games and playing on the playground equipment promotes large-motor coordination. Fine-motor dexterity is attained through learning self-help skills, experimenting with writing and mastering small manipulatives.
  • Language and literacy is developed through conversational experiences, through teachers reading books aloud during large group time and in individualized settings daily and through classroom environments rich in print.
  • Our pre-kindergarten program focuses on kindergarten readiness in a developmentally appropriate environment.
  • Community involvement is encouraged through field trips and special visitors.
  • Our prekindergarten teachers integrate Georgia Performance Standards in order to insure that our students are prepared for kindergarten.

School Age Programs

Learning takes place through a variety of hand-on experiences and exploration. The engaging curriculum develops academic, social, physical, and emotional skills, while providing students the chance to develop hobbies, skills, and interests they might not otherwise be able to explore. Community service projects and other hands-on activities help students cultivate positive character traits, and enhance their sense of community.

  • Children are encouraged to begin understanding how they fit into the classroom, the community and their world. This is done by providing children the opportunity to participate in classroom decisions and plan classroom activities.
  • Language and literacy skills at this level include having access to various types of books, including storybooks, factual books, number and letter books.
  • Conversations about the content of a book, discussions about linking books to other aspects of the curriculum and adding new words to increase vocabulary are provided by the teachers.
  • Daily opportunities are offered to fine tune large-motor skills and explore creative expression through dance, music, technology, and art.
  • Our school age program teachers review Georgia Performance Standards and incorporate them in instruction in order to insure that our program supports student achievement.
