At Premier Christian Academy, we believe that you’re never too young to benefit from early childhood education. That’s why our infant program in Northlake and Murphy serves babies as young as 6 weeks old, providing them with the tools they need to prosper in this important stage of development.
Children’s brains develop rapidly during their first year of life. Every experience they encounter creates brand new neural connections in their brain, allowing for rapid cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional, and motor development. The best way to nourish this growth is by nourishing a close relationship between the caregiver and child. That’s why it’s essential to choose a reputable infant care program with trained educators when it comes to giving your baby a healthy future.
At Premier Christian Academy, our professional child care providers spend hours every day nurturing infants through talk, play, and even song, in order to stimulate brain growth and provide them with a sense of emotional security.
Beginning early childhood education from as young an age as possible is not only good for children’s neurological health, but also their physical health. According to recent studies, enrolling your child in child care from infancy can help boost their immunity.
At Premier Christian Academy, our cornerstones are psychology, growth, and faith. That’s why we make sure that each and every infant in our care is treated with the love and attention they deserve. We use the Abeka curriculum to introduce them to Christian values, creating the foundation for a lifelong commitment to God. If you’re a new parent who is looking to enroll your little one in the best infant child care in the area, get in touch with Premier Christian Academy in Northlake and Murphy today.

Finding the right child care provider for your toddler doesn’t have to be difficult. At Premier Christian Academy, we offer a toddler program that your little one is sure to look forward to day after day. Our God-centered approach to early childhood education means that not only will your toddler be learning essential cognitive, emotional, social, and gross motor skills, but they will also be developing the bedrock for a lifelong love of God.
All of our teachers are kept up-to-date on the latest advances in early childhood education research, so that they can help your toddler make the most out of their formative first few years. During toddlerhood, children reach many developmental milestones, such as learning how to walk, talk, use the potty, and play with others. At Premier Christian Academy, we understand that all children do not develop at the same rate. That’s why we treat each and every toddler in our care as they individual that they are, and encourage their growth at a pace that seems appropriate.
Our toddler daycare program includes a number of fun, structured activities, such as circle time, outdoor play, blocks, puzzles, art, large motor, yoga, math, reading, finger paint, and more. While these activities may seem like simple diversions, they actually help your child develop essential skills, such as learning empathy, basic communication, and how to share with others. You’ll be amazed at all the new knowledge your toddler will share with you when they come home from child care. They will want to tell you about everything from colors, to shapes, to letters of the alphabet. At Premier Christian Academy, we know that you’re never too young to develop an academic worldview. By teaching toddlers basic math concepts, phonetics, vocabulary, and more, our early childhood educators will help prepare your child for kindergarten and beyond.

When it comes to finding the right preschool for your child, it’s essential to choose a program that has a proper balance of work and play.

In addition, we ensure that preschool students engage in social activities on a daily basis, so that they learn how to communicate with others, share their belongings, develop empathy, and make friends.
