Background

Walton Academy strongly believes in the importance of education in the early childhood years.  Childcare traditionally serves children birth through four years old.  We believe that cut off is ill-timed. Our belief is that by creating a consistent, nurturing, innovative, and family-centered environment, children are able to move seamlessly from the birth through age eight learning continuum. Encompassing the educational experience from birth through fifth grade is critical to ensuring a seamless and high-quality educational experience for our children.

 

What is Early Childhood Education?

Early childhood education is defined as the formal and informal education of children from birth through age eight.  Early childhood is an essential period in a child’s life.  During these formative years, children build their foundations of well-being, self-confidence, academics, physical health, and overall happiness. Research shows that during these years children have the ability to learn more quickly than at any other time in their life. If a child is successful in school by third grade, research indicates that the same child will most likely be successful throughout all of their academic career.  However, the reverse is also true. If a student is struggling academically by third grade, it is likely that the child will continue to struggle throughout the remainder of their academic careers.  This being said, high-quality education is critical for children during these important years. Walton Academy was created to provide children with an excellent and high-quality educational experience. Our program was created with every child in mind.  Our accelerated academic program, state of the art facilities, and qualified teachers who are committed to excellence in education ensure that every child reaches their full potential.

 

Seamless Transitions

Our model is unparalleled in our community.  Children’s World Learning Center currently operates four childcare centers in the Greenville/Pitt County area and is still growing.  Children coming through our childcare centers not only receive an outstanding education but are able to make a smooth transition into our kindergarten at Walton Academy.  This move is easy and less stressful for all involved because we already have a relationship built with the students and families.  As an added convenience for our parents electing our extended day option (6:30 am – 6:00 pm), we offer transportation between all four locations so that your child may be dropped off and picked up at the most convenient place for you.
