Our Philosophy

new-oreleans-child-care-uptown-toysBenjamin Thomas Academy provides a quality child care experience in a comfortable, familiar, home-like setting.

Our program reflects the belief that learning takes place primarily through exploratory activities and discovery. The amount of adult guidance varies with each activity, as it is our belief that a good program offers both directed and non-directed experiences, encouraging your child to plan and think about their actions.

Each room provides a child-centered environment with a wide range of materials and developmentally appropriate activities, which allow your child to create, manipulate, explore, and discover according to their particular and unique interests. Each child is valued and recognized as a unique individual with a large capacity for growth and development.

Through both group and individual activities, your child is encouraged to develop socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically at his or her own rate.

The atmosphere at Benjamin Thomas Academy is relaxed and casual geared towards the interests and needs of your child, allowing them the freedom to be ones self and develop as a unique individual. We take into consideration your child’s differences and special abilities as well as your families culture and values.
