The Finch Academy is a high-quality, culturally diverse organization that provides children from age 3 through Pre-Kindergarten the core life-building skills necessary for a healthy and productive future. The Finch Academy respects and values each individual family and their involvement is essential to the care and education that we provide.

The Finch Academy provides children with a rich environment of creative curriculum where children learn through play and nature-based environment to nurture minds, friendships and families. Our skilled and knowledeagable teachers maintain developmentally-appropriate activities with individualized goals and expectations for each child. We foster the belief that every child presented with the opportunity to belong, develop independence, a positive self-image, cultivate generosity; highlighting their strengths and what they can count on about themselves and others. We strive to build the foundation for life-long learning: a sense of curiosity and compassion, the academic and social skills needed for success in Kindergarten and beyond.
