Welcome to Children’s Academy Brandon!

Baldwin & Debra Sterling At Our Brandon Preschool

Baldwin & Debra Sterling

Children’s Academy preschool opened its doors in 1981 founded by Ms. Susana Blake an inspiring educator and philanthropist.  She operated the school for 25 years before selling it in 2006 to our family.

We visited many preschools before purchasing Children’s Academy.  Many of the schools we visited were recently built and were aesthetically pleasing, but lacked a quality we couldn’t fully identify until we walked through the doors of Children’s Academy for our first tour.

As we toured, we felt the love and warmth of the teachers, saw the smiles on the children’s faces and were comforted by the homey feeling of the environment.

The children exuded such confidence and independence, we knew they were receiving a truly well-rounded education.

The Children’s Academy atmosphere continues to be full of love and respect for each individual child’s needs. We consider teaching your child a privilege that is taken very seriously.

We challenge our students to reach their highest individual potential, enabling them to confidently try news things and navigate the world while upholding good moral fiber.

We also believe good nutrition is critical to child development.  We utilize CA Café to prepare healthy lunches in creative ways helping kids discover the joy of fresh, natural foods and ultimately, choose them over less-nutritious alternatives.

We invite you to explore our website and visit our school.  Join us on this exciting academic and family-oriented adventure, allowing us to open up a whole new world for your child.

With warm regards,

The Sterling Family
