Young Innovators Academy® opens a second location in Fishhawk. Design thinking in preschool? Robotics and Coding? Check out how this Florida Based early education Company prepares children for a world of constant change.
A company built by educators empowering learners to become agents of change in their communities.
Young Innovators Academy, an early learning company on a mission to empower young learners to meet the challenges of an uncertain future, is pleased to announce the opening of a preschool servicing Fish hawk and nearby communities.
The school is the brand’s second location and will start enrolling students in January 2023. The center provides childcare, enrichment programs, and early education for children from six weeks to six years of age.
Experts on the future of work say that much of the workforce is at risk of becoming obsolete because of the spread of computers, robots, and other automated technologies. Young Innovators Academy believes traditional preschool programs are not preparing young children for the future.
The program introduces young learners to a new approach to educating the future workforce during the most fertile years of brain development.
“Our school is a joy-filled, student-centered program in which children explore real-world topics in a hands-on learning environment,” said VP of Operations Erika Seger. “The curriculum teaches children how to solve problems using creativity, critical thinking, and making things encouraging children to become confident and independent learners.
“At Young Innovators Academy, young learners graduate as life-long learners intrinsically motivated to solve the most challenging problems for others and take ownership of their learning. Said CEO Marnie Forestieri. “Inside our classrooms, preschoolers are introduced to the problem, for example, how to create a toy to help calm infants. Children discover the problem by conducting observations in the infant classroom and then going back to their homeroom to research the topic. Once the main problem is defined, small groups brainstorm ideas on products they can design, prototype, and create. Once created, the group introduces the new toys to the infants to test and identify ways to improve the design.”
Rooted in research on how children learn and develop, our programs offer a radically personalized way to preserve the mindsets and skills of the early years to help every child learn new things and realize their untapped potential, ideas, and problem-solving capacities.
University professors and early childhood practitioners developed the Young Innovators Academy Proprietary curriculum to help young children gain mastery of core subjects like math and language while also developing the skills, mindsets, and habits of lifelong learning.
“We are excited to meet the demand of families and offer a program to empower learners to take ownership of their learning,” said VP of curriculum Dr. Debby Mitchell. That is why we named our curriculum “The Innovation Advantage” to teach children how to pursue their passions and take ownership of their learning.
To complement the academic curriculum, Young Innovators Academy utilizes various enrichment programs such as Innovation parties, Music, STEAM, philanthropy, Learn exercise, coding and robotics, manners and etiquette, and foreign languages.
Conveniently located along Fishhawk Blvd., the center allows easy access and meets the high demand for quality childcare in the area.
