Emmy’s Academy – an early intervention childcare center
We provide an early learning environment with low student to teacher ratios. We accept all children regardless of diagnosis or special circumstances ages 6 weeks through 6 years old. We offer a tailored experience where all children have access to work on their therapy goals throughout their day.
What is a PLAY™?
PLAY™ is Emmy’s Academy’s personalized developmental
care plan: a PLAn for You. PLAYs™ are designed to encompass the child’s developmental landscape by incorporating therapy, learning,
and socializing into their own playful environment. Their PLAY™
will be adjusted as accomplishments occur, skills emerge or if a child
happens to regress.
A New Way to Communicate!
Transparent lines of communication between Emmy’s Academy Care
Team members are of the utmost importance for the development of
each child under our special care. Each child has their own password
protected and confidential parent portal, where all Care Team
members can share information about the child’s education, goals,
daily activities, and plan of treatment.
We utilize the HiMama App to keep in constant communication. Parents have access to real-time information and a daily summary report emailed at the end of the day.
Much More Than Childcare
All children at Emmy’s Academy will receive a developmentally
appropriate, inclusive preschool education with a curriculum
focused on addressing the four developmental domains (physical,
emotional, social and cognitive), giving them a solid foundation to
succeed later in their elementary school years.
Our full-time, Special Education Teacher, Glenda Mateo, creates customized lessons based on the Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards. Glenda has been with Emmy’s Academy since we opened last summer (2017) and has over 30 years of experience with teaching children with special needs.
The Importance of Inclusion
Creating an inclusive environment allows children of all abilities to have access to the same education, fosters understanding, teaches acceptance, and helps each student maximize their potential by providing a more authentic
Emmy’s Academy serves all children: typical and with special needs. We believe that every child
is unique, even if they have the same diagnosis or none at all. Our highly-trained staff and
Special Education team has experience caring for over 70 different diagnoses.
Our current ratio is 93% children with special needs and 7% typical developing children.
