Why wait to introduce your infant to literacy? At Collina Kids Academy, Literacy begins in the Infant Room with the‘Your Baby Can Read’ Curriculum. Tens of thousands of brain connections are made each second in the first years of an infant’s life, creating the most natural time for infants to learn. As seen on CNN & MSNBC, ‘Your Baby Can Read’ is a cutting edge curriculum designed to maximize this window of opportunity by teaching infants the written word naturally and easily beginning at the age of 3 months.
Collina Kids Academy integrates ‘The Active Learning For Infants’ to ensure that infants gain vital skills to meet developmental milestones through activities that focus on listening and talking, physical development, creativity, and the world around them.
Toddlers have an overwhelming need to investigate their curiosities and express new emotions. ‘Creative Curriculum For Todders’ is a highly recognized curriculum designed to teach toddlers by capitalizing on these natural curiosities.

Using ‘Creative Curriculum,’children develop social relationship skills, explore the alphabet, and develop important skills ranging from learning basic numbers to science concepts. The research based curriculum fosters social & emotional development while supporting cognitive brain development.
