The Early Learning Center program at Apollo Beach provides classes for 3 and 4 year olds. We offer several three and five day a week program options to meet our families needs. This flexibility allows you to choose a program that will best suit your child's needs and development.
The Apollo Beach Early Learning Center has monthly themes appropriate for the age of the children in our care. Specific skills such as the alphabet, number awareness, phonics, fine and gross motor skills, as well as written communication, are integrated into these themes. Organized play is always an important part of our program.
The Early Learning Center
- encourages self-expression
- creativity through art

The Academy uses a teacher-created curriculum which is supplemented by several formal teaching tools - The Creative Curriculum and Wee Learn.
The multi-sensory Handwriting Without Tears, an adopted curriculum by our Early Learning Center, uses magnetic boards and clay to help young children develop those important fine motor skills for elementary school.
Apollo Beach Early Learning Center offers our students a wide variety of special classes on a weekly basis. The children enjoy Art, Music, Computers, and the 4-year olds enjoy learning Spanish.
Each day our children are taught God’s word through Bible stories, singing, sharing, and Bible verses. Each month we highlight a special virtue. We teach children that prayer is talking to their best friend and demonstrate that by praying throughout the day.
