Our Philosophy

The GBT Children’s Academy has a hands-on approach to learning.  We do not watch television, unless with permission, as we feel that children learn BEST through activities and real-life situations! All children, including the shy, outspoken, energetic, and quiet, needs to be integrated in everyday learning.  The teachers and other adults (parents, strangers, actors/actresses) are key examples in children’s lives.

Psalms 127:3 states that children are a gift from God. The GBT Children’s Academy has a mission to nurture and develop children to their FULLEST POTENTIAL. The GBT Children’s Academy is a place for GROWING in four key developmental areas: Spiritual, Social, Cognitive and Physical. We will strive to meet the individual needs of every child in our educational program.

The GBT Children’s Academy is a place for BUILDING. For children to be successful, we place a focus on building a child’s character by nurturing and fostering self-esteem and developing positive relationships with others and they will learn that their relationship with God centers on the relationships they form with adults, parents and peers.

The GBT Children’s Academy is a place for parents, teachers and children to work TOGETHER. Children who graduate from our ACADEMY will continue on with a good sense of themselves and others in the world and possess a solid academic foundation in which to continue their education. You can take confidence in knowing that at GBT Children’s Academy, your child will be GROWING, BUILDING, and we will do it TOGETHER.
