Prospect Academy Mission Statement Our commitment at the Prospect Academy of Westchester is to create a safe and nurturing environment for each child to develop a strong foundation for becoming a lifelong confident and independent learner. We believe in the benefits of bilingual education and the fact that being fluent in more than one language promotes not only early literacy, but also helps recognize, understand and adapt to people from different cultures, which is an essential skill in our modern global society.
Our Philosophy We strongly believe that children are powerful learners who absorb their environment and learn through playing. We implement a Two-Way or Dual-Language teaching approach to achieve one of our major educational goals, which is helping the children to acquire the ability to speak two or more languages. We base our curriculum on the major principles of Montessori teaching focusing on children’s independence, freedom within limits and respect for a child’s natural, psychological, physical, and social development.
"Our six year-old daughter just completed a three week summer camp at Prospect Academy. She just loved it. She loved her teachers, she loved her peers, and she loved the art, theater and science lessons presented each week. All this while also improving her German language skills. As parents, we loved the perfect mix of professionalism and warmth we encountered at Prospect Academy teachers. Our daughter was very excited to go to camp every morning, and it was very difficult to get her to leave in the afternoon. We cannot wait to join them in their many events throughout the year. We are definitely planning to bring our daughter back next summer! We highly recommend Prospect Academy!
