Seashore Early Childhood Academy

Our Mission

The mission of the Island Foundation Private Education Program is to provide an early childhood education program and school age after school care activities dedicated to developing self-esteem, confidence, and social skills while delivering an educational curriculum which focuses on the whole child.

Our Vision

We envision a school in which children love to learn, staff is open to professional growth and parents are actively involved. With a variety of experiences and backgrounds that parents contribute, they are a valuable resource. We see the parents, staff and board members modeling the very behavior they teach: cooperation, courtesy and respect. We see a school in which communication is open, honest and kind and where all participants are working to be their best. Our vision is that of a school that grows in enrollment because of parents’ enthusiastic support.

Our Values

In accomplishing our mission, we:
Value each child’s language, intellectual, social, emotional, physical and creative development
Value the dignity of each child, parent and staff member
Are guided by respect for self, for others, and for the environment
Affirm the joy of doing one’s best
Enable the success of each person by providing a professional, caring and nurturing school
Provide an environment in which children develop their talents in a cooperative atmosphere
Value communication that is open, honest, and kind
