At Little Fireflies Academy we believe children gather and retain information best through the process of discovery directed by internal motivation. Socialization is a key component in personal and educational development and needs to be fostered in early childhood experience and education. We believe through play, developmentally appropriate and intellectually stimulating activities children will achieve better preparedness for lifelong learning.
We strongly believe and evidence supports that children move through stages in a set order, but not necessarily at a set pace, this is one of many reasons we believe in the richness of a multi-age program. Others include, but are not limited to: the positive interaction between and among mixed ages provides a framework to develop compassion, leadership, responsibility, accountability, and empathy.
Little Fireflies Academy was been brewing in my mind for over 7 years. Once I had my fourth child my dream became a reality when I was able to purchase a home in Whiting IN. Having four children I know how hard it can be to find high quality education for a reasonable price. So I wanted to be able to provide it for my newest little member but, still be able to impact the lives of other children. I was a teacher for ten years and then I was a coach/observer for four years.We opened our Whiting location in March 2018. We expanded to Hammond IN in May of 2021 with our 2nd location.
