It is our mission to provide the best high-quality childcare and early education programs for young children.  High-quality programs enhance children's development and learning. It is our mission to guide children to not only achieve success in school but in life.  We believe all young children should be nurtured in environments that are safe, stimulating, inclusive, developmentally challenging and supportive in their social/emotional, cognitive, language, physical development and taught by highly-qualified education professionals who have knowledge of the growth and development of children.  With an uncompromising commitment to excellence and passionate, highly-qualified educators, you will be delighted to discover the difference at Grays Ferry Early Learning Academy.  Our commitment to early learning and education begins in our toddler program and extends throughout our school-age program.  Our goal at Grays Ferry Early Learning Academy is to instill a lifelong love of learning in each child and ensure that your child has the skills they need to succeed not only in school, but in life..
