Square One Kids Academy | Oakland, NJ Daycare Blogs
Square One Kids Academy is a state licensed, full-service child care and education facility for children from 6 weeks to 6 years of age. We strive to be the first solid foundation for your child’s physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development. This will aid in their long term success in education, personality development, and independence.
Ready, set, go…we were off…Practicing our skills while playing basketball, soccer, and a good old game of catch!
It was an active week, with a focus on physical fitness and coordination. Through literature, illustrations, and organized activities, we learned about some of our favorites like baseball, basketball, soccer, and football. We discussed the importance of teamwork and what it truly means to work together.
We used our artistic flair make balls for all sports, each time using a different and unique technique! We decorated our rooms with our beautiful works of art, as well! Many of our Pre K friends talked about being famous athletes when they are older. This prompted wonderful discussions on trying our best to achieve our goals!
Our field trip this week was to Bounce Safari! What a perfect way to test our strength, agility, speed, and athletic skills! We jumped and bounced on giant bounce inflatables, basketball hoops, and more! Having the freedom to jump, run, and play was just an awesome addition to our sports themed week!

Each of these firsts meant something different to each of us, leaving a lasting impression in some way.
THANK YOU for giving us the opportunity to share these firsts with each of you and your children.
As I have said before, it is YOUR confidence and trust in us, from the day you registered your children, that has allowed us to become the Square One Kids Academy we are today.
We are a family, a family that continues to grow. To say we are grateful is an understatement!
Every morning, we are greeted with hugs and smiles from your children and I mean every. single. morning.
I can’t tell you the volume that speaks, not only about you as parents, but about us here at school.
These bonds are sincere, strong, and so very meaningful!
I’m not sure all teachers and directors can say the same, but I AM proud to say our family here at Square One is so genuine and over flowing with love.
So again, THANK YOU…for giving us the opportunity each day to teach, nurture, love, and watch your children grow and learn. It is MY personal pleasure to lead these amazing teachers to do just that every day.
Now onto the show! The Pink Flamingo, Green Parrot, and Blue Peacock classes performed music we can all relate to…Rock & Roll!! Their singing and choreography was spectacular! They completely dazzled a room full of 100 people!!
PROUD…so very proud of these beautiful and amazing children!
After the show, we celebrated the BIGGEST FIRST of this magical year, the graduation of our first Pre K class.
Each of these children are ready to enter kindergarten, sharing all they have learned here with their new friends and teachers.
We are sad to see them go, but so proud to send them off to elementary school to shine as we know they will!
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CLASS OF 2017!
