The Early Learning Academy

Come explore the wonders of Promise Childcare! Our daycare offers a safe and inviting learning environment, plus exciting Summer Camp and Fall Registration options. Join us to unlock a world of adventure and discovery! Join us at Lefferts Garden Promise.


At Lefferts Garden Promise, exceptional childcare is our promise. To us, that means not only providing a safe, clean, and nurturing environment but also equipping children in our care with the skills they need to thrive in a global society. We employ elements of inquiry-based learning, and we truly value learning through play. It is important to us that we encompass a wide array of themes, subjects and elements crucial for child development. Our school takes inspiration from the Montessori and Reggio Emilia learning models. With that said, we really place emphasis on hands-on learning, developing real-life skills and really working with the child’s natural curiosity. We also provide a dual language program. Students are exposed to both Spanish and English, as we recognize the developmental benefits that come from teaching children more than one language at a young age. We are open Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm with the option of extended care until 6:00pm. We offer daily rates, weekly rates and provide a 10% discount for families that opt for our monthly rate. We also accept subsidies, including HRA & ACS vouchers.


At our school, one of core values is to provide a community hub where families can gather to learn and celebrate together. Our program’s success is magnified when there is open communication and collaboration amongst our team, parents and the community at large. While we have an open door policy, we actively work to do our part in keeping those lines of communication open. We host parent nights, where families meet with teachers and administrators to discuss school procedures, events, outreach and policies. We have family day once a month where families are invited to participate in activities during the school day with children. 


Our school's environment was specifically designed to encourage social, emotional, physical and academic growth. We achieve these things by utilizing various tools for fine motor skill development, providing distinct areas for play and social exploration and much much more. We understand that children learn best when their needs are met and they are in an environment that allows for and encourages learning. Our school’s environment, our dedicated staff and our all-encompassing curriculum is a direct reflection of that. If interested, please do not hesitate to reach out and schedule a tour. We would love to have you!
