Mill Creek Academy

Our Curriculum

Mill Creek Academy is a child-centered preschool that focuses on learning through play. Our program takes into account the needs of the WHOLE child (physical, social, emotional, language, and cognitive). This prepares the child not only for school, but all areas of life.

Mill Creek Academy will use the curriculum guide from the HIGH SCOPE CURRICULUM, Handwriting Without Tears, and a Social Curriculum called "Social Thinking". We believe in the importance of Science enrichment, sensory play, and art.

Our curriculum focuses on each individual child. Children are given the opportunity to learn at their own pace with the support of teachers. The classroom is center-based and the curriculum/theme is integrateed throughout the room and lessons. The following learning centers are provided at developmentally appropriate levels:

Reading Center

Art Center

Dramatic Play



Science & Math

Listening Center

Sensory Bin


Art is taught by Little Art House based in Hillsboro Village.

All teachers have a degree in Art Education, Fine Art, or Child Development and have experience working with students of all ages.
