The Magellan Academy, chosen by parents in a recent survey to be the Best for Families Overall, the Best Childcare Centers, the Best Private School, and the Best Day Camp.
At The Magellan Academy, we believe in coming together with you, the parents, to provide a unified approach to rearing your child(ren).
Many times, children lead double lives, one at the childcare center, and the other at home.
We strive to reinforce the values children learn from their parents at home.
Our principles-based learning focuses on the moral aspect of life, so often missing from today's educational institutions, emphasizing love, empathy, honesty, responsibility, citizenship, and respect for oneself and others.
We feel that it is so important for the foundations of leadership in the community and at home to be laid from a very early age.
