About Us

Your Child Is in Gr8 Hands

There’s a reason why A Gr8 Beginning Academy was named “Best In Carson for Preschool” 3 years in a row. From the start, A Gr8 Beginning Academy was founded by believing early childhood education shapes and molds today’s youth. That way, they would be set on the path towards continued learning for tomorrow. We help children achieve their highest potential to grow into well-rounded individuals who are driven, compassionate, and confident in all aspects of their lives.

A Gr8 Beginning Academy is a private preschool and daycare center for children ages two to six years old, located in Carson, California.

Philosophy

Our philosophy at A Gr8 Beginning Academy is based on the belief that children learn, grow, and develop in various ways and at different levels. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing, and inspiring environment to promote each child’s mental, physical, social, and intellectual growth and development.

We believe that parents play a vital role in the growth and development of their children, both at home and at school. We seek to develop positive relationships between teachers and parents, thus encouraging mutual respect and trust throughout the child’s development. Through education, support, and communication, we hope to assist parents in guiding their children to become knowledgeable, confident, and well-versed individuals throughout their lives.
