Indoor and Outdoor Play Areas

Our facilities feature large and spacious outdoor play areas with slides, a playhouse, games, sports balls and much more. We also have an indoor multi-purpose room/gymnasium that is used for a variety of activities.

In these areas, children participate in structured play as well as free play times to help them burn off some energy and keep them active!

Meeting New Friends

The Collins Aerospace Day Academy provides services for hundreds of children throughout the year. Your child will have the opportunity to interact with other children of various ages and learn about important social skills and make new friends along the way.

These new friendships are an important part of a child’s development process, and we encourage interaction with their classmates.

Helping Your Child Grow

As part of your child’s experience, we provide developmentally appropriate activities centered around cognitive and language skills. Depending on their ages, children will learn to master manipulative skills and be exposed to shapes, colors, letters and numbers by using sensory experiences, play with blocks, paint, read books, sing songs, develop motor skills and, of course, engage in free play!

All of these activities contribute to the healthy development of your child while in our care.
