Hi! My name is Heather Tate and I am the owner of Live & Learn Academy. I am a native North Carolinian raising 4 children with my wonderful husband Kasey. As a mom myself, I know all to well how difficult it is to trust strangers to care for your little ones. It's the very reason I started a preschool 11 years ago! All the worries, doubts and fears you may feel at this very moment during your search for childcare, I've had them! Live & Learn Academy is a childcare program but we are so much more than that. Over the years, we've formed a tight community with our families and built friendships that will last a lifetime. We may start off as strangers, but we don't intend to stay that way for long!
Development begins when a child is conceived and continues throughout life. We view each child's growth and development as a process, not an event. Our goal is to provide positive settings where children can experience learning "hands on" using a wide variety of learning materials. Our theme based, teacher created curriculum provides guidance and activities in each unit to help a child develop language, reading, writing and math skills appropriate to his/her level. Physical, mental, emotional and social development are equal of importance. Our teachers select activities which provide a balanced program of early childhood education and offer a daily adventure of learning through play. Your child's experiences at Live & Learn Academy will encourage growth in all developmental areas and foster a lifelong love of learning.
