Ms. Jiovanna Director

At Grow Smart Children’s Academy we believe that every child is unique and has their own set of strengths, interests, and learning styles. Our philosophy is centered around creating a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment where children can explore, discover, and learn at their own pace. We understand that the early years of a child’s life are critical for their overall development and future success. Therefore, we are committed to providing a high-quality, play-based curriculum that promotes social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth. Our curriculum is designed to be developmentally appropriate, meaning it meets children where they are and helps them progress to the next level.

We believe that children learn best through hands-on experiences and play, and that every experience should be a learning opportunity. Our teachers act as facilitators, guiding children’s learning and providing opportunities for them to investigate, experiment, and discover the world around them. We foster a love of learning by encouraging children to ask questions, explore their surroundings, and take risks in a safe and supportive environment. We also understand the importance of building positive relationships with families and the community.

We strive to create a partnership with families, working together to support children’s learning and development. We believe that open communication and collaboration are key to creating a strong and supportive community. At Grow Smart Children’s Academy we believe that every child has the potential to succeed, and we are committed to helping them reach their full potential. We strive to instill a love of learning, a sense of wonder, and a lifelong curiosity in every child who passes through our doors.

Yours truly,

Jiovanna Ruiz
