About Us


The Padawan Academy

The "play, learn, grow" philosophy is at the foundation of our educational program. Your child will learn at her/his best pace through play and interactive curricula that encourage age-appropriate levels of cooperation and independent problem-solving. We are excited to participate in and monitor your child's physical, linguistic and social-emotional growth while in our care. We understand how challenging it is for parents to let a child "go" into a daycare or preschool setting. We look forward to making this process as comfortable as possible for you. Our staff will communicate milestones with you, and we invite you to share in your child's learning experience through live cameras in every classrooms and a mobile app to share updates throughout the day. You'll receive pictures of your child in action. You will know about her/his meals, activities, friendships and much more. We aim to make every early childhood transition seamless - from baby to toddler, toddler to school-ready.

We accept Vouchers! To apply for a voucher, please follow this link, then upload your certificate to your student's application. If you have questions, please call our office at (904) 659-9052.
