About the school

Vanguard Children’s Academy (VCA) offers full-time and part-time programs for children age 18 months through five years, including VPK. The school started serving Coral Gables families in 2012 with a mission to create a safe and secure place for each child to learn and develop at their full capacity. Teachers emphasize cognitive, physical and social growth. The school is open from 7:45 am to 6:00 pm, with after-care. One parent appreciates the environment, calling it “beautiful, clean and modern. They have a great structure and most importantly, the staff here is extremely professional, attentive, caring and knowledgeable. We really love the teachers here and so does our little one.”

Educational philosophy and administration

Vanguard Children’s Academy follows The Creative Curriculum, structuring education around hands-on activities that strengthen each child’s love for learning. Literacy and kindergarten read-iness are they keystones of VCA’s curriculum. The school provides an extensive collection of books, felt boards and audiotapes, allowing children to explore language when curiosity strikes. Children can also take Spanish and Portuguese language lessons. The VCA campus offers an “outdoor classroom” on their playground with teaching materials including easels and musical instruments.
