About the school

Little Palms Academy provides full-time and part-time programs for infants through age five, including VPK. The center also provides summer camps, before-care, after-care with transportation and weekend care. Established in Fort Lauderdale in 2014, the facility is open from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm. Little Palms’ mission is to “provide a home-like, clean, loving, supportive, safe, educational environment for families who need affordable, high quality child care.” One parent shared, “My daughter wakes up every day excited to go here and genuinely loves it.” Another called the school “a wonderful place for children to learn and grow.”

Educational philosophy and administration

Little Palms’ focus is school readiness, and learning activities include songs, reading, puzzles, games, dramatic play, writing projects, science experiments, crafts, and physical activity. One parent commented, “I have found this school, and I do emphasize school not day care, is above the best I have ever been in. My son has done nothing but flourish in their environment. They have established lesson plans. They bend over backwards to make sure all the children are happy and healthy.” Another wrote, “My son has learned so much. He loves reading and comes home with lots of songs. The kids have lots of stuff to do there and if you walk in at any given time, you will see happy kids and lots of caring adults.” Little Palms Director Tracey Edmundson, who one parent called “the most wonderful person I have ever met,” oversees teachers who “truly believe in every child’s potential and uniqueness.” Another parent commented that the staff provides “such a great supportive environment, I always feel great about leaving my daughter in their care.” Another noted, “The staff in this school has a special way of putting kindness into words and caring into actions; that is truly rare and deeply appreciated.”
