About the school

The teachers and staff of Big Blue Marble Academy (BBMA) of Waterford Lakes, a high quality early childhood center in Orlando, are passionate about creating nurturing and engaging educational experiences that will spark a lifelong love of learning. Teachers at BBMA work to establish a classroom community that fosters the development of early learning and literacy skills alongside social-emotional growth.

Educational philosophy and administration

Big Blue Marble Academy’s proprietary curriculum is called Passport to Learning. Passport to Learning focuses on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), based on the belief that to “succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” BBMA students can also engage in Spanish and French immersion and participate in gardening activities and arts and crafts. In addition, the curriculum has an emphasis on character development. Each year, classes fundraise and participate in hands-on activities with a charitable organization they choose. In the after school program, The Adventure Club, students are exposed to world cultures and languages through various Destination programs that include Destination Learning, Destination Imagination, which is art-based, Destination Global Adventure, and Destination Team Nation, which teaches leadership skills and then integrates them into real-life experiences such as sports.
