At Big Blue Marble Academy, we understand what developing minds need to be successful in preschool and in life. Research shows that the first five years of a child’s life are transformative for growing children’s minds and developing their social emotional skills.
Big Blue Marble Academy is not a typical, cookie-cutter daycare. Whether you come to us for early care, preschool or after school care, we’ve designed our programs around what your child needs for their age and stage. We provide the structure children need, while also encouraging their natural curiosity and love of learning.
Plus, we incorporate global education, early language learning, and give-back projects to help children recognize that there is so much more to the world than what’s under their feet. Even our preschoolers can sing songs in multiple languages!
Our approach is:
We know each of our families so well, that we become an extension of each family! We invite you to learn more about Big Blue Marble Academy below.

We’ve created a comprehensive, cultural curriculum that teaches children about different parts of the world. Our goal is to enhance their perspective outside of their own community. We expose children to different languages and the needs of children in other parts of the world, while also teaching them the importance of giving back to their community and others’. Our dynamic classes incorporate original music, dance, games, storytelling and more to keep kids immersed and engaged in their target language.
Language immersion: We deliver highly engaging Spanish, French and Mandarin classes and language immersion summer camps in a lively, encouraging learning environment.
STEAM: STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics to expand children’s inquiry and critical thinking. The STEAM program results in children who are thoughtful problem-solvers that want to collaborate with peers and embrace their creativity.
When your child is not with your family, they’re with our family. It’s important to take comfort in knowing your child is in the best hands. We know that safe, responsive, and nurturing environments are a critical part of helping children learn and grow.
