That's why we offer a solution that allows parents to focus on teaching rather than spending countless hours researching and planning. Our program takes care of all the groundwork, providing comprehensive instructional materials covering a wide range of subjects.

 Our lessons are meticulously designed to surpass the standards outlined in the Texas Learning Guidelines, ensuring that your child receives a top-notch education. Convenience is key, which is why we offer flexible options for accessing our lesson plans. You can pick them up at our bi-weekly playdates or have them conveniently mailed directly to your home for a small additional fee.

Virtual Classroom

 In our small class settings, students have the valuable opportunity to engage with their peers, fostering communication and collaboration skills. Each class session lasts between 30 and 45 minutes, ensuring focused learning without overwhelming young minds.

Our primary focus is on language arts, reading, and math – the cornerstone subjects of early education. Through movement, interactive games, and storytelling, we make learning fun and engaging. These methods not only reinforce foundational skills in mathematics and literacy but also nurture social development.

Experiential Learning: At Potter and Clay Academy, we believe in the power of play-based learning. We understand that children learn best through experiences rather than worksheets. Our approach engages young minds, nurtures critical thinking, problem-solving skills, fosters confidence, and cultivates strong character, all while preparing them for kindergarten and a lifetime of learning.

Tailored Lesson Plans: We collaborate closely with parents to create personalized lesson plans designed to meet each child's unique educational needs. Say goodbye to the uncertainty of what and how your child should learn. Our dedicated team of highly trained professionals is here to equip and guide your child for success in kindergarten and beyond.

Educator-Owned: Potter and Clay Academy is owned by a dedicated preschool teacher who brings her firsthand classroom experience and academic expertise to the PACA platform. This commitment ensures that parents receive the wisdom of an experienced and knowledgeable educator, as opposed to an owner with no prior teaching background or training.

Brain-Based Learning: We are committed to providing an exceptional learning environment for our students by harnessing the principles of brain-based learning. We understand that every child's brain is a unique and incredible learning machine. By integrating brain-based learning into our curriculum, we tailor our teaching methods to align with how the brain naturally processes and retains information. This approach results in enhanced learning experiences that not only engage our students but also maximize their cognitive development. We focus on nurturing their natural curiosity, fostering critical thinking, and encouraging creativity, all while ensuring a strong foundation in core subjects. With brain-based learning at the core of our educational philosophy, our students not only thrive academically but also gain valuable skills and knowledge that will serve them well throughout their lives.
