“We have been going to Premier Academy since our first son was 8 weeks old and he will be going to Kindergarten in the Fall. The boys love it here and the people are nothing but amazing! They have helped our boys grow up and become the awesome little guys they are. The structure of Premier and the way they teach has been instrumental in getting our oldest ready for Kindergarten. Thanks to all the people who work there everyday and take care of our boys. We have nothing but thanks for all you guys do!” ~Shannen Bishop

Childcare can be one of the most difficult decisions you'll make as a parent.

When my husband and I started our family, childcare was a necessary part of our busy lives. We found that strong communication with the teachers enhanced our own experience and the experiences of our children. We knew that when our kids were excited to go to “school,” they were in good hands. While we knew no one can replace the love and care of us as parents, knowing that our children were in a safe and loving environment made it easier to leave them each day.
I ultimately decided to open Premier Academy Child Enrichment Center because I recognized the need for high-quality, educational and fun childcare in the Omaha metro. The importance of offering not only a high-quality educational environment, but the importance of attending to the social and emotional well-being of each child as well. Research has shown that a trusting, secure relationship helps children do well in many areas of their life socially, emotionally and cognitively.

Emphasis on Premier Education

Providing children with a premier education at every age level is important to us at Premier Academy. We utilize developmentally age-appropriate classrooms and group children by milestones. Our educational program is based on academic research and follows the Nebraska Early Learning Guidelines, which states children experience the best learning when they are having fun. Our program focuses on child development that include academic, social, creative and child-centered development to provide a well-rounded experience and ensure children become confident, happy and fully-prepared for school.

As a parent I know communication is essential so we use Tadpoles, a software program that allows classroom teachers to create daily reports for every child, including daily activities, meals/snacks, bathroom use and more. Teachers are able to quickly access medical and allergy information, as well as emergency contact information. Parents receive daily reports emailed to them upon their child’s checkout, where they can also view photos and videos, too! What’s more, the software is private and secure, so parents know their children’s information is always safe.

Emphasis on Premier Health

With my background in nursing, I knew that an important premise behind Premier Academy should be a focus on children’s health and well-being. We offer nutritious meals and snacks prepared onsite, as well as your child’s usual favorites. In addition to our age-appropriate stimulating activities, we have a custom-built indoor and outdoor play areas and even offer baby yoga.

When cold and flu season arrive, we know that the safety and wellness of your child is a top priority. That’s why we use ZONO Sanitech year-round, an environmental-friendly way to sanitize. This machine sanitizes nearly everything—plastic, wood, metal, fabric, and glass, as well as art supplies (even crayons!), books, soft play items and more. In addition to an emphasis on cleanliness, our teachers are also trained in CPR and first aid.

Premier Academy: the Place to Enrich Your Child.

We know you want the best for your child; Premier Academy wants the best for your child now ... and in the future.
