Little Scholars Academy at Lake Oconee
Where learning is a journey, not a race
New Technology at Little Scholars Academy!
The students at Little Scholars Academy (LSA) were excited to start the school year with new iPads and Mimio Interactive whiteboards. "The Mimio Whiteboard is my favorite center" said Kallyn Black a Kinder Prep student. Evan Burton, also a Kinder Prep student said he like the iPads the best! All of the students will have the opportunity to use this new technology equipment in their classrooms, which is amazing considering the youngest student at LSA is only 18 months old. "These young scholars are truly the leaders of tomorrow, so why not expose them to technology at this early age? The iPads and Interactive whiteboards also enhance eye-hand coordination, literacy, number recognition and many other skills." said Mrs. Anne Bared-Hill, the Head of School at Little Scholars Academy. Since Little Scholars Academy is a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization, the school was able to purchase this new technology equipment for the children with donations to the schools "Dollars for Scholars" fund.
Little Scholars Academy (LSA) is a preschool founded in 2010 and is currently accepting applications for enrollment. The school, conveniently located on Harmony Road in Eatonton, serves children ages two, three, four and five throughout the community.
