Caterpillar International Academy focuses on providing a unique learning opportunity for children, fusing education and play into a safe environment to stimulate fun and a love for learning in young minds and encouraging lifelong independence for every child.
C.I.A will ensure each child has a takeaway they learn daily. While the day is full of fun, social interaction, and hands-on projects, all activities will include the daily takeaway so that kids will feel at ease and ready to learn more. This learning style has become a proven model to prepare children for school better and keep their active and creative minds prepared to learn more.
OUR MISSION: Our mission at Caterpillar International Academy is to provide each child with an educational experience promoting independence. Our C.I.A. teachers are trained to nourish, nurture, and educate each child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth to encourage independence. We are committed to children, parents, and families by providing emotional support and ongoing resources.
Caterpillar International Academy has gained parents' trust for providing an environment conducive to early childhood education. You can count on C.I.A. to provide a safe and secure environment for learning.

At Caterpillar International Academy, we follow The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) program MyPlate.
The colorful divided plate includes sections for vegetables, fruits, grains, and protein foods. MyPlate's user-friendly, interactive website provides simple messages, such as:
Choose variety — the best meals have a balance of items from different food groups
Fill half your child's plate with vegetables and fruits
Make at least half the grains you serve whole grains, like oatmeal, whole-wheat bread, and brown rice
Serve fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk and water rather than sugary drinks
Don't serve oversized portions
