Great Expectations Prep Academy a academic preschool serving children 6 weeks- 12 years old. We believe education begins at birth and the goals capable of being accomplished are beyond our expectations. Each child should be treated as an individual with unique talents, strengths and learning styles. Our goal is to provide a safe environment that will introduce your child to challenges and activities that awaken their senses and spark imagination. We desire that your child gain scholastic knowledge and Godly wisdom. Our curriculum will build character, self-worth, and compassion for others. Great Expectations Preparatory Academy is committed to working with parents to ensure the program is a natural continuum in the family’s life as well as a resource for the community. We accept DHS certificates and offer discounts to Shelby County & City of Memphis employees.

Mission: Our mission is to provide exceptional early childhood education while enhancing the academic, social, physical and spiritual growth and development of our students.

TN just announced they will pay full day tuition for children on subsidy while they are doing virtual learning in childcare centers. 🙌🏽 Huge relief for families who need quality care they can trust during this time. Reach out to your local center to ask if they are hosting to help their community parents. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ If you need to apply for the subsidy Call 901-300-6959 to secure space for our virtual learning program 2759 Colony Park Dr.

Working independently with our VIP leader close by! Happy Monday! 💻 ❤️

It’s important for young children to have a space for privacy. Justyce snuck away into the classroom privacy cube for a quick puzzle.

Great Expectations VIP Scholars!

Great Expectations VIP’s (Virtual Instruction Participants) were ready to rock & roll this morning! We have about 10 kindergarten students attending the same charter school! Parents tip - if you will have more than 1 child at home for virtual learning invest in a pair of headphones for them. It helps them focus and drowns out any other distractions. Even if you are home alone it helps to not hear dogs barking, phones ringing, etc. Teacher/Administrator Tip- Embrace it! 🤗 There is NO room for negativity during this process! There will be trial & error on every side. Give school districts, yourself and your childcare staff grace. Our students deserve our full support without a complaining spirit from their leaders. No one in our lifetime has experienced a time such as this. How we handle this today will determine our tomorrow! Wishing everyone a safe and happy school year!!! We got this Boys & Girls!!! ❤️

Kourdarrius & Mckenzie have welcomed a new baby brother! Say hello to our newest little Owl Kingston! 💙🦉

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood! As long as our friends feel safe & loved nothing else matters! ❤️🦉

Air purification systems are turned on and every surface has been disinfected! Praying for a safe and fun week for our GE family! ❤️🦉

Ready for Anything!

Great Expectations Prep Academy is prepared for the 2020 Pandemic! Touchless soap dispensers and garbage cans, multiple temperature 🤒 recordings daily, increased disinfecting and masks for all over 2! #beprepared #notscared #covid19 #memphischildcare #earlychildhoodeducation #greatexpectationsmemphis #pandemic2020 #playingnow

Can you tell we LOVE books? 📚 Children’s literacy is so important and sets the stage for school success! How many books can you read in a day? #preschool #schoollibrary #welovebooks #memphischildcare #earlychildhoodeducation

I see so many teachers complaining about interaction being lost because you are wearing a mask. Children will NOT be scared of you! Young children are more resilient than we give them credit for! #wearamask #greatexpectations #memphischildcare #earlychildhoodeducation #childcare #infant #safetyfirst

Our Owls are doing such a GREAT job keeping their hands germ free! All sink areas have touchless soap dispensers to help cross contamination. #washyourhands

I am so thankful that we are able to lighten the load for some families this Fall! Scholar Camp will make sure their school work is done while enjoying their day! ❤️🦉

Let’s wish GE’s longest employee Robbie Murden a very special birthday!!! 🥰

Mommy Minute: How to encourage kids to wear a face mask

Let children pick out their masks. Children trust their parents and teachers. When we introduce something they are listening. Be honest. Tell them it’s to keep them safe while they are around other people. ❤️🦉 The Pa. Health Secretary, Dr. Rachel Levine, signed an expanded mask wearing order last week, saying that everyone must wear a mask when they leave their home. This applies to kids age two and olde…

This is how you KNOW they REALLY know their numbers & letters! You see how she corrected herself? She’s one smart 🍪 cookie! #greatexpectationsmemphis #preschool #preschoolspanish

Real Time Updates for our parents!

Many childcare centers are protecting their students and staff by limiting access to the building. We make sure our parents feel connected by giving them access to their child’s day! Every meal, playtime and activity will be sent directly to each parents phone in real time! It’s the peace of mind our parents need to help them through the day! 🦉❤️

Happy Father’s Day to our GREAT Owl Papas!! Enjoy your day! You are appreciated! ❤️🦉
