Pineapple Cove Academy's principle goal is to dedicate ourselves to providing a safe, secure and encouraging environment for the healthy growth, development, and education of each and every child. Along with the instruction there must be a balance of fun and play time.
We provide a nurturing and challenging atmosphere where children are motivated to learn through hands-on opportunities which build self-confidence, and encourage children to become creative thinkers. We understand that the parents and family unit are the greatest influence in a child's life. We are committed to working closely with parents and family to provide the best plan for your child's learning and development.
Family Communication & Partnership
We know it takes families, teachers, and our management team working together to provide the ultimate in quality care and education for these future Pineapple leaders who come through our front door. School founders, Directors, Assistant Directors, and Teachers are available to families every day. We value the parents’ input, support, and your confidence in us. We encourage you to partner with us in a variety of ways. Become involved; read our lesson plans, parent newsletter, become a Parent Action Team (P.A.T.) member and join us at Pineapple Cove Academy special events.

Safety Features at PCA
Another primary goal of Pineapple Cove Academy is to provide a safe environment for children and to instill parents with a sense of security while their children are in our care. We take this commitment seriously and have systems in place to ensure this goal is carried out. Our children are never left unattended or unsupervised while in the care of Pineapple Cove Academy staff and management team. Classrooms, playgrounds, and common areas are equipped with closed circuit cameras to allow constant monitoring by parents and management. There is immediate phone access in the building at all times. Every classroom phone prominently displays all emergency contact numbers. The entry of PCA is equipped with a magnetic lock and coded key pad for added security. Owner or management team is centrally located to screen visitors upon arrival. A fence surrounds our entire playground and gates remain secured. Our entire staff is First Aid/CPR certified and trained in Fire Safety. Fire drills are conducted monthly and severe weather drills are conducted quarterly.
Pineapple at Play
Community involvement is very important to us at Pineapple Cove Academy. We participate in local sponsorship and charitable organizations. Children learn about the significance of giving and being a part of their community. A working partnership must be just that - working together in every possible way. Throughout the year, you can find Pineapple Cove Academy transformed into a Pineapple Palace, Valentine’s Dance Hall, or even a snowy Winter Wonderland.
Every year we kick off our school year with our literacy program and our beloved Fairy Tale Ball. The whole school is transformed into the magical Pineapple Palace as we share our passion for fairy tales with our children. This incredible event is just the beginning!
Throughout the year we offer so many other ways for our children to learn through tangible experiences and worldly discoveries. Through our annual Winter Wonderland we are able to donate more than 200 toys and books to local charitable organizations. This process of giving is so meaningful in teaching our children the invaluable concept of sharing.
Join us anytime for one of these fun-filled affairs. We love to share with our community and always enjoy meeting new friends.
Pineapple Cove Academy has been fortunate to build many business partnerships. We would like to take the time to mention these businesses and recognize them as a valued part of our professional family.
