Technology

Children who are exposed to technology in a preschool setting will start their educational career with a distinct advantage. Each Little Leprechaun classroom contains computers and teachers incorporate the use of computers whenever possible during daily instruction time and free time.

Little Leprechaun Academy is the most innovative and high-tech early education center in the country.  Here are just a few of the ways that our school leverages technology:

Robotic Classrom Cameras

Each classroom is equipped with a state-of-the-art video camera capable of streaming live video through a secure connection to our parent's computer or tablet while they are at home or work.  There are other childcare facilities in the country that provide this service to parents, but not like ours.   Our cameras allow parents to control the camera.  Specifically, parents can pan, tilt and zoom right in on their children while they play, sleep, eat or create an art project.  This brings parents into their child's classroom in a way that has never been done before and provides concerned parents with great peace of mind.

Computer/Technology Lab

Little Leprechaun Academy has a dedicated computer lab pre-loaded with educational, age-appropriate software.  Little Leprechaun also maintains a school-wide license to ABCMouse.com.  ABC Mouse helps children learn to read thorugh phonics, and teaches lessons in math, social studies, art, music and much more.  Children spend time in our dedicated computer lab numerous times throughout each week.

State of the Art Building Security

Little Leprechaun Academy leverages proprietary software which manages building security.  Every parent has their own personalized password to gain access to our building.  When parents arrive in the morning for drop-off, or in the afternoon for pickup, parents will enter their password on a wall-mounted tablet computer.  After the system authenticates the parent, the door is electronically unlocked permitting access.  After a family is no longer enrolled at our school, the password is immediately removed and school access is thus prevented.   This personalized approach to building security differs from many of our competitors that - either have no security at all, or  - have only 1 access code that is shared by everyone.
