About Us



-- Delores Powell-McGee










Emergent Preparatory Academy, believes in fostering early childhood experiences through developmentally appropriate practices. Ensuring school readiness for each child. We focus on enhancing the social, cognitive, physical, emotional development and growth of our children. 

  • We believe in providing opportunities to learn and grow in a child-centered environment.

  • We believe in preparing our children through the use of our curriculum (Creative Curriculum) aligned DC Early Learning Standards.

  • We believe in our commitment to family’s engagement and empowerment.

  • We believe in cultural diversity and building a strong foundation in sensitivity through inclusionary practices.​

Emergent Preparatory Academy Child Development Center will develop and deliver experiences that promote the physical and emotional and educational well-being of children.  We are committed to providing services to families that facilitate the child’s ability to reach within and emerge upward towards themselves.  Our goal is to facilitate curiosity for learning through the imagination and the ability to utilize the resources within and external to them, to observe, think, and problem solve through developmentally appropriate hands-on/hands-off-learning experiences.  Emergent Preparatory is an equal-opportunity child center serving the community on a non-discriminatory basis.  

We will work in partnership with families, community-based organizations, and entities to collaborate services and programs for our children, while ensuring a safe, nurturing and comfortable overall environment.
