Our programs


“We have been a Circle
Academy/North Side School family for 5 years now and absolutely love it! Our daughter attended from age 2 to Pre-K and our son has been going since he turned 2. The staff members truly care about each and every child. Circle Academy/North Side not only provides
an amazing early childhood education, but fosters a sense of community and kindness. Even during our nation’s time of crisis, Circle Academy/North Side was there for us. The staff there made sure our family was safe and checked in weekly to see if there was
anything they could do to help us. Their dedicated teachers even provided weekly lesson plans and coordinated virtual meetings so students would still have a sense of normalcy and routine. Circle Academy/North Side is the best!”

“Both of my children attended Circle Academy/North Side School from the age of 2 through Prek. They provided a nurturing, loving and protective environment while also maintaining an enriching curriculum. In the summer they offer a fun, safe summer camp which my children also enjoyed. As a mother and educator I give Circle Academy/North Side School my highest recommendation. The staff has become our extended family and we were so sad when our kids graduated.”

To anyone looking for the best place to send their toddlers and young children,

My two children have attended Circle Academy since 2015 and will continue through 2021. There is not a better option for educational programming and social/emotional development. My children attended the program from age 3 through Universal Pre-K. The administrative and teaching staff are like family. The school is safe, clean and well-decorated with many fun and educational activities. Students are engage daily in hands-on learning activities that focus on core academics, social skills, music, dance, healthy living choices and more. Irene Kouba(Director), Michelle Gatt (Educational Director), Paige Djemal (Administrator) are diligent in the welfare and education of the students and are inside the classrooms each day. The phenomenal teachers and aides make everyday a creative, memorable and fun learning experience. From their spirited theme days to awesome extra-curricular activities, there is always a fun time waiting for your child. The teachers and aides are so patient and tailor their methods to the individual needs of each student. I look forward to picking up my child to be greeted warmly at the door by Paige, Michelle or Irene who memorize the names and faces of every child and parent. Talk about safe? There’s not getting past them unless they know exactly who you are. Not that my kids ever to leave. Their early drop-off and after school pick up hours were so convenient with me being a DOE educator as well. I cannot say enough positive things about Circle Academy. I only wish they went up to 8th grade!

A very satisfied parent.”

“Circle Academy/North Side School was my daughter’s 1st school experience after being at home with parents and grandparents for the 1st 2 years of her life. Needless to say, I was a nervous 1st time mother, but I put my trust in the school and I have not been disappointed. They made my daughter feel safe and loved and helped ease any worries I had from the very beginning. Now, after 2 years, my daughter has learned so much and has excelled in her education beyond my wildest dreams for her age, and will be starting Pre-K in the fall and my son will be starting in their 2’s program. They are truly like family to me and my kids.”
