About Us

We understand that choosing a licensed child care center in Columbia, SC is a very crucial decision, but be confident that our academy staff has been well trained (many with special degrees, experience and background) to develop, love and care for your precious, intelligent little learners.

Our Mission: to assist parents in the development of their child ages 6wks to 5 yrs old by providing cognitive stimulation and exposure to activities of daily living during hands on learning.

Our Vision:  to allow each and every child to refine their intelligence and achieve their developmental goals at their own pace while learning respect, responsibility, and reassurance. 

Intelligence Refined Academy is a one of a kind preschool that provides contemporary learning along with traditional love and compassion from a diverse group of teachers with a powerful educational commitment to our children.  Our curriculum will be student guided and the child will be encouraged by our staff to excel at his/her own pace to obtain individual success.  Our facility is very unique by its design of individual work centers focusing on math, language arts, science, dramatic play, art, international awareness and music.  We also have an inviting library tailored to our students needs.  It will encourage self learning in a quiet and rewarding environment. Our infant and toddler rooms are designed to prepare our early learners to explore and develop their own likes and dislikes and to express their opinion and personalities in a respectful manner.  We will also teach our students and early learners the importance of health, nutrition and fitness as this will be demonstrated daily and will be a part of our curriculum.  We will also be offering a 24 hour on call nurse for all students and early learners as a comforting benefit for our parents and their busy schedules.   

We are seeking teachers and student teachers to become a part of our team and we encourage you to visit us as we prepare for our grand opening summer 2014. We also welcome partnerships from Early Childhood Education Programs for externships as well.  We are recruiting lead teachers, teacher assistants, foreign language teachers, volunteers, and summer program coordinators. Intelligence Refined Academy is a dream coming to life!  We welcome anyone with a passion for teaching as well as learning from our students and early learners as they will be guiding us through their developmental success!  Thank you for taking the time to read a brief overview of our preschool and please feel free to email any questions or inquiries!!!
