About Us

Literacy Beginnings

I am Susie Brooks, founder of Veritas Academy. I seek to partner with parents and teachers to positively focus our influence to shape the lives of children starting from Pre-K all the way to 12th grade. Through our emergent literacy program, we are preparing tomorrow's kindergartners through a fun, faith-based child care and Pre-K classical curriculum. My expertise include a doctorate in education and a masters in early childhood, and research in brain development. But most of all, I love children.

Steven Brooks is co-founder and lead teacher at Veritas Kidz. He brings years of experience in children's ministries and holds a masters in inclusive classrooms. Kids are naturally drawn to him and find him entertaining. He loves to see children grow, explore, and develop their own voice and ideas. His high energy and extreme patience can keep kids going for hours at a time. And when it's time for naps, his soothing voice as he reads to them calms and settles them for the rest they need. Veritas Kidz is blessed to have Steven as part of the team.

 


Life at Veritas Kidz

On a typical day, you will find our staff on the floor playing with your child. From answering questions to reading out loud, your child will be loved and cared for just like you would at home. We enjoy the outdoors and take advantage of the vast space on our 10 acres of land and the fenced playground. Children explore the grounds, learn about nature and build forts. In the winter they build with snow and slide on sleds. Your child will spend a few hours a day developing language, literacy and cognitive skills. Together we will explore pre-writing, pre-reading, and numbers. All learning takes a child's development and skills into consideration. Music and art play a role in every day learning. And at Christmas and Easter, parents can see their kids perform in special programs.
