Children of America®(COA), one of the nation's fastest growing Educational Childcare companies for children six weeks to five years old, is pleased to announce their doors open for business, August 10, 2020. The Marlton School is located at 181 East Route 70, Marlton, NJ 08053.

Children of America brings to Marlton, its one-of-a-kind educational philosophy, COA Mind & Body Matters. Mind & Body Matters approaches early learning through COA's four proprietary programs: COA Just Read, Presidential Fitness, COA Nutrition, STAR Curriculum (Success through Academic Readiness), and many enrichment programs that have proven to dramatically impact the lives of young children. Children of America's educational curriculum is a product of years of research and development in early childcare.

  • The COA approach to Social - Emotional Growth Allows children to engage in social experiences through play, group activities and partnering with other children as they pretend, discover and investigate their learning environment.
  • Intellectual Growth at COA offers experiences that encourage problem solving, decision making and challenges through activities that promote emerging literacy.
  • We promote Physical Growth through a variety of activities; strengthening and refining of the body through eye/hand coordination, eye tracking, coordination of movements spatial relationships and crossing the midline, which leads to emerging reading and writing skills.

Starting at the front door, COA's already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. "The well-being of every child is our top priority now and always", says CEO Ted Hockenberry. "We are proud to serve our communities. With COA, every child will discover the joy of learning and parents enjoy peace of mind. It starts with a healthy, safe environment, informed by CDC guidance, where learning can flourish. It has been our honor to step in and offer stability and reliability to essential workers and critical workers, now we want to open to all families as the country opens back up."

The creation of an engaging curriculum encourages students to adopt a lasting love and pursuit of learning. Questions, curiosity and hands-on learning experiences are encouraged and valued. By implementing fun and purposeful educational-based lessons and activities, COA creates an engaging environment where all children can enjoy the learning process.

CEO, Ted Hockenberry goes on to say "Our process is an ongoing adventure that requires perseverance and support. COA encourages our students to set and reach their educational and personal goals. We develop strong relationships with students and their parents to support their success. From teachers, to curriculum, to events and activities, COA's goal is to provide the tools and resources each student needs to succeed. And by supporting our personnel through continued education we deliver a quality curriculum experience - that sets us apart from any other program in the country." Hockenberry adds, "COA is raising the bar for childcare across the country."

The COA Marlton location is the sixth school the company has built in New Jersey. COA has schools in Clementon, East Brunswick, Sewell, Parsippany, and Sicklerville and plans to open two (2) more facilities in Cinnaminson and Turnersville N.J. in 2020-2021. Hockenberry adds, "The company continues to invest heavily in both its unique facilities and amazing team. It is our goal to provide the very best environment for our children and staff to learn and grow."
