About The Right Choice Academy In Woodstock
We are an International School based daycare in Woodstock, specializing in the Reggio Emilia and Montessori curriculum. We focus on cultivating curiosity and compassion allowing our children to become passionate, lifelong learners.
We care for children from 6 weeks to 13 years old, providing a range of age-appropriate activities and resources to encourage their development right up until they are ready to embark on their next educational adventure.
Our philosophy is based on culture and creative learning! Blending indoor, outdoor and international classrooms and environments, we can create a space where children feel safe, empowered and ready to learn!
We believe that emphasizing culture and diversity helps children to learn compassion and tolerance as well as have an appreciation of different cultures and traditions. Our world is becoming increasingly globalized and we aim to give children meaningful interactions with the world around them, developing their curiosity and appreciation for multiculturalism.

The Right Choice Academy offers a unique curriculum that aims to provide children with a multicultural and diverse learning experience. We are an international school where children learn about a different country every month, centering our curriculum around the culture, history, language, geography, and customs of that country. This type of education not only allows children to develop a broad understanding of the world but also encourages them to appreciate and respect the differences among people from different countries and cultures.
At The Right Choice Academy, we have implemented an International School Curriculum. We provide children with an enriching and unique educational experience. By learning about a different country every month, children can develop a broad understanding of the world and appreciate the diversity of cultures and people.
Each month is dedicated to learning about a different country. The curriculum is designed to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the country, including its history, culture, and geography. Children will learn about the country’s customs, traditions, and way of life through a variety of age-appropriate activities.
Our International School Curriculum is centered around the country of focus for that month. For example, if the country of focus is France, students would learn about the French language, history, geography, culture and customs. This approach allows students to gain a deeper understanding of the country and its people and helps to develop children’s critical thinking and problem-solving skills - setting them up for future academic and personal success.
Our children also have the opportunity to visit the country of focus for that month. This allows children to experience the country firsthand and see the culture and customs they have learned about in the classroom. Visiting the country provides students with an unforgettable learning experience and helps to deepen their understanding and appreciation of the culture.
As well as visiting the country of focus, we also visit other child care centers in that country. This allows our children to see how other child care centers are run and learn about the cultural similarities and differences. Visiting another child care center also promotes cross-cultural understanding and helps children appreciate the diversity of education and childhood experiences around the world.
By learning about different countries and cultures, children develop an understanding of the world and the people who live in it. This understanding creates an appreciation for diversity and promotes respect and tolerance. It encourages the development of well-rounded, successful children.
