We Are Inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach to Early Childhood Education.

This unique approach to education offers an environment geared towards the child and holds an image of children as being strong, powerful, rich in potential, and an integral members of the community. Children should be treated with the same respect as adults - honoring their choices and inspirations. We believe this approach allows your child to reach maximum potential, nourishing their curiosities and inquiring minds, and guides them in growing respect for their own self and the world around them.

The things children learn between birth and the time they start kindergarten is critical, for it lays the foundation for their learning and development for years to come.

At Little Scholars Academy of Kannapolis, we offer three programs to serve children ages 3 months through 5 years. All our programs run year round - August through July.

OUR STORY
Hello! I'm Catherine Doberstein,
Proud Owner of Little Scholars Academy
of Kannapolis.

I'm thrilled to provide an amazing place for children to learn and grow.
My first center, Little Scholars Academy of Lake Norman, opened in 2011 in Huntersville, starting with just one 
class and one student. Through a nurturing environment and hands-on Reggio Emilia approach, it has 
blossomed into a thriving preschool beloved by the community.

 

After graduating from the University of Michigan in 2010 with a Bachelor's in Children and Family Studies, 
I moved to North Carolina. While exploring schools to work in, I noticed a lack of independent preschools. 
The area was saturated with franchised daycares that didn't fit my philosophy of what early childhood 
education should be. I knew I wanted to open my own school one day, so I took the leap. Launching Little 
Scholars Academy allowed me to shape the warm, inquiry-based learning environment I envisioned. 
Over the past decade, I've been privileged to serve so many wonderful families.
