In addition to being one of the Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) Five Star rated centers, New Mirawood Academy is also recognized as an Accredited Professional Preschool Learning Environment (APPLE) center. APPLE is a national early learning program accreditation body. New Mirawood is also a Gold Seal rated center.


Established in 1957 as Mirawood Day School, we became New Mirawood School and Child Care Center in 1997.

In 1998 the current management team embarked on a number of program improvement initiatives. Within a few years the center earned and achieved accreditation status from the Accredited Professional Preschool Learning Environment (A.P.P.L.E) accreditation body. For practical purposes, the name was later changed to New Mirawood Academy.

In 2013 we revamped our offerings to ensure a 21st century learning environment, creating our newest program the Center for Literacy Arts and Sciences – CLAS – 501 c3  Charitable Non-Profit  Early Care and Education organization.
