MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Everything about Centner Academy preschool is bright, colorful and designed to increase happiness to lead to academic performance. The school’s founding principles are a holistic approach to wellness, kindness, and education. “You want to see them balancing, looking at something, being able to focus on something else simultaneously, that way their brains are acting from the brainstem in a natural way and they are able to focus their attention elsewhere like you would sit in a classroom, look at the teacher and write.” You can call it the brainchild of power couple Leila and David Centner. When they couldn’t find exactly the school they wanted for their daughter, they built it. The private school opened in Miami last fall and today has about 300 preschoolers to eighth-graders enrolled.
