Our Philosophy

The first five years of childhood are the most important in development and learning. Our educational curriculum is designed to help children reach their fullest potential. Our programs feature fun, age-appropriate lessons and activities which help develop the whole child: physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. Each child is encouraged to explore and discover at his or her own pace. The children have an engaging variety of learning activities and fun play experiences to choose from, planned with the specific age and interests of the child in mind, all with the goal of preparing each child for the next level of learning.

We are dedicated to providing the care, attention, love, learning, fun and safety that parents have come to expect since 1997.

This family owned and operated center is equipped with long-term experienced and dedicated staff. Our teachers and assistants are prepared to meet the educational and developmental needs of the children in their care each and every day. Our dedication and commitment to the children leaves the parents with a peace of mind.
