Illness/Dietary Concerns

Children often get sick. You should keep your child at home throughout the duration of the illness so as to expedite the healing process and avoid getting the other children sick. When your child is ready to return to childcare, we would appreciate a note from their doctor indicating that they are free from contagions.


We understand many children have dietary restrictions due to allergies, religious beliefs and/or personal preferences.  Shoulc you wish to limit or forbid certain food items for any reason, please notify us beforehand and we will ensure that no offensive food item is served to your child.


Your Infants

We provide a safe, loving nurturing "home away from home" where your child can grow and learn every day by exploring and making new discoveries. 

Our infant program helps babies grow, gain mobility, and develop intellectual and social skills for future success.

We are committed to making this first transition away from home easy and natural for you and your child as they take thier first steps.

Infants are taught sign language early on, this helps their communication between each other as well as the teacher before their vocal cords are fully developed.  Our Infants are impressively on a schedule, which helps with transitions between home and at the center.

Your Toddlers

As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment.

Our unique curriculum is based on the philosophy that young children learn best through hands-on experiences. Each day is filled with fun activites that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends.

Toddlers are taught their full names, birthday, spanish colors, numbers, alphabet and simply how to put on their own jackets as well as going potty on the "big potty"

Your Preschooler

As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world.  Our program offers activites to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners.

Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts.  A healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active, too.

Your School Ager

We provide a safe and entertaining summer camp program, keeping your school ager on track throughout the summer.  Teachers work with the school agers on building their sense of community.  Many science projects are conducted as well as outside nature activities.  Reading incentive programs are put in place for keeping your child on track.  While children have a blast meeting new friends and interacting with other children throughout the summer it is important to keep them engaged in activity!
