If you are considering an educational and loving environment for your child, we welcome you to our website and encourage you to email or visit our contact page to set up a tour of our center.
Transforming young lives through a Christ-centered program that is committed to the physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual development of each child.
Learning through play is the heart of our curriculum. The emphasis is on helping children to interact, cooperate and grow together in community. We create a healthy environment for children to learn problem solving skills and explore the world around them.
Best practice is a technique or methodology that, through experience and research, has proven to reliably lead to a desired result. A commitment to using the best practices in early childhood is a commitment to using all the knowledge and technology at one’s disposal to ensure success.
Our staff is dedicated to providing a caring and positive atmosphere for children by creating a warm, happy and safe environment for all. Curriculum and activities are based on appropriate social, emotional, mental and physical levels of development. In addition, Infant/Child CPR and First Aid training is required of all staff.
