Our building is surrounded by a high privacy fence with state of the art age appropriate play equipment for children to use their imaginations and explore. Parents receive a security code to enter into the classroom hallways. Our cook prepares nutritious meals and accommodates food allergies and restrictions. We have very strict hiring guidelines and procedures when adding new team members. The new team members receive extensive training prior to going into the classroom and also have on-going training within the classroom with an experienced teacher.

Welcome Meet the Team »

Our center is much more than a child care center, our program provides a rich, nurturing environment for your child's cognitive, social, emotional and physical growth. We make learning fun! Children are respected and our teachers work in partnership with families to challenge each child. We become an extension of your family and we are proud to be a part of this each and everyday.

I delivered my first child in April 2013. Going back to work after having my son was a very emotional time for me. I was asking my self questions like "will he be happy?",  "will he get the attention I would like him to have?", "will he learn the things that he should be learning at his age?",   "will he be safe?".  All questions that every parent probably asks themselves as they leave their child for the first time with strangers. The first day I dropped him off, I cried.  Joseph of course didn't know any better. When I picked him up that afternoon,  he had a big smile on his face and was smiling at all the teachers.   That day, I knew he was going to be happy there. I often bring my son to school and sit in the room for a few minutes and watch the kids play and I can see that the teachers really care about the kids. I feel assured that my son is being well taken care of and he is definitely learning every day.  That makes me a happy Mommy! - Lisa W., Mother
