Three young children smiling while in child care


We provide professional care you can trust for children from infancy through school age. We provide each child with a healthy breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack. While with us, we will provide developmentally appropriate activities for each child. Our licensed and certified staff offer exceptional care in a fully accredited and highly rated program.


One on one attention is essential in early development, and our smallest children receive plenty of it; babies and toddlers are cuddled, rocked, and played with. Children are encouraged to learn though exploring their surroundings, age appropriate toys, and interacting with other kids. To develop language skills, teachers speak with and read to the children in our care.


Everything is exciting to a preschooler. We balance free play, large and small group activities, and cognitive and physical development. We build language, math, art, music, and science skills in our lessons to increase the love of learning in the children in our care. Our goal is to make every story, and moment of play an adventure.

School Age

During the school year, our before and after school care provides homework help, breakfast, snack, and time for play. Over the summer, our full day program provides educational opportunities, field trips and plenty of time for outdoor play.
