Our Philosophy
Children learn through play. Teachers, parents, and community need to form a partnership to encourage positive growth in children. Children develop at different rates and learn in a variety of different ways. We are here to facilitate that learning.

We are a Quality First Center offering a safe place to leave your children at reasonable rates. We are DES Certified and offer scholarships for low-income families through First Things First. We serve two hot meals and a snack daily. Our preschool program prepares your child for kindergarten with an accredited pre-K program. We offer a blance of teacher directed and child initiated activities, with two outside playtimes everyday. We accept children beginning at six-weeks old through 10 years of age.

We are open from 6:00am until 6:00pm, Monday through Friday. Parents can pay the weekly rate for five full days, or choose a daily rate for two or three days a per week.

We have a before and afterschool program for children attending public school. We pick up at Brichta Manzo, Davis, and Tully Elementary schools. During the summer, we offer a summer camp program with both educational and fun activities here at the center. This includes enrichment activities with the public library located at the neighborhood center.

Classrooms are set up with specific focuses: Library, Dramatic, Play, Blocks, Art, Music, Science, Math, and Writing centers. Teachers in toddler classrooms do one teacher directed activity per day, emphasizing colors, shapes, beginning writing activities, beginning numbers, and vocabulary. Teachers in the pre-school focus on numbers, letters, shapes, colors, and writing activities.
