Children's Center

Our center is proud to be a 5-Star Rated and NAEYC-Accredited facility.

Our mission is to provide a safe, creative, nurturing environment for your child that fosters his or her desire to learn. We have small group sizes with low staff-child ratios to provide the highest level of care.

Your child will enjoy engaged learning and play with age-appropriate playgrounds, classroom pets, and natural experiences such as hills, water play, and gardens. Best of all, you will have peace of mind knowing that your child is cared for by an educated staff that receives regular first aid, CPR, and ITS-SIDS training.

Our Principles

  1. Children learn through active exploration.
  2. Children initiate their own learning.
  3. Learning takes place through experiences.
  4. Adults facilitate children’s learning.
