Programs Offered

  • Infant Programs (6 weeks-1 year)

    Infant Programs (6 Weeks-1 Year)

    When your infant is in our care, we are committed to providing a nurturing and caring environment that meets your needs and the needs of your child. As your infant grows and changes – which happens on a daily basis at this stage – we make changes, too, so development and learning unfolds naturally.

  • Toddler Programs (1-2 years)

    Toddler Programs (1-2 Years)

    Toddlers are explorers on the road to learning. They walk all over, eat table food and often take just one nap a day. In a safe and nurturing environment, your little adventurer will find his voice, make new friends and develop confidence in newfound abilities.

  • Discovery Preschool Programs (2-3 years)

    Discovery Preschool Programs (2-3 Years)

    Let us help your 2-year-old develop her independence and confidence in a setting that encourages a sense of community. We plan your child's activities based on a program grounded in early childhood fundamentals. Your young learner will increase her language ability, practice early counting skills and learn to cooperate with friends through group activities.

  • Preschool Programs (3-4 years)

    Preschool Programs (3-4 Years)

    Preschool kids are in the process of becoming confident learners. We take their confidence to the next level with hands-on education. Your 3- to 4-year-old child is ready for structured learning activities that touch on early literacy, math, science and social studies. Our program balances these subjects with opportunities for independent exploration – and a healthy dose of running, jumping and dancing.

  • Prekindergarten Programs (4-5 years)

    Prekindergarten Programs (4-5 Years)

    With our expert educators guiding the way, your child will feel confident taking the big step into the kindergarten classroom. With lower student-to-teacher ratios, your child will get more individualized attention. Our comprehensive, full-day kindergarten program encompasses reading, language, math, science, arts and physical fitness to keep your child excited about school. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so your child will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.

Learning Adventures &
Enrichment Programs

  • Math

    Math Adventures

    Math Adventures teaches concepts such as geometry, numbers, measurement, and probability. Your child will learn about length, height and weight, as well as shapes and solids. Math is everywhere, and giving your child every advantage now will add up to success later in life.

  • Phonics & Reading

    Phonics & Reading Adventures

    Set your child up for success with literacy through phonics, the study of letters and sounds. We engage your child with customized books, games and activity cards to help him master the basics of vowels and blending syllables, giving him confidence and an even greater command of the language.

My daughter attended from infants through jr. preschool and I couldn't be happier with our experience at the center. From the dedicated leadership and outstanding teachers to the warm and inviting classrooms, classmates, and parents, our experience has been great. The center has always been a place where I've been confident that my daughter matters and where the center director and teachers have gone out of their way to accommodate any special needs she might have. All of her teachers have been bright, caring, and thoughtful. They have managed to teach her routine and structure without stifling an ounce of her free spirit and curiosity. Highly recommended! - Jennifer H., Mother
