  • Infant Daycare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year). Our infant daycare program provides a warm, safe, and nurturing environment for your child to grow and thrive.
  • Toddler Daycare (ages 1 to 2). In our toddler daycare program, toddlers start exploring the world and teachers utilize our skill-based curriculum to encourage play, language, and discovery.
  • Early Learners (ages 2 to 3). We introduce children in our Early Learners program to activities that develop their language skills, encourage a love of literacy, and promote a healthy lifestyle.
  • Preschool (ages 3 to 4). In this preschool program, we help your child participate in stimulating learning opportunities. Our responsive preschool teachers understand the natural curiosity of children at this age and engage them in activities that promote cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical development.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5). In our Pre-K program, we make sure that your child has the confidence and skillsets to feel comfortable and confident entering kindergarten.
  • Before and After School Care (ages 5 to 12). Our before and after school care gives parents peace of mind of knowing their kids are in a safe, fun environment that promotes their well-being.
