Teaching Your Child to Be Safe with Proactive Safety Practices

Under the watchful guidance of teachers, playful reminders like singing the “walking feet” song, are proactive ways to stop accidents from happening. These essential preventative practices are adhered to all of the time and are a fun way for kids to learn and follow safety rules.

Secured Doors And Video Surveillance Keep Children Safe

Anyone entering the facilities do so through a secure entrance, and the area has video surveillance at all times. Another safety precaution is our fenced-in yards, which allow children to play freely outside, in total peace and safety.

Hear What Parents Have To Say...

"Best decision I've ever made!"

Beautiful people who take care of your baby like it's a part of your family. It was the best decision I've ever made in my daughters’ life. Teachers were always happy and they can help you if your baby speaks another language. They will never let your baby cry it out. They give them the best education for school with a spiritual foundation. I could never ever find another day care like this. You will never regret having your kids in this daycare, well worth your money and even more!!
