We pursue personal growth

A Balanced Curriculum Meets All Your Child’s Unique Needs

All of our age-appropriate activities combine the very best teaching methods. These are individualized to meet your child’s own unique needs. Your child’s curriculum includes:

Personalized Learning Plans Bring Out the Best in Your Child

Your child’s portfolio portrays their academic progress; you’ll love getting updates on how well they are doing! This individual portfolio allows teachers to plan top-notch personalized lesson plans for your child.

Themes Provide A Fun, Creative Learning Atmosphere

Weekly themes, like an epic Jurassic Park “Dinosaur Dig,” completely immerse your child in fun and creative learning experiences. Through such themed weekly activities, your child will explore:

An Additional Teacher in Classrooms For Extra Support

The center has added a third team member to every preschool and toddler classroom. Although not required, children benefit greatly. All children deserve the extra attention, love, support, and hands-on help that this additional teacher provides.

An On-Site Housekeeper Means Supreme Cleanliness

The center truly goes above and beyond when it comes to cleanliness! Classrooms are kept orderly and organized, and always smell wonderfully fresh. An on-site housekeeper cleans all toys from each classroom once a week, and a cleaning service deep cleans every night.

The facility is very clean, which is so important.

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.

Outdoor Play At The Spacious Manthey Park Nearby

Your child enjoys the great outdoors at the beautiful Manthey Park, only two blocks away, once or twice a week (depending on their age). This outing is a much-anticipated time for some sunshine and outdoor playtime!

In-House Special Events Broaden Your Child’s Horizons

Visits from community members, such as the fire department, Riverbend nature center, and the Rad Zoo, are exciting ways for your child to learn more about their community and the world. We host such in-house special events at no extra cost to you.

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!!
