Children Learn Through Play


Blocks teach our children spatial, color, shape and size discrimination and the ability to create through their outlook of the world around them.


Art is a form of release for young children and a definite way to boost their self image. Allowing children free access to crayons, glue, paper, fabric and scissors allows the child to create a product in which the process was all of their own creativity.


This area of play puts a definite impression on our children's view of the world around them. They are allowed to dress up and make decisions based on truly what we as parents and teachers have instilled in them to know about the values of life, family, and the importance of respecting others. They are encouraged to show compassion and gain compassion.


Mission Statement ~ Our mission is to provide high quality child care and a safe learning environment for children and their families.

Core Values ~ We value parent's trust.~ We value team work and cooperation with parents and staff. ~ We value a clean and safe learning environment.
