What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"You impressed me on my first visit and I continue to appreciate your wisdom supporting so many young lives at the center. You know your employees and the children well enough to form solutions that support each family. Thank you."

World at their Fingertips

The building blocks to a balanced education.

"When I go into one of our centers, I can immediately tell that learning is happening. You see children in small groups engaged in activities that have been thoughtfully prepared."

Learning at Home

Nature collage

You Will Need:

A collection of leaves, seeds, grass, sticks, feathers, etc. and clear contact paper.

Directions:

Take a walk with your child and collect treasures from the ground. Tape a piece of clear contact paper, sticky side up, to a flat surface. Help your child arrange the treasures on the contact paper. Be cautious that young children don't put small objects in their mouths.

Tip:

This can be done on a table or floor. On the floor, you tend to have closer physical contact with your child.
