The Gorse Children's Center

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to The Gorse Children’s Center! Our dedicated team of teachers work to foster a love of learning in your child by providing an enriching and unique environment. Our Growing Readers nook is a cozy place to nurture a love of reading, and the dramatic play area sets the stage for imaginative and creative playtime. The outdoor learning areas and gardening boxes are the perfect places for hands-on nature activities, and our walking field trips give your child the opportunity to get outside and explore walking trails, waterfalls, greenhouses, and more. Stop by for a parenting seminar and to take a tour of our center.
