Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome! Every day, we strive to encourage your child’s natural curiosity with enriching learning activities. Little scientists can experiment in the dedicated science space, and the Growing Readers nook is a cozy spot to curl up with a good book. The outdoor classrooms and gardening boxes take the learning outside with nature-based activities, and the dramatic play stages encourage creativity and imagination. Our Smart Boards foster an interest in computer science, and the age-specific Movement Matters Zones provide plenty of space for unstructured playtime and team-based exercises. Stop by for a tour to learn more!

Health, Safety, and Wellness at Our Center

Your child’s safety and wellness is our top priority. We continue to monitor state and local public health guidelines, look to our medical expert, and use our considerable experience to guide our health and safety practices. Our centers take important steps to ensure the very best for every child, and the Health and Wellness portion of our World at Their Fingertips® curriculum incorporates lessons about these essential topics into every classroom, every day.
