Ave Maria Child Development Center managed by Bright Horizons

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to Ave Maria Child Development Center & Preschool! Why our center? We like to think of ourselves as more than child care and early education, but as a community of families; where teachers help children find the confidence to learn. Here, your child can become a reader in our book corner; a grower in our garden; and a scientist and an artist in our outdoor STEM lab and Art Studio. For moms and dads we also have an active parent partnership group with educational discussions and extended hours for those who need to work a little later. We would love to have you drop by so we can give you a tour!
