Philosophy & Curriculum

When children’s needs are met, they will grow, flourish and learn. There is no greater need than the need to belong. To have purpose, to love and to be loved is the foundation on which we build security, knowledge, and respect. Our needs-based approach means children feel connected and loved. Our home-like atmosphere promotes freedom and creativity that nurtures minds and hearts.

Creative Curriculum

“The Creative Curriculum” is a state standards-based curriculum, and forms the basis of our program. The curriculum ensures that classrooms are designed in such a way that children are actively engaged in learning as they play and move throughout the environment.

Weekly Themes

In addition to “The Creative Curriculum”, we have our own unique themes-based program that spans all aspects of literacy, phonics, math, science, art, social and emotional development, gross and fine motor skill building, and character development. In this program, children learn through developmentally appropriate activities in themes such as “Under the Sea”, “Down on the Farm”, and more!

Daily Routine

As your child’s number one teacher, we want you to stay connected to what we are doing each day. That is why we have an app that we use to provide you with photos and updates every single day. You can even communicate with your child’s teacher via messaging on the app.

Our Facilities

We invite you to schedule a tour of our facilities.
We chose a woodland theme in our center to
be inviting and comfortable for children.
This theme stretches from room decorations
to worksheets and crafts.

…My son has enjoyed all of the teachers he had over the year and they were all so kind to help me with potty training. Being a full time employee, full time single mom, plus running a real estate business I really appreciated all they did to help me with that!…

This daycare goes above and beyond my expectations when it comes to taking care of my child… They have a wonderful app that allows the parent to check-in on your child that provides their daily activities, naps, meals and more with videos and photos.
