Childcare & Preschool Programs

  • Infant Childcare (ages 6 weeks to 1 year). In this infant childcare program, we use a partnership approach to involve even the busiest parents in their infant’s first learning experiences.
  • Toddler Childcare (ages 1 to 2). This unique toddler childcare program for toddlers accommodates the rapid cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical growth of children ages one to two years old.
  • Early Learners (ages 2 to 3). Our skilled teachers cultivate growth in nine different learning areas in our Early Learner program.
  • Preschool (ages 3 to 4). In this preschool program, teachers, staff, and parents work together to build a strong foundation for your child’s lifelong education.
  • Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4 to 5). In preparation for kindergarten, kids in our Pre-K program enjoy a comprehensive curriculum that ensures their readiness for the transition into elementary school so that they can succeed in kindergarten.
  • Before and After School Care (ages 5 to 12). This program includes homework help and a ton of fun activities to ensure your child has a good time. During Teacher Development days and school holidays/vacations, we offer a full day program to school-age students.
