The Child Care Center is a place where your child will be loved and valued, carefully nurtured and guided, and where learning experiences will be ones of joy and success. We provide a comprehensive child-oriented program where the whole person — intellectual, emotional, spiritual, physical, and social, is respected, nurtured, and guided into development. To do so, we apply the educational goals and structure of Creative Curriculum, a nationally respected research-based curriculum.
Our staff is carefully selected to be understanding and responsive to children, as well as trained in child development. Many of our full-time staff have been with the Center for ten years or more. All staff attend ongoing in service training, including KidSaver CPR and First Aid, as well as regular early childhood education seminars.
The Child Care Center is devoted to a basic support of the family, and we welcome parents to participate in our activities and visit us as often as they like.

Know of a program that we should offer? The board is always eager to hear fresh ideas for keeping the children active and engaged in play. We’re especially interested in a music program or a taekwondo that could be offered on-site (qualified concessions only please).
