Description: Annie’s ELC has been open since 2007. In our organized center, each classroom’s curriculum prepares our children for the next level, making transitioning to each new level easier for your child. We like to emphasize education, but we also know how to have fun. We celebrate all kinds of occasions including “Grandparents Day”. We also bring in house vendors to Annie’s to entertain our children including clowns and magic shows, nature shows, educational programs, theatrical productions, public library story time and much more!
Our teachers are handpicked to ensure the highest quality of care is given to children who attend our center. The owner, director, and dedicated teachers all work together to create a caring, nurturing, safe, and educational environment that promotes a love for learning.
Where possible, ChildcareCenter provides inspection reports as a service to families. This information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed. We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues. Reports can also be verified with your local daycare licensing office.
