About the Provider

Description: Welcome to Dream World Academy! We're excited that you have chosen us to be a part of your family. We believe that every child deserves a warm, loving, clean and safe environment to help nurture and develop them as they explore the world around them. Our center's main objective is to provide a positive atmosphere to enhance social, physical, intellectual, and emotional growth of children. Your child will be provided with age appropriate activities daily to promote cognitive development.

You may wonder what makes us different from the rest. Well, we are a faith based facility that encourages children to reach for the stars. If you can dream it you can achieve it...the sky is the limit. We believe that every child should be given a chance to dream no matter how far the dream seems to be away. As a child, I had a dream of owning my own daycare. With encouragement from my mom, dad and others I believed that one day it was going to come true. When I got married, my husband and I always believed we would own our own daycare center. Although we had our struggles great and small we did not give up, and today we are living our dream. Come by and see our DREAM. We look forward to meeting you soon!
