About the Provider


In our high-quality inclusive developmental child care program, you will see children playing, exploring and experimenting with materials. Daily classroom activities are individualized to support each child's specific development and needs. Learning centers are used to facilitate independent learning in cognitive development and fine motor, social/emotional and self-help skills. The children enhance their skills and knowledge while they play in our sensory integration gym, on our outdoor fenced in playground, in our full size gym and take fieldtrips and walks. Activities may be modified to meet children's special needs by adapting the environment and learning materials and providing specialized equipment.
