About the Provider

Description: Thank you for your interest in Grow-Ville Community Day School. Here at Grow-Ville Community Day School, we believe that we have the recipe for happy, healthy children. First, we begin with a safe, caring atmosphere that will encourage independence, self-esteem, success, love and respect. Next, we add opportunities for the development of fine and gross motor skills through the use of art, music and physical activities. Our recipe also calls for a structured, age-appropriate curriculum designed to chronologically enhance learning and social interaction from ages two to six. The last, important ingredient that must be included is you - because your child responds best and learns most from you, we plan to work hand-in-hand with parents to complete our recipe.
