Openings are currently available in all age groups.
The vision of the owners, Dennis and Jan Duley of Royal Oak, Maryland, is to provide the highest quality staff and facility to service young children and their families on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. To this end, they have invested their construction and artistic talents, business expertise, and commitment to children, families, and the community.
