Our Child Care Center provides specialized care for the age levels we serve.

For children ages 6 weeks to 3 years, the attention is focused on care, nurturing, and working on the Infant Stimulation Program and Toddler Creative Curriculum. The program involves working with the children’s large and small motor skills, physical development, language, hearing, and visual development, as well as learning from the world around them.

Children ages 3 to 5 years work on the Kindergarten Readiness Program and Creative Curriculum for preschoolers. The program includes letters, numbers, shapes, and color recognition. Large and small motor skills, physical development and language development, pre-math and science, manners, and socialization are also key focal points.

The goals of the School Age Summer program for children ages 5 to 12 years is to develop the skills needed to build self-esteem, engage in new friendships, independence, learn problem-solving skills, and increase creativity.
