Our newly remodeled facility first opened in 1986. We have large classrooms housed in two buildings that are cleaned every evening after hours. We have two playgrounds. Our infant and toddler playground is a shaded area that is separated from the playground used by our older children. It is equipped with age-appropriate equipment. Our large playground is an over-sized area that meets the large-muscle needs of children ages 3 to school age. We provide many types of activities from balance beams to rock climbing and more. We adhere to all playground safety regulations as outlined in our accreditation standards. We have a state-of-the-art kitchen staffed with professional, in-house cooks.
