About Us

Your Child Is in Great Hands

Happy Turtle

Our Philosophy

There is no overestimating the impact of community daycare centers where young children grow and develop in a safe, intentional environment and where they see themselves in the faces of diverse staff and other children in care. 


We will continue to build on the framework already started in your home. Together, we will help children develop and contribute to the world in positive ways.

We believe that children are truly our future and we want help them achieve their full potential.

our goals

We will help prepare your child for kindergarten and beyond, with the social, emotional and academic development they need to succeed. Some of the things your child will learn:

  • count to 100

  • identify and say ABC’s 

  • know home address 

  • know home phone number 

  • recognize two and three letter words 

  • serve and eat with utensils 

  • get dressed (tying, buttoning, & zipping) 

  • learn to recognize and control emotions

  • be a good friend
