"Helping To Make Their Early Years The Best Years!"
Early Years provides a wonderful place for your child to grow and develop in a warm and nurturing environment. We believe that our children need to feel secure and important at all times! We build on a strong foundation by providing learning, adventure, and guidance. Children will grow in an environment that invites and encourages their curiosity and questions as well as provides outlets for them to express themselves. We encourage thoughtful and respectful interaction between all people involved with our center making children feel comfortable to open up and take life in! 
 
Parents are a key factor in creating a successful child care program. Through parental involvement we are able to meet the needs of our families. We think that families should work with us as a team to provide an environment that facilitates the growth of children into well-adjusted individuals with positive self-images.

This time of life is truly the beginning of a journey. Our Nursery room will provide a nurturing atmosphere for a comfortable transition for you and your child. Everything an infant encounters is a learning experience. At Early Years we surround your child with stimulating tools to encourage curiosity and growth, as well as the comfort to build confidence in the steps they take. Each day will be filled with individual conversation, music, and singing to develop communication skills. Through age appropriate art projects and hands on activities, children will develop and enhance their senses. Feeding and sleeping schedules are tailored to each individual child to coordinate with their home schedules. Daily reports are completed for each child.
 
 
As you may know, toddlers are very busy at this time in their life. They learn through playing and exploring. Early Years provides a wide variety of activities each day to promote your child’s natural curiosity and imagination. Each room has its own climbing and sensory area to develop large and small motor skills. Children will take part in art projects, music, and story time throughout the day, and not to forget outdoor time! Successful interaction at any age is a top priority at Early Years. This is the time for positive examples of behavior, whether it is parent to teacher, teacher to child or between kids, respect and thoughtfulness is highlighted and role modeled.

Our teachers....​​

The education backgrounds of our teachers qualify them with various degrees in Early Childhood Development, Elementary Education, Pre-Primary and Child Development Associates. The years of experience and on-the-job training along with their various degree is how Early Years standards are set for our teachers.

Continuing Education-all staff of Early Years are required to complete annual training which involves all aspects of the program specifically geared to the age group of children they work with. This includes CPR, First Aid, Emergency Preparedness, Mandated Reporting, Curriculum, Behavior  Guidance, Assessments, Abusive Head Trauma and Sudden Unexplained Infant Death Syndrome.

 
Infant and Toddler
Preschool 
Our theme based preschool program consists of three, four and five-year-olds. We have developed a program that is able to serve the needs of the children, promote learning, exploration and imagination. Activities are age appropriate and groups of children rotate through different interest and learning centers. Included in the day they go outdoors for scavenger hunts, nature walks, and physical activity. Again, thoughtful, respectful interaction your children will thrive, developing positive self-esteem and important social skills. 
School-Age
 
Kindergarteners and After-school age children: (Ages 5 to 9 years) Early Years' program is set up to be fun and loosely structured. We offer care for your child before and after school, during holiday breaks and throughout the summer! Children coming from school will have opportunities to relax, unwind, and have fun. They will also have opportunities to take part in projects that challenge their creativity and imagination. Our technology and math center is specialized for this group of children to expand their problem solving and decision making skills. The indoor gym provides the space they need for supervised physical activities and daily time outdoors enables them to let off some steam after a hard days work.
