We’re excited to be a member of your community and are committed to giving your family quality programs for every stage of life.

The time your child spends in our care supports your family values, expands your child’s world, and provides solid learning through play and structured activities that allows your child to build on accomplishments and master new, age-appropriate skills. 

You can count on us to give excellent, affordable care as we partner with you to create and sustain a trusting environment for your family’s most precious members: your children.

New Lakeville Early Childhood Learning Center

Serving families with children ages six weeks to kindergarten, the Lakeville site is conveniently located in the Kenrick Commons with easy access to I-35 and County Rd 46.  Our infant, toddler, and preschool classrooms, along with our playground equipment, will feature all new construction and modern design.  

Bright, colorful classrooms include interactive whiteboards to accommodate different learning styles: tactile, auditory and visual. And our Kids Report app keeps you connected to your child’s daily activities.
