Our program has been developed to be a positive experience to enhance self-esteem, social skills, develop motor skills and cognitive learning. These skills are developed through play, music and movement, school readiness activities and learning centers. The children are under the guidance of a caring professional staff. Our center provides childcare for children ages 1 through 5 including preschool classrooms for children in their pre-Kindergarten year.  Our yearly schedule closely follows the Sargent School district calendar. The center is a licensed facility with a maximum of 66 children.
