Feeding Children Well

We believe proper nutrition is crucial to a child’s development and we are committed to providing healthy and fresh foods for your little ones. We serve food that is organic, vegetarian, free of preservatives, GMOs, dyes, and any other harmful additives.

Focused On Health

Everything we do from cooking to cleaning, playing to learning is carefully planned and designed to be earth friendly. We promise to use only natural and biodegradable cleaning products all throughout our facility.

Learning Through Play

We use a research-based, child focused curriculum that teaches your little one through exploring and playing. The HighScope curriculum has a proven record of paving the way for children’s school and adult success.

a safe and loving environment for the children I am entrusted to care for… I
