We strive to offer families a relaxed but professional environment for the children to grow. We do this by providing a structure that allows creative free play, instructional learning, and loads of encouragement. Here children have cared in a home-like atmosphere that follows a flexible daily routine. Children spend the day enjoying friends, participating in age-appropriate - learning activities, eating healthy meals, playing and exploring outdoors, all within a safe secure home.
Being a private facility, we can accommodate younger children in a small group setting. There are many benefits to having a small group. A small group allows more one-on-one attention so there is a better balance of care. Lowers the risk of illness and disease. The children gain a sense of intimacy and security in our small group. Children here are close in age allowing us to focus more on their development and well-being rather then what you would see in a daycare with more age groups to cater to. Children stay with us for at least 3 years allowing close relationships to form between the child and provider, children with other children, parents and providers, and parents with other parents.
The state of Missouri licenses us to accommodate children between two years to 5 years old.
