Highest Possible Rating

We have received the maximum possible rating by Paths to QUALITY™, Indiana’s state-wide quality rating system.  The highest level of professionalism in quality care and education is our standard and our commitment to you.

Nationally Accredited by NECPA

We are proud to be among the highest quality early childcare programs in the country.  Our NECPA seal of approval (National Early Childhood Program Accreditation) also means we excel in the areas of:

  • Adult/child interaction
  • Health and safety of the environment
  • Staff framing
  • The relationship between administration and the parents
  • Involvement throughout the community

Exceptional Care from the Brightest Teachers

Many of our teachers have degrees as well as advanced training, such as the CDA (Child Development Credential), making them leaders with advanced knowledge, skills, and abilities.  The early childhood education field is constantly evolving and it’s essential, as educators, to stay current.

Focusing on Each Child to Nurture and Guide Them Better

Education is but one piece of the whole.  Passionate teachers also care deeply about the needs and feelings of every child.  It’s this special care of our nurturing teachers that encourages your child’s greatest growth and development.

Owned and Operated by 2 Generations of Nurses, with a Registered Nurse On-Site

Registered nurses have high standards.  It’s no surprise that both Teri, RN, and her mother, a former nurse, decided to take it upon themselves to provide the community with the kind of quality care that they feel was missing for Teri’s own children.

Parents’ say the key advantages of their nursing expertise are:

  • Exceptionally high standards for health and safety compared to other daycares
  • A preventative approach to childcare
  • The combined experience of two nurses, with over 50 years of combined experience with children in their care
  • A registered nurse on-site to care for your child and to answer any questions you may have

Trusted Advice When It Comes to Health and Well-Being

Developing the whole child means many skills, like learning to refine motor skills and learning to work through intense emotions.  Some children require extra help and we prioritize talking with parents about available resources, many of which are provided by the state for children under the age of 3.

Examples of resources that can be helpful in a preschool setting, when required, include:

  • Speech therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Developmental and behavioral therapy

A Safe and Secure Setting

Your child’s safety is always our first priority.  A security code is required to enter all our buildings.  There are video cameras in every classroom and on the playgrounds too, so that children are monitored by office staff as well as our highly trained teachers.

Convenient Parent Communication App Provides Info in Real-Time

Brighten your day with a picture your child has colored or painted, or get the daily update on feeding, sleeping and diapers to see that your baby’s schedule is running as smoothly as it is at home.  Our “Hi Mama” parent communication app lets you communicate directly with teachers in the classrooms and stay-up-to-date on your child’s day.

Custom Learning Plans and Informative Parent Teacher Conferences

Your child’s preschool learning plan is customized to suit their needs, and we let you know exactly where they stand at the start of each year.  You can also expect regular updates on your child’s progress with scheduled parent-teacher conferences. We lovingly get them where they need to be for Kindergarten.

Collaborating with You for the Specific Needs of Your Child

We work with you in order to meet the individual needs of your child.  In the case of a small girl who didn’t have all the words she needed, we worked with her father and a speech therapist to get her talking, which she is now most happy to do!

Engaging the Children’s Creativity with Arts, Painting, and Music in the Classroom

Children love to create and with their endless ideas come endless possibilities in the classroom. Children lead their own creative process, with their teacher’s guidance, and develop their own ideas.  Music is played in the classroom daily, leading to an environment of peace and creativity.

Building Confidence and Self-Reliance Through Play

Daily self-directed play opportunities, giving children one or two options of where they want to be in the classroom, bolsters their decision-making skills and better judgment.

Some examples of fun, self-directed play opportunities are:

  • Playing dress up with a great selection of clothes
  • Pretend cooking in the little kitchen with pots and pans
  • Playing race car driver, policeman, or princess

Healthy Breakfast, Lunch, and Snacks at No Extra Charge

Proper nutrition is essential for a child’s development.  We provide nutritional meals, and snacks that are low in fat and low in sugar, every day, at no cost to you.
