Preparing your child for success in school & beyond

The Growing Years specializes in serving infants through school-aged children. For our littlest ones, we provide structured care and simple activities to stimulate their senses and motor skills. For our preschoolers and up, we offer a balanced daily curriculum that encourages active learning and independent thinking.

It’s our philosophy that children blossom most when their curiosity is nurtured. Ninety-percent of brain development happens before age 5, our goal is to stimulate the brain to create good skills and curiosity that will help children build skill to be life-long learners. From infants and toddlers to preschool and school age, The Growing Years preschool programs encourages creativity through a world of imagination and wonder. Early childhood development is a foundational piece of our internal structure, as our curriculum provides an early childhood education unlike any other.
