The Growing Years in Burlington

The Growing Years Preschool Learning Center of Burlington is a fun, enriching environment. The building sits conveniently on University Drive. It’s just a few minutes from Lake MacKintosh, and not far from SMC Preschool and Elon University. 

At our Burlington, North Carolina school is a Five Star location offering children the experience of our full-time programs. Your young children will have the opportunity to spend five full days each week with us, Monday–Friday. 

We encourage you to reach the Burlington center by giving us a call at your convenience. We’ll answer all of your questions and help you schedule a tour, so you can get to know the learning center for yourself. Our directors will review your needs and design a rate suited for your own needs. Our preschool curriculum is designed to allow our students to flourish and grow as they continue to develop through their early childhood years.

What parents say

My daughter has been going here since her 2nd birthday (5 y/o now) and she absolutely loves school. When everything shutdown for a while she missed all of her teachers and her friends so much. This will be her last year here (Kindergarten next year) but I'm very grateful she has a place like this for one more year. With COVID going on...a lot of children aren't getting the chance to socialize with their peers, I'm so glad the timing worked out for her to be in daycare a year longer.

We have had all three of our children at The Growing Years over the past 11 years. We have absolutely loved this school - every aspect - the teachers, the curriculum, the atmosphere. Our two kids that are now in elementary school were beyond prepared for Kindergarten both academically and socially. And our third child is four and he could go to Kindergarten tomorrow without hesitation. The school is creative in the classroom at every age and provides a wonderful learning and nuturing environment. Most importantly, my kids looked forward to going to "school" everyday. I would recommend this school to everyone.

My daughter is currently enrolled at TGY and has been since the spring of 2018. We absolutely love it here. They have a great curriculum, they provide healthy meals and snacks, and a healthy and happy environment that is filled with fun and learning. Communication has always been great. I love that it is a locked facility and that there are cameras in each class room so I can see my daughter anytime!

Growing years is a wonderful school. My daughter had learned soooo much since starting to go there. She loves her teacher and shes a wonderful teacher.

Our family is extremely pleased with our son's experience at The Growing Years. Our son loves to go to "school". The staff is caring, professional, knowledgeable and diverse. We placed our son at TGY when he was 2 years old, after having horrible issues with a past childcare facility. So, we were extremely cautious in where we placed him. A year and a half later we are still just as happy and will place our daughter in the infant room in November.
