About Us

Organizational History

The organization began in response to the needs of local working parents and children -- a safe, affordable, enriching environment for children to learn and play while their parents worked -- and that need is ever present.

The Day Nursery’s creative play-based program instills a love of learning and encourages children’s continued social, cognitive and emotional development, ensuring that they become life-long learners and achieve success in future formal education.
