6:30 am To 6:00pm     Monday - Friday

Welcome to an innovative program for infants through preschoolers that combines the comfort of small-group settings with the social advantages of center-based care. Our philosophy to encourage all aspects of children’s growth (social, emotional, cognitive and physical) in a developmentally appropriate program tailored to children’s needs. We provide an environment that is loving, nurturing, responsive and enjoyable, helping to make your child’s first educational experience a positive predictor of future success. We also believe that the quality of a program is not determined by its length per day or its sponsorship. A Child’s Place feel the major determinant of the quality of an early childhood program is the degree to which the program is developmentally appropriate. We at A Child's Place strive to give our children an appropriate program, according to his/her level of maturity.

With our Keyless Entry System we take control of building access and security at our center by allowing entry only to authorized staff and families. Unique ID codes are assigned to each person eliminating the cost and hassle of lost keys or magnetic swipe cards. Codes may be disabled at any time providing a safe secure environment for children and peace of mind for parents. In addition to the entry system, exiting the facility requires two hands operation that limits this task to an adult so our kids are unable to leave the center without adult supervision.

A Child's Place is a spacious bright clean Center. We know that cleanliness plays an essential part in keeping kids healthy. Schedule a Visit! 941-639-4422
