What We Offer

Creative Curriculum

Our curriculum promotes exploration and discovery. Through a month long investigation, teachers integrate STEM - science, technology, engineering, and math experiences - that help children develop confidence, creativity and critical thinking skills.

Enrichment Activities

Children participate in ongoing activities like music, yoga, soccer led by specialists. We also regularly bring groups like Zoo on Wheels and Puppets Pizazz to the center. And love our field trips to places like the Discovery Museum and Quiver Farms.

Fun and Play Outdoors

Our playground areas have the equipment and space needed to help children exercise, use their imaginations and get the fresh air that is vital to their growing bodies. They love climbing, sliding, and riding in cars as they have fun with their friends!

Over 100 Years of Experience in Early Childhood Education.

For over a century, our staff has been nurturing children and providing excellence in early childhood education with daycare programs for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.

A Top Rated, Nationally Accredited Daycare Program.

We are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the gold standard for early childhood daycare programs across the U.S., and have attained the highest attainable rating of 4 STARS from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Keystone STARS Quality Initiative.

A Professional Staff You Can Trust.

Our Lead Daycare Teachers typically have a Bachelor’s Degree in early childhood education. They are encouraged to participate in professional development programs, to continue to learn and stay on top of current trends in education. Some staff members have been with our organization for 10, 20, and even 40 years.
