The Importance of Early Education

Our goal at Daycare Plus is to create a life long love of learning. All of our classroom's main focus is to create an inviting area where your child feels safe and loved. Our curriculum is child-centered allowing them to discover and explore to learn more about the world around them. This has a big focus on encouraging pretend play. We have bi-weekly themes that change to immerse your child in an imaginary world from a Dinosaur Dig Site to a Grocery Store and even to Outer Space! All while tracking your child's developmental milestones, allowing us to create a plan to help them succeed in the future.
