Our Mission

Our mission at A Child's Place Early Learning Center is to empower children to become confident, respectful, lifelong learners. We want to help children see the world as an invitation to learn, grow and live fully; as well as to see a world full of possibilities that are within their reach.

Our Vision

Our Program is designed to help give children the foundation they need to build self-esteem, to encourage exploration, and to reach higher levels of learning. The goal of A Child's Place Early Learning Center is to form a partnership with parents complimenting their primary role in providing care for their children and to ensure that the individual needs and concerns of every child and family are met.

Our Commitment

Our commitment is to provide a loving, nurturing, and safe place for children to begin their journey. We look forward to many years of providing care for your family.
