The administration office for both Children's
Center sites is located here.

What makes this site unique? This is the largest of The Children's Center sites, but the class sizes remain the same. Each age group has their own room, for example, one year olds, two year olds, three year olds, etc. So
your child moves up to a new classroom every year
with children of the same age.

The school age program is offered before school, after school and non-school days. Plus, the enriched summer program is jam packed with activities and trips.
