Smart Start is comprised of teachers, teacher assistants, and care providers that have no other main concern than your child, his/her development, safety and happiness. Our program meets the needs of ages 6 weeks to 3 years old. Here we provide opportunities for your children to explore and discover in our spacious indoor activity areas. Every day, your children will be involved in arts and crafts for the development of fine motor skills as well as learn from our academic curriculum. We also have a large outdoor area for the development of gross motor skills.
We aim to be different than most large daycare centers as they may not have that close connection between the children and the teachers. The children in our care are a large part of our lives and we quickly have grown into a happy family known as Smart Start.
Our spacious indoor and outdoor play areas are in a clean and comfortable atmosphere. The physical environment of the classrooms promotes learning, socialization and individuality through playful and structured activities.
Your child will be in a safe and nurturing environment in your absence. Children engaging in activities to help focus thinking, preparing them for exploration in early experiences. Additionally, toys and equipment are cleaned and checked daily to maintain our standard of excellence.
