A safe place for your kids to learn, grow, and explore in our day care program

Preparing your children for their future education

Working a day job, taking care of younger siblings, or simply trying to get things organized at home can be really difficult if you’re also trying to take care of your preschooler.

Gingerbread House Early Learning Center is open all year from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday to help you out, whenever you need us.

We give children the opportunity to explore, learn and grow in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment.

Our day care offers kids up to the age of six the chance to start developing their skills and learn about the world so they’re ready for school.

Get in contact with our team of dedicated childcarers today to learn more about our day care program.

What does our day care program include?

Our day care program combines both teacher-directed and free-choice activities for children. It’s designed to meet the unique needs of the children we take care of and our daily schedules are posted in every classroom each morning.

Some of the activities we teach in our day care program include math, science, art, literacy, and of course outside play.

Kids also enjoy quiet time which is a time in the day where the kids get to relax, listen to soft music, read books, or even just sleep if they want to.

Gingerbread House Early Learning Center also participates in the USDA-funded program which provides all the children in our care with breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack.

Here’s an example of one of our daily schedules:

7:30 am - 8:00 am
