There are four foundations to our loving Christian environment, where children learn and thrive:
- A family model: Our center features primary care teachers and multi-age care groups. We view staff, children, and parents as extended family and seek to make the center your child's home away from home.
- Intergenerational interaction: Through specifically designed and developmentally appropriate activities, our children learn to appreciate and interact with the residents of the EagleCrest Retirement Community, our Grandfriends.
- Teaching lab: Our center serves as a field experience site for University of Northwestern student teachers. This program raises the adult/child ratio, brings us fresh ideas and keeps our teachers at the forefront of their field.
- Music education: Our music specialist teaches the fundamentals of music, including singing, playing rhythm instruments and creative movement.
The center serves children from 16 months to 5 years of age.
Please contact our office if you are interested in scheduling a tour, getting a list of parent references, or learning more about our price structure and application process.
