Rutherford County’s largest and most modern child development center offers 4-star daycare to infants through children age 5. We also offer after-school and summer programs from children up to 12 years of age. Daily programs follow a creative curriculum and consist of interactive learning techniques such as cooking activities, science projects, art activities, and activities preparing them for the transition into a school setting including computer-based learning. The center recently expanded its services with a grant provided by Facebook, by establishing a computer learning lab with interactive Smartboards, iPads, and Mac Books.

Daycare is provided in an inclusive setting that adapts to varying child development stages and progress.

Our staff of Day Care Teacher is among the areas most experienced and well trained.
