The Learning Gardens Child Development Center, a local leader in early childhood education and childcare, is a licensed and accredited center, receiving a 5-star rating from YoungStar. Through our infant, toddler, preschool, 4k, and school age programs, we work with and support families with infants as young as six weeks old up to age 10. At The Learning Gardens, we believe children thrive in the security and stimulation of a high-quality program which links families and the center together. In doing so, we accomplish our mission of ensuring children acquire the skills they need to become productive members of society. We believe young children learn best through active involvement in an environment which is caring, child-directed, developmentally appropriate, educationally enriching, and embracing diversity. Please see the wonderful environment we will provide your family by taking a virtual tour.
