Programs & Curriculum

At Smile & Learn, we offer a comprehensive path to prepare your child for elementary school.  We offer developmentally appropriate programs with specialized curriculum for a variety of ages.  We welcome toddlers and children from six weeks to 6 years old.

Infants & Toddlers

Security and consistency are two things our caregivers provide. We make sure your child receives plenty of attention, with daily routines that include responsive play, reading, and of course diapering. Children ages six-weeks to 3 years are welcome.

Preschool & Kindergarden

Making the jump to being in school full-time is a big step. We know children learn at different paces and in their own way, so all school activities are based around each child's individual needs. Children ages 4 to 6 are welcome.

Before & After School

 We know the difficulties of balancing life, work, and children. Smile & Learn provides supervised before and after school services, ensuring your child is safe and cared for. Flexible pick up and drop off times are available. .
