"The first 5 years of development are so crucial for learning. This is the time that the foundation for learning is laid. It is so much more than just learning colors, shapes, numbers, and letters. It involves all areas of development: social, emotional, physical, language, communication, cognitive and creative skills."
- Marjorie E. Pritz
"Children enter this world ready to learn. Professionals working in early childhood want your child's early learning experiences to be positive, joyful, and productive. We look forward to meeting, learning, and growing with your children!"
