A Child’s Place organizes various activities throughout the year to encourage parental involvement, which provide enjoyable social opportunities for parents, children, staff, and the community. Parental participation and support of the program are vital to cultivating our success as a quality preschool. We hope that your involvement with A Child’s Place proves to be an enjoyable and beneficial experience for you and your child.

Our Goals

✅ To provide a warm, nurturing environment where your child receives quality care and is loved.
✅ To provide an environment that is based on successful experiences, which encourages all children to develop a healthy self-concept.
