Enchanted Child Care & Preschool
Our Goal and Philosophy
To see the children grow to their fullest potential by being supportive, nurturing and loving. As we bridge the gap from home to school, we strive to guide children positively, by helping them build their self-image and social skills in a loving home environment. We implement our curriculum to meet the developmental readiness of each child. The individual expression of each child will be encouraged and directed in ways that will build confidence and responsibility.​​​

We believe that this will allow each child to develop his / her given potential. The child is encouraged to grow socially, physically and intellectually. The early years of a child's life are important in developing skills for understanding the concepts of language, art, math, science, reading, and motor skills.

We will seek to form a close relationship with the parents or guardian of each child. As a primary caregiver, we believe that the parent is most familiar with the unique needs of their child. Therefore, we will maintain a supportive role to the parent and appreciate your valuable insight that will enable us to provide for each child.

Our Classrooms
Infant and Toddler classrooms
At all of our facilites we separate our 2 years and under classrooms info infant, 6 weeks to 1 years old or walking, and toddler, 12 months to 23 months of age.  
The infant stage is marked most radically with the infant’s need to develop as unique individuals with behaviors and growth changes ever present. Our infants have their own classroom and specially trained staff who give our babies lots of attention and love.  We keep a low ratio of infants to caregivers and offer lots of verbal and physical interaction between kids and our caregivers. We have age-appropriate toys as well as books. Our daily activities include singing, talking, reading, music,  as well as on-the-floor playtime activities.

We have bouncers, swings, activity mats, and rocking chairs so that each baby gets lots of physical contact and individual attention. The infant program provides for the following goals:
