Safe, Nurturing Environment
Children learn best by doing. We teach meaningful content in ways kids get excited about. Imaginative play, songs, crafts, and fieldtrips help bring learning to life.
Lesson goals are based on age and ability. We focus on emotional development through our Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) classroom model. The PBIS model teaches children to be respectful, safe, and responsible.

How does the ChildServe Childcare program work toward equality and non-discrimination?
ChildServe is firmly committed to the concepts and practice of equal opportunity and non-discrimination. We administer our programs for children and our employment practices without regard to race, gender, religion, age, cultural heritage marital status, sexual orientation, political belief, veteran status, national origin, disability,or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law. Our center is inclusive and we will make reasonable accommodations, based on the child’s special needs and our abilities to meet those needs. If your child is in special education at a public school, we require a copy of his or her Individual Education Plan (IEP) or similar document for inclusion in the child’s file. This will allow our teachers to provide the best possible care and learning for your child.
