Our Mission

Our mission is to help children develop the skills necessary to solve problems in the real world and foster each child’s innate curiosity and joy of discovery, while exposing their minds to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) concepts through play.

Come Visit Us

Although we’re not their mothers, we care for them each day.
We cuddle sing and read to them, and watch them as they play.
We see each new accomplishment, and help them grow and learn.
We understand their language, and listen with concern.
They come to us for comfort, and we wipe away their tears.
They proudly show their work, we give the loudest cheers.
We are not their mothers, but our roles are just as strong.
We nurture them and keep them safe, though maybe not for long.
We know someday the time may come, when we will have to part.
But we know each child we’ve cared for, is forever in our hearts!
