From Our Website

People often ask why we started Growing Kids - That's easy, we had kids! Once we became parents, our outlook on just about everything changed (as we assume it does for all parents). When we first became parents, we spent a lot of time with other new parents. As we were talking, the topic of child care would come up (a lot!). We were surprised to hear how many parents were not very enthusiastic about their provider. We heard things like, "I guess it's OK" or "my sister's kids went there so I suppose it's good."


When you visit our Infant Room, you'll discover a warm, loving atmosphere for your little one - from 6-weeks old until walking. But this isn't just a baby-sitting site. As your baby grows, our teachers will develop stimulating activities to encourage learning and exploration. And because we maintain strict teacher-child ratios, you can count on your child getting the special attention you expect. You expect the best possible care for your baby, and with Growing Kids Learning Centers, your expectations won't just be met - they'll be exceeded.

Growing Kids Learning Centers are built from the ground up, with one thing in mind, growing kids! At Growing Kids EVERYTHING is kid-friendly because we built each center from a child's perspective. The most current and state-of-the-art Safety and Security features are also designed into each Growing Kids center, inside and out. We design self-contained rooms that have lots of activities and materials, including: bathrooms, large oversized windows for natural light, custom designed sinks and drinking fountains, so kids have access to something that is their size, parent viewing windows and closed circuit TV cameras.


The teachers are absolutely amazing. Andrew gets so excited everyday when he sees his teacher and I know he is loved and cared for by everyone here. He's developing so well and hitting all of his milestones early and I know it's because he feels safe and secure and his teachers help support and challenge him. Growing Kids is FANTASTIC! I believe that choosing to send my child to Growing Kids is one of the BEST decisions I have ever made. Award winning design that is built from the ground up.
