From Our Website

We are very proud of the Low Teacher to Child Ratios that we maintain at all times. In addition to the low ratios, our center is staffed with Certified Teachers in each one of our Toddler, Preschool and Pre-K classes. In addition to our school programs, we offer many different enrichment programs for your child. Enrichment programs include a school-wide music class with Music 'N Me, the Morris County Library Monthly Book Loan Program, and various "in house" special events and visitors. MLCDS also hosts several outside programs that families can add to their child's schedule for additional enrichment opportunities.

Once you have seen our center and we've determined availability and a start date, we will provide an enrollment packet which includes a detailed Registration Form, Health Form, Child Information Form and a Parent Handbook. To check on availability for your child or children, please take a moment to complete the Pre-Enrollment Questionnaire with some preliminary information about your child(ren) and your needs. You can return this information to us by mail or e-mail to Once we've determined availability, we will contact you to proceed with the enrollment process or place your name on our waiting list, if applicable.

We provide quality care for Infants, ages 6 weeks to 18 months; Toddlers, ages 18 to 36 months; Preschoolers, ages 3 to 4 years; and Pre-K, ages 4 to 6 years. Classrooms are broken down by age group, and activities are planned for small groups based on the principles of developmentally appropriate practices. When my son is at MLCDS, I feel at ease because I know that he is being treated with love and care from all of the staff. My husband and I truly believe that our son is gaining so much from being part of this school.
