At Raggedy Ann & Andy Child Care Center our early childhood teachers and teaching assistants understand that each child has different needs and abilities, and that each child learns in his or her own way at an individual pace. Our programs are designed to prepare your child for education within the school system and our philosophy is to empower you with options and choices to help your child succeed at every level of education. Your child’s lifetime of learning and development begins here.

Two’s and Early Preschool
Most two year olds are full of energy and curious about their surroundings, they are also typically at the stage where they are developing their independence. Our early childhood teachers and assistants are trained to help your child achieve their independence by placing an emphasis on development rather than age because each child develops at his or her own pace. We offer activities that are designed to develop mental and physical coordination, specifically concentrating on:
