About Our Programs
Our child care programs are designed for children aged 6 weeks through 12 years old.

Our passionate teachers treat your children like they’re family—nurturing, playing and educating the whole child. We know that these early years are essential.

Based on years of experience and research, our daycare programs are specifically tailored to each developmental stage and designed to cultivate a lifelong love of learning in every unique child. We employ active-learning curriculum to stimulate cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth, and we know how important it is to keep everyone involved. That’s why we schedule parent meetings, and provide frequent reports of your child’s activities and progress. At PCA preschool, we make learning fun!
