We have two child care facilities in Watson and Walker, Louisiana. We provide care for children 6 weeks - 12 years old. We are open Monday - Friday, 6:00 am - 6:00 pm.
Our educational philosophy is that children learn best through play. We want them to experience the world around them by exploring materials in a hands-on environment. For example, rather than giving them a worksheet with the letter A and a picture of an apple we will bring in apples and let them touch, smell, and taste the apple. They will get dirty, have fun, and learn....that is guaranteed!
Our "school day" doesn't end at noon because there are unlimited learning opportunities throughout the day. There is no way we could put a stop to learning time, so no matter if they are the first child to arrive or the last to be picked up they are always learning.
"Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn."
- O. Fred Donaldson
