Welcome to Way to Grow!

Way To Grow Early Learning Center began in 1988. Since then, Way To Grow has provided a safe, cozy setting where children are nurtured and empowered to learn in their own ways, at their own pace, exploring their own interests.

Our well trained and highly dedicated teaching staff encourage children's natural curiosity and wonder in an environment that allows them to feel safe and free to explore and discover.

Toddler Care

Toddler Care

Learning Through Exploration At Way to Grow

Walking changes everything. Your toddler wants to go everywhere and do everything. At Way to Grow, our well trained teaching take great care to create a well-charted toddler territory geared for exploration, excitement and exercise. Our hands-on child care programs cover as much ground as possible to help shape your toddler’s brain, personality, behavior and health.


Hands-On Learning for Preschoolers

By the time your child approaches three years of age, he or she is ready to learn new skills and progress into our Preschool program. Our program combines Kindergarten-readiness activities with the best early-childhood standards from across the nation to develop critical-thinking skills and stimulate your child’s curiosity.


Way to Grow's Pre-Kindergarten Program

The Pre-K classroom at Way to Grow is designed to help your child make significant developmental gains, like communicating successfully, and working well both independently and in groups. Our well trained teachers will prepare your child for Kindergarten and life beyond.

School Age Care

School Age Programs (5 – 8 years)

Our program for school-age children is the perfect combination of recreation and education. In our safe environment, your child will be presented with opportunities for fun, socializing and learning—they’ll do homework, get some exercise, create projects, participate in group activities and more. Plus, our convenient hours and available transportation to and from school make it easy for them (and you!) to get into a routine.

Way to Grow offers school-age programs during holidays and other breaks from school.
