It's important for a center to be flexible — letting you pick up and drop off your child at different times, for instance — but it should also have clearly established regulations for everything from operating hours to how to handle emergencies included in the tuition

We bring in outside programs to enhance the learning in the rooms.

When you are looking for a caregiver or day care center, you need to make a list of qualities. This helps you decide what early childhood center is right for you. The International Nanny Association (INA) recommends that you interview any prospective hire at least twice and that you conduct a criminal background check, which is usually done by most placement agencies.
Early childhood education is a critical time period for young children. If you are a parent that is at work all day and can't afford a nanny, consider coming to Nellie's Treehouse. Your child will be able to socialize with other children, make friends, and receive important visual stimulation that is necessary for growth. A child absorbs so much at the Pre-K and infant level. Here at Nellie's Treehouse they will be able to learn even more with our help.
If you are looking for a nurturing, loving environment for your child, where they are encouraged to express their ideas through developmental curriculum, please give us a call to schedule a tour of our school. We also offer flexibile part-time child care as well.
