Choosing a caregiver for your child can often be a major source of anxiety for parents.

We strive to incorporate your parenting beliefs and work together with you, to encourage child development and help your child thrive as they reach each new milestone.

As our mission, we are committed to providing the highest quality child day care services possible for your children. Nellie's Treehouse goes beyond day care and develops the whole child, while focusing on teaching and learning. It is our belief that children need an environment that stimulates their imagination, fosters independence and socialization and encourages natural curiosity.

We've done our homework, and we know what makes a day care center great. We've created a structured schedule that attends to all major child development needs, guiding your child from physical activity to quiet reading time to social group and individual activities. We also have a meal program, so your child will get snacks to stay nutritious. And our free time makes sure that your child has the chance to express him or herself. That's how we make the difference with early childhood education!

We offer convenient hours for our child day care & preschool programs.

As one of the best early learning centers in the Amherst, NH, area, the amenities we offer are meant to make things easier for YOU. These include extended hours from 6:00am to 7:00pm Monday through Friday. We know life does not happen on a 9 to 5 schedule very often. Our extended hours give you some breathing room in your schedule.

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

  • Diapers and Wipes
  • Meals and Snacks
  • Extended Hours
  • Enrichment Programs
  • Coffee to Go

Diapers and wipes are provided through age two; meals and snacks are provided from age 2 and up. They include breakfast, lunch and three snacks each day. All are served with milk, juice or water. The daily menu is packed full of nutritious foods and is designed to help teach the children how to make healthy choices; enrichment programs are designed to encourage curiosity and stimulate their day. We bring in outside programs to enhance the learning in the rooms. From story-tellers to sing-a-longs to small cuddly animals; we started Coffee to Go! Because sometimes, getting everyone out of the house is a challenge. Grab a coffee and some breakfast after you drop off the kids.

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.

If you have a low keyed child this is the perfect environment, if you have an independent spirited child this will not be for them.

Pros: We had one teacher there we absolutely loved and were sad to leave.

Cons: We were there almost a year, until the child started having temper tantrums and she was asked to leave because the staff wasn't trained to deal with it. Then they call in outside sources to get free education for their staff making the family look bad.
