Everything we do at Day Early Learning is aimed at nurturing each child’s social, emotional and educational needs. Our ultimate goal is not only to prepare your child for kindergarten, but also to inspire a lifelong learning journey. Well-educated and trained teachers ensure that your child will be in the best hands possible.

What was the last moment that caused you to stop and remember why you love teaching and working with children?
I recently had a child in my room that was very shy and scared of new people and placed when she started. After a few weeks of helping her acclimate, she has really found her voice and started showing me all of the words in her vocabulary. She then, very quickly, started picking up on new words and began communicating about everything! It was wonderful to see her blossom in this new location, and it was a real reminder of how much I love being a part of their lives.
What is your favorite thing about working at Day Early Learning?
Getting to know the children, watching them grow and seeing their personalities bloom.
