Each Growing Kids center is built from the ground up with one thing in mind: growing kids! Each classroom has child-sized sinks and bathrooms. Classroom layout virtually eliminates "blind spots." Special "parent view" windows allow you to observe activities. We have a Growing Kids exclusive which is a dramatic play area called Main Street. Our philosophy stresses hands-on learning through play, which is how kids learn.
