Here We Grow was founded in Fall 2012 with the vision of providing hands-on early learning experiences by forming partnerships with families. We began forming partnerships with families when we opened our doors in February of 2013. To foster these family partnerships, we sought to create a small learning environment. As such our total capacity is 34; with licensing approval for 14 Toddlers and 20 Preschoolers.

We believe children have the potential to do great things, even at early ages, and as such our environment is designed to encourage exploration. Our environment and everyday routine exhibit our value of independence and development of self-help skills, as well as critical thinking and problem solving skills. Our Reggio inspired approach to learning means that our staff serve as facilitators of learning; as such you will see much movement within our classrooms and aside from meal times, time spent sitting at tables is limited.

Our staff is comprised of 4 full-time teachers and assistant teachers, each whom have education and experience relevant to providing a quality and age-appropriate learning environment. In addition we also have 2 part-time staff members to assist as needed in both classrooms. Our daily operations are overseen by the Director and Owner, who holds a Bachelor of Science in Education as well as a Master of Science in Educational Leadership.

Our facility is located on 2 acres, allowing us to explore the outdoors in our 1 acre fenced in play area. Our indoor area consists of 2 large classrooms with many windows for natural light. Additionally parents, children, and staff alike remove their shoes upon entry, creating a clean floor area for exploration.

We invite you to tour our facility and learn more about how we can partnership with you in your child's learning and development.
