The Children in the Shoe provides high quality child care and early education for young children.

The key to successful learning experiences is to figure out what interests your child. We help your child develop a love of learning. Active play is at the heart of children’s learning. We encourage them to observe, explore, take things apart, build, create, draw, and see what they can find out.

Our programs are play-based, emphasizing creativity, cooperation and social development. Our emergent curriculum is inspired and driven by the imaginations of children.
