Boulevard Children's CenterOur Child Care Center:
Our Center is secured for safety.  Doors are locked and require an entry code.  The Director’s office is in the hallway at the entrance of the Center so she can welcome anyone coming in. Our open floor plan enables the children to be familiar with all staff from every room.  This encourages them to feel comfortable anywhere in the Center.

Our facility is equipped with progressive play areas and individual classrooms optimized for effective learning. Our environment is bright in color and alive with activity—and we’re certain you’ll find us unique.  We hope you’ll visit and see for yourself.

Our Day:
Each classroom has a structured routine and classroom schedule, individualized for each age group, providing age appropriate skills and activities.  We incorporate a variety of reading, math, science, art, sensory, songs, large & small motor, and outside play to fill each day with lots of learning and fun.

The Boulevard Day Care CenterThe Center also offers extra-curricular activities including a dance class, music class, computer classes, and a Yoga class.  These classes are an additional cost to the family but are provided during the classroom day and are conducted at the Center.

Meals are provided and include Breakfast, a morning snack, Lunch, and an afternoon snack--all nutritionally balanced.
