ABOUT US
Welcome to Tiny Toes. I am delighted that you have taken an interest in our family. Tiny Toes is not a franchise. We are a family based center that strives to provide a safe, healthy and nurturing atmosphere for children up to six years of age. Our goal is to create a loving environment where parents feel comfortable leaving their children, and the children look forward to being here each and every day. We provide developmentally appropriate programs with open-ended experiences that will allow each child to develop into a creative thinker. Our basic philosophy revolves around  the needs  of each  individual child and  the curriculum fosters  a
lifelong love of learning, while simultaneously developing a solid foundation for cognitive, social, and emotional development. Our classrooms have a variety of learning activities specifically designed to challenge children to explore, make choices and learn. Children are inspired to exercise imagination and creativity. Our curriculum helps prepare children for school and for life! Our days are busy as we learn about ourselves and the world around us. We focus on days filled with learning and fun.  We also encourage our families to join us and take active role in their child's development.
