Our Hours

We are closed for all federal holidays

For 16 month old and Above

In these classrooms, teachers nurture each child’s talents while providing a balance of the following:

  • Circle Time and Project Time
  • Center or Choice Time
  • Small and Large Group Instruction
  • Art, Music and Dance
  • Story Time and Dress Up Time
  • Outside Play, Water Play and Nature Walks

Our Playground

We believe that time spent playing outdoors is essential to a child’s development. Our outdoor playground is where children can expend their creative energy and develop motor skills by running, climbing, and exploring.

Encouraging Healthy Eating

Another aspect of the Lily Pad at Metro Park program is developing good nutritional habits as children learn to socialize during mealtime. Snacks and other food, provided by parents for their little ones, are seen as important opportunities for conversation and positive interactions with others.

An Allergy-Aware School

Please note that our daycare center may accommodate children with allergies. Snacks that have peanuts or peanut products are not permitted.
