Growing Happy, Healthy, Whole People

Growing Places sets itself apart through an understanding that the core of early education is in the development of healthy and trusting relationships between children, teachers and parents. Children learn best when there is a strong partnership between home and school. We value open and honest communication, and we work to build nurturing and trusting partnerships with families.

Our teachers see the unlimited potential in each child and recognize the opportunity and responsibility we have to help children build a strong foundation for future success. Growing Places Teachers understand that every moment matters: their interactions are respectful and responsive, validating children’s feelings.
