kids funOur mission is to serve children from birth to age 12 five days a week year round. We offer part day programs, which we refer to as preschool and full-day programs, which we call daycare. We also have a before and after school program for children enrolled in the Marion City, Pleasant, River Valley and St. Mary school districts. During the summer we care for children who have completed kindergarten through the fifth grade all day through our “Summer Camp” opportunity.

We have been blessed with a dedicated, highly trained, and experienced staff that provides quality education and care for our children. You can get to know our lead teachers by clicking on the various program areas listed above.
We welcome the opportunity to talk to you and to give you a tour of our facility.
