Some of Our Offerings

Off-campus field trips – coupled with community appreciation activities and involvement are also an important part of our learning activities.

An awesome place to enrich young minds! The Children's Adventure Center is a fantastic preschool. The kids are exposed to science, music, art, reading, writing, circle time and lots of outdoor play.

Pros: * They include a healthy breakfast and lunch, it's a pleasure to not have to pack it. * CAC caters to working families, they are open from 7 AM to 6 PM. * Their playground is natural and green, kids can enjoy state of the art equipment and can even sled in the winter. * Prices are reasonable and they will work with you if hard times come a knocking.

It's a shame The Children's Adventure quality has deceased in the past year. I would have liked to send my younger child there so he could have experienced what my older son had! Comments from parents are negative and quality has decreased in the past year or so. Teachers from what I understand are changing over quickly (and they did not in the past)it was nice to have consistency familiar faces made us feel so good. I am very disappointed in what I see and hear now!

Pros: Liked that they had a cook and healthy meals, celebrated ALL holidays, friendly, caring and always willing to accomodate families. I don't know what happened.

Cons: What happened to Spanish and Yoga?? The fun summer things they did (Water days, Whip Cream Pies, cozy hugs and kisses??, Ice Cream)like I said NOT THE SAME!!
