Welcome Letter From Our Owners


Since we opened in 1986, some things have never changed: our commitment to the children we teach and nurture, our commitment to the families who entrust us with their most valuable possessions, and our commitment to our staff, who are really the most important part of what we do. It’s all in our mission statement, which we are passionate about. Not a day goes by, let alone a month or a year where we aren’t continuously working on being better at everything we do.

We are proud of our schools and hold them to the highest standards. We invite you to contact us with questions and/or comments at any time.

Sincerely,

Jane Porterfield –  Jane@EducationalPlaycare.com
Gerry Pastor – Gerry@EducationalPlaycare.com

Health & Wellness

All of our locations employ The ZONO system which is radically different from any other sanitizing solution available. It uses ozone and a small amount of water to kill 99.9% of bacteria and 99.9% of viruses on materials placed inside it.

Safety &
Security

We exceed what is required to ensure the safety and security of your child at all times. ALL staff members are CPR Certified. Each door requires a unique family code to enter. Surveillance cameras cover all interior and exterior areas.
