Program Philosophy

Granger Children’s Center believes in being a safe, loving, caring and enriching environment with a strong curriculum in socialization, reading, math, science, small/large motor skills, and literacy.  This is achieved through play, developmentally appropriate games and activities, and hands-on-learning experiences to develop your child’s school readiness skills as well as everyday life skills.  Children learn best by exposure to learning elements in a fun and playful manner.

Parents are encouraged to be involved in the child’s day.  Parents are welcome to volunteer in the classrooms, join us on field trips or parties, have lunch with their child, or just stop by for a visit.
