Childcare and education is not a one-size-fits-all experience. Rhymes and Reasons Daycare aims to provide unique and individualized care to each and every child who enters our center. We provide childcare to children between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years, along with a before and after school program for children up to 12 years of age. Our highly trained, dedicated staff provides high quality, early childhood education that is developmentally appropriate for each age group. At Rhymes and Reasons Daycare, we have created a safe, supportive and nurturing environment, in which your child can explore and learn.

  2. My son has been going here for two years! They treat him like family, I couldn't ask for better people to take care of my little man, it's his home away from home.

  4. I worked at this daycare for close to ten years. My children also attended too. I enjoyed my time working there very much until I left in April 2011 and moved out of state. I have to say my co workers and I loved and treated all the children as if they were our own. There are many times staff went beyond what you would expect to help children and their families. I recommend this daycare to anyone who has ever asked where a good daycare is.

OUR PROGRAMS

  1. 1
    INFANT ROOM
    *6 weeks to 18 months* In our Infant Room we provide a secure, loving, and age appropriate environment for your child. Our Infant Room staff is experienced, well-qualified, and they work hard to ensure an individualized routine that works well for each child, to respond to the infants’ needs, and to keep parents informed every step of the way. To us, early care and education go hand-in-hand so songs, reading, and art activities play a big part of our daily routine.
  2. 2
    TODDLER ONE
    *18 months to 2 years* In our Toddler One Room we provide a motivational environment for your child. Our daily routine includes story time, finger-play songs, dance & movement, educational instruction, and arts & crafts. Free play is also an important role that provides the children with social independent skills.
  3. 3
    TODDLER TWO
    *2 to 3 years* Our Toddler Two Room provides a more educational environment for your two year old. Our daily routine includes a more enhanced circle time which focuses on a more educational background. We also stress the importance of reading aloud and having independent eating and playing skills. Potty training also plays a big role for this age to get your child ready for our Pre-K room.
  4. 4
    PRE-K
    *3 to 5 years* Our Pre-K room offers an exciting, educational program, designed to prepare your child for the transition into kindergarten. The lead teacher is a highly skilled professional, possessing a Master’s degree in early childhood education and special education. Our program aims to build important foundational skills, such as: letter recognition, one-to-one letter-sound correspondence, number recognition, rote counting, name recognition, and early writing. We provide stimulating, hands-on activities that include social development, motor skills, creative arts, and music. Children receive individualized attention and instruction, based upon their varying abilities.
  5. 5
    SCHOOL AGE
    *5 to 12 years* Our School-Age location is a before and after school observed program that is also open for half and full days on school breaks and vacations (including summer vacation). We provide a fun filled environment for your child while giving them the adult supervision they may need for homework. This time also allows them to be social and make new friends.
  6. 6
    NIGHT CARE
    Our Daycare Center also provides a Night Care Program for our third-shift working parents. This is open to all ages and focuses more on creating a playful environment that allows your child to have fun and engage in positive social interactions with other children. Our highly trained staff works together to find the perfect balance of organized play, learning, and time for your child to relax and unwind.
