We are located in Mt. View township – 10 minutes from just about anywhere in Hickory. We are nestled in the valley behind Lowes Grocery Store, safe and secure from busy 127. Your children can be safely dropped off or picked up under our carport area. We have three fenced play areas that include a trike tracks, soft playground for the small children and large outdoor space for older children. We also have a large multipurpose room that we use for special programs such as The Jump Bunch, The Storybook Lady, and Strech-n-Grow. We also use our multipurpose area when there is inclement weather and we can not go outside.

Inside our facility, we have five classrooms, from the infants up to our Pre-K classrooms. The infants and the early one’s have their own quiet rooms segregated from the rest of the population. The older children are located in the center of the building in our open-concept classrooms with half-height walls. This gives better visibility of the activities of the classrooms to the adults, while the children’s vision is limited to their room. The vaulted ceiling gives the room a spacious feeling. As an added benefit, the children get used to hearing other classrooms while they nap which can translate to sleeping better through noises even while at home.

We are locked facility. All visitors must be escorted in by staff. Please call to schedule for tours. Parents are welcome to visit anytime! We have CCTV cameras in all the classrooms, as well as some outside the building and in the hallways to monitor all activity.

We have a full kitchen, and we prepare all meals on site. We provide breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. We follow North Carolina’s food program to ensure a balanced, nutritious diet. Our menus change each week, and are posted on the bulletin board at the main entrance as well as our classrooms.
