 About Our Centers

At first glance you will be amazed at the quality of our facilities, our attention to your children's care, and our passion for solid early education. The Kinder Garden has the newest, most modern state of the art buildings & playgrounds, designed specifically for childcare.

We also offer the best weekly rates in the area. The environments are designed to provide the safest place for your children. With this in mind we offer, at both sites, an electronic parent access system with audio/video surveillance in each classroom. We also have a complete emergency preparedness plan in case of a local or county emergency.

At our Stevensville location, we provide care for infants & children up to 5 years of age, along with before & after care, for school-age children, 5-8 years of age. At Easton we provide care for 18 months to 5 years of age. Please call to inquire.

A full day, year round, pre-school program is offered with full-time and part-time options. Openings are currently available in all age groups.

The teachers genuinely love the children and take exceptional care of them. They are nurtured through all of the growth spurts a toddler experiences, and they excel. Manners, potty training, the alphabet, colors, Spanish, field-trips and currently, the solar system (Isabel is 3 and 1/2 years old). These children are more than prepared to enter the school system when they graduate!

We recommend The Kinder Garden to everyone we know!!

You have far surpassed our expectations for service and staff. Roman has truly “blossomed” in your care. I only wish that you were built earlier so that we could have enrolled him from the start! We truly love this place.

What a wonderful school you have for children and also for us parents. I am so delighted to have found you for my daughter. I am so impressed with the fact that you have thought of everything from simply such child friendly doors and clean potty’s, to security, nurturing and creative teachers so excited to teach, involved enthusiastic owners and a caring dedicated wonderful director.

The Kinder Garden is a center that fosters creativity through learning in a manner that our daughter enjoys. We have observed how her motor, communication skills and learning curve are expanding and growing. We are extremely delighted to be part of The Kinder Garden Family.

We are very thankful to The Kinder Garden. In the past 7 months, Saahus has grown into an independent boy! Everyone at this center is very friendly and helpful. We are very fortunate to have this center to care for our loved one.

Our 5 year old son needed a stimulating playful, and creative environment to challenge him before entering Kindergarten. He is getting that and more at The Kinder Garden. Everything that The Kinder Garden offers is high quality, imaginative and fun!

As Educators, we wanted an environment for our son where he would flourish. Not only has The Kinder Garden provided a solid base for future learning, our son loves his teachers, his friends and most of all going to school everyday.
