About Us

Our Mission | Our Early Education Staff | Our Board of Directors | Our Location

Our philosophy at Imagination Station Child Development Center is to regard the personal qualities of each child as unique gifts to be nurtured, shared and appreciated. Our curriculum is based upon sound child development principles and best practices.

Children learn:

  1. to be responsible for their behavior choices,
  2. to use words, art, music, writing and exercise to express themselves,
  3. to be an empathetic friend,
  4. to appreciate diversity
  5. and to find positive ways of coping with day-to-day challenges.

Children who leave our center are well-equipped to socialize, learn and thrive in a larger public or private school setting.
