Our Philosophy

We believe that all children deserve love, attention, nurturing and that childcare should be an extension of the family. We believe that play is central to a child’s development, to building community, and enhancing education and that a safe environment allows children to explore, grow and inspires a love of learning.   We incorporate activities such as arts and crafts, music, drama, manipulatives, cooking, science and more into our daily routine. Through these collaboratives we can inspire early childhood learning, build self-esteem, enhance social skills and develop independence and self reliance.  With our progressive and holistic early childhood education philosophy, we understand that each child has unique needs and interests. We provide the environment and tools your child needs to thrive to the best of their abilities.


When we expose children to different environments and various learning experiences, we allow them to explore their self-awareness and gain a sense of the world around them. Once they leave Under the Magic Pine Tree Childcare Center, they’re fully prepared for the next stage of their young lives.

6 weeks-2 years

Our infant program is completely devoted to the well being of our infants. We provide our little ones with a quiet, serene atmosphere where they can play and learn. Our infants get to run the show in their class room, eating and sleeping on demand. Our high quality staff develop relationships with your baby, fostering optimal learning. They will play with colors, numbers and shapes, sing songs and look at books.


2 years

Toddlers are naturally curious and eager little learners. Their brains are like sponges, absorbing all the knowledge they can, and that is why each day in our toddler program is filled with learning activities disguised as FUN! Our learning experiences are designed to promote a toddler’s blossoming independence, develop their social skills and foster self--confidence.


3-4 years

Our Preschool class rooms focus on enhancing your child’s confidence and independence by providing activities to help them become problem solvers and life long learners. Social skills are developed and nurtured as your preschooler is learning how to be a good friend. Classroom jobs introduce the concepts of responsibility and dependability to your child.

School Age

5-12 years

We offer safe, age-appropriate activities guaranteed to keep your child engaged and learning whether here once in a while or all summer long.

Our school age program goes well beyond homework help. We support children in becoming the kindest, most capable, and most resilient version of themselves.
