School Notes:

  • Welcome to the Denville KinderCare. Finding the right place for your child's education and care is a big decision. Our education experts designed our classrooms and our wonderful curriculum, but it is our fabulous teachers that make it special! We help you prepare your child for success in school and beyond. With designated learning centers such as math, literacy and dramatic play, children have the opportunity for rich social play and child initiated discovery.
    Our classrooms are  print-rich environments full of carefully selected materials, written charts, labels and children's literature. By helping your child connect spoken words and print we are helping develop early literacy and writing skills. Whether your child only has first words or is in Kindergarten, I would love to show you how everything we do is designed for learning.
    Our Center is small which allows our staff to focus on individualized attention. Our center has a "family" appeal to it and I would love to make you part of our family. Come in and meet our teachers, see our classrooms and learn more about our center and programs.
