Dilly Dally Nursery And Kindergarten

Dilly Dally Nursery & Kindergarten has been serving the community since 1962 and is family owned and operated We have specially designed educational programs for nursery and pre-kindergarten.
Our classes are for children three years through five years of age.
A whole language curriculum that encourages children to grow educationally, physically, emotionally and socially is implemented by caring and certified teachers.
Our school works hard to stay on top of the most up to date teaching methods.
We are constantly changing our curriculum but maintaining basic methods that we believe nurture children's learning.
Our methods are exemplified in the activities we do with the children.
Children learn by doing things themselves and we provide them with an endless amount of enthusiasm as well as tools to explore with.
