Chestnut Children's Center
Chestnut Children's Center was founded by Executive Director Lauren Petrini Hentschel in 1995.
Lauren is supported by an outstanding staff of childhood education professionals whose childcare responsibilities are embellished by their love of children and commitment to learning.
We address the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development of children through a curriculum-based program of age-appropriate learning and play.
Whether in group activities, quiet time, active play or on field trips, our goal is to build each child's self-esteem while laying the groundwork for their ongoing education.
