Here, your son or daughter will find a rich, nurturing environment where learning is fun, the curriculum grows as skills increase, and passionate teachers turn every learning moment into a positive experience.
Cranberry KinderCare Photo #3 - Infants need a safe, secure, "home away from home" where they can learn, play, and grow. Our younger infant room is designed as a smaller space to allow our younger and non-mobile infants to have that close and nurturing environment. Our teachers talk, sing, and read to our youngest infants to ensure the best start in educational life.
Cranberry KinderCare Photo #4 - Our older infant classroom is for our mobile infants. This larger, least restrictive room allows our older infants the freedom to move every part of their body, whenever he/she desires, as he works towards all those critical milestones. Our teachers work with the older infants on crawling, standing, walking, etc. They sing, read, and constantly talk to their babies.
Cranberry KinderCare Photo #5 - Our Early Foundations Preschool curriculum intentionally teaches letter identification, sounds, writing, math and science skills in a logical and developmentally approrpiate manner. Our classroom is set-up in learning centers where children are encouraged to explore and challenged to learn.

Children experience the SmartBoard as they work through the K12 Interactive Curriculum in a small, full-day kindergarten program. Your child will leave our program, ready for first grade in the public school districts.
