Mary Johnson Children's Center

Mary Johnson Children's Center enrolls children from 18 months to 5 years of age.
Our curriculum is play based meaning that we believe children learn through play.
There is a strong emphasis on the natural world, so children spend time outside daily.
Physical development through activity is a significant part of the curriculum.
Children have opportunities to paint, sculpt, draw, write, sew, and engage in many creative outlets with their hands.
Developing social skills and independence are emphasized throughout the day.
