Our center was established in 1974. We have had the privilege of being a “home away from home” for many children over the years.
Some of those children are now parents and they are entrusting their own families to our care.
Carie, current owner/director, first joined the staff at Pepper Valley Learning Center in 1984.
She is also a parent with two children, Justin and Aubrey, at Pepper Valley Learning Center.
In November 2004, Carie and her husband Dave Allan along with Monica and Robert Powell established a partnership to purchase Pepper Valley Learning Center.
We provide age-appropriate activities in the following areas art and crafts, music and movement, literature, science, cooking activities, reading and listening comprehension, printing, and simple math and science concepts.
These exercises will help the children develop social skills and gross and fine motor skills.
