The following programs are available to the children in our care. While children are generally enrolled in a specific program based on their age, Pollywogs To Speckled Frogs Child Care and Preschool will sometimes recommend a specific program based on your child's level of development and general disposition.

Infant Program

At Pollywogs To Speckled Frogs Child Care and Preschool, we understand that there is more to an infant's life than eating and sleeping. Infants see the world through hungry eyes, ready to discover the beauty of colors and textures, and our loving daycare providers are here to help them make the very most of this precious time.

Toddler Program

Keeping up with a toddler bursting with energy can be a challenge, but it is one that we, at Pollywogs To Speckled Frogs Child Care and Preschool, welcome with open arms. Our energetic staff have countless ways of channeling that energy through fun activities and exercises created specifically for your toddler's needs.

Advanced Toddler Program

Our advanced toddler program staff are armed with lots of patience and the answers to the endless strings of questions that come their way every day. Children in our advanced toddler program will be entertained and kept busy with various learning games and activities designed especially for their stage in development.

Preschool Program

Preschoolers are like hungry little sponges. They soak up information faster than it can be gathered, and are at a crucial time in their learning curve. Pollywogs To Speckled Frogs Child Care and Preschool helps preschoolers get ready for school and the world of learning through a variety of fun learning games and exercises.

Regardless of your child's age or development level, Pollywogs To Speckled Frogs Child Care and Preschool is confident that one of our programs will be right for him or her. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information or to discuss your child's special needs with one of our staff.
