About Pooh Corner

What Parents are saying about Pooh Corner...
"We have two children (4 yrs and 2 yrs old) who go to Pooh Corner. Our oldest child has been going to Pooh Corner for almost 3.5 years and over this time we've come to appreciate and value the environment and care given to our children. Pooh Corner provides a stable and attentive environment that both of our kids love." - The Fongs
Here at Pooh Corner, we have been caring for children for over 30 years, as a state licensed center, with excellent ratings and a solid reputation since our beginnings.

We care for children from 4 weeks to 12 years of age -- year round. All of our programs, full and part-time, are nurturing and structured, with emphasis on the appropriate educational skills at each stage of development.
Our Philosophy:
It is our philosophy that a child care center can be an extension of the home environment.  With most of today’s families, both parents are in the workforce, and single and two-parent families need dependable, quality child care for their children.  Parents need to feel that their children will be as safe and happy while they cannot be with them as they are at home.  We feel that caring individuals who are employed in the child care field can give the love and support that the children and their parents need.  We strive to get to know the "whole” family, including extended family, pets and family values and traditions.  We re-enforce morals and manners that may be taught at home.  The schedule in the infant room is very flexible so that each infant may be on the same schedule as he/she follows at home.
It is also the responsibility of a good child care center to assist each child in reaching his/her full potential.  We strive to meet this goal by recognizing each stage of development in each child and planning activities to meet these individual needs.  Emphasis is placed on nurturing and facilitating growth in all developmental domains:  social, physical, emotional, and cognitive.
