Meals Made With Love
Meals are prepared in-house, a delicious breakfast, lunch, and snacks every day. We are happy to accommodate any food restrictions and allergies your child may have, including gluten-free substitutions. We are a 100% tree-nut and peanut-free environment.
Spacious Rooms And Beautiful Decor Welcome You and Your Little One
Our classrooms are bright and clean. Children’s art adorns our walls, along with their happy pictures and past projects. Large, open spaces give your child plenty of room to move around freely from activity to activity.
Large, Open Playgrounds Your Child Can Safely Explore
Your child spends up to 90 minutes a day in the open air. Our amazing playgrounds have plenty of space to run free, pedal a tricycle, or relax on a patch of grass. Children also play classic schoolyard games like hopscotch or skipping.
Cleaned Daily For Good Health
All classrooms are professionally deep-cleaned and washed every day, including carpet, walls, and floors. Our teachers keep toys fresh by regularly sanitizing, which prevents the spread of germs, and keeps your child healthy.
Get Your Child Ready For
Kindergarten And Beyond
Your child will learn practical life skills, how to have positive relationships, and school skills. We focus on pre-reading and STEAM activities: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Your child will be well-equipped to take on the world of kindergarten.

Having books readily available helps your child develop a love for reading. Your child has access to a wide variety of books to leaf through and to practice letters, words, and sounds. Children enjoy storytime with their teacher every day.
A Classroom Community
Caring For One Another
Our schools are organized like families where everyone needs to learn to work together and get along. Smaller children learn from older children, while bigger kids help care for and teach the little ones.
Bond With Your Child And
Be A Part Of The Community
We invite parents to community events like neighborhood block parties, fundraisers, and Fall festivals. Your child will love it when you supervise a field trip, whether it’s at the local splash pad or a mega-park like LEGOLand.
We Make Sure Your
Child Is Happy And Safe
Your child’s sense of security means you can relax and know your child is happy and safe. Our loving teachers will get to know your little one, welcome them with hugs, and keep them safe every day.
My children have been attending the Madison Ave. location a little close to 2 years now. I have never had any complaints on how they care for my children and they ALWAYS make sure we feel more than comfortable. I love all the activities and the great spirits from all the women, Ms. Freda is such an amazing woman and so is the rest of the team. I love them all and I know my children do as well. I always recommend my friends because of the care and nurturing from all of them, and I honestly trust these women more than anything. Thank you Children’s Choice.

What else is more nerve racking for a parent than leaving their child(ren) at a daycare facility? Nothing! But I can assure ANYONE reading this review, that is something I have never experienced at children’s choice. From the moment you walk through the gates you’re greeted with warm smiles and friendly staff. I have seen firsthand the level of love and care they give to each child, and it is above every standard I have. If you’re looking for a warm, loving, LEARNING environment for your little ones. Look no further!!!

Both of our children have gone to this location! We loved everything about it during our time there and even after! I have referred friends and they love it. The amount of education my kids received while here helped them transition into kindergarten. It’s like being a part of a family. They do so much for and with the children. The activities inside and out. Gardening, performances, fundraisers, plays, parties. It’s an experience I know I won’t forget!
