The benefits that children gain in early learning childcare follow them throughout the rest of their lives. Whether it’s going to college or purchasing a home, many lifetime successes link to early access to educational programs. Children taught at an early age usually benefit in the following ways: improved social skills, less or no need for special education instruction during subsequent school years, better grades, and enhanced attention spans. Our children learn essential life skills that stay with them forever. Whether you want to enroll your child in an early learning center or our free preschool in Washington Parish, give us a call today.


    Our mission is to promote and develop educational and economic opportunities by providing quality developmentally appropriate early childhood care and education for children birth to age five so that each child enters kindergarten ready for success.


    Every child in Washington Parish is prepared to enter Kindergarten, which will in turn, make sure that more children are positioned for success in the early elementary grades and beyond.

  • Our Purpose
