Program Structure & Curriculum

Your child will love coming to Nanny’s each day. We encourage each student to explore, interact, and engage their imaginations through active and purposeful play. Utilizing the HighScope learning curriculum, Nanny’s Day Program is designed around the busy schedules of working parents and incorporates nutritious meals, customized lessons, plenty of outdoor time, group activities, and special programs into the kids’ daily routines.


We divide our classrooms by age or developmental readiness to ensure our teachers have ample time and resources to devote to each student. Kids have direct outside access to our playground from every classroom of our single-level facility. Outside play time takes place in our fully fenced-in playground, which features four separate play areas organized by age and development for plenty of gross motor activities and outdoor play.

  • Nanny’s Early Learning Center is very comforting and that’s what I like and they also do that one on one time with your child to let you know how it’s going, and how you can improve your child at the daycare by what you can do at home with them.

    - Raven Mundy

  • My girls have been attending Nanny’s for over 4 years. The employees at Nanny’s are god fearing, smart, respectful, friendly, loving, caring, and loyal. The employees aren’t just there for the check, they show all the children love. They treat your kids like their own children. They take care of any concerns you may have immediately. Overall they just do a great job with your children. I absolutely love this daycare and I would recommend this daycare to anyone looking for childcare.

  • I feel really blessed because this has been the only daycare my son has enjoyed and loves coming to. It has also been the only place I feel comfortable dropping off.

    - Nicole Baskett

  • This daycare has been nothing but the best. The family oriented environment is what I love the most. My son is always excited to come in the morning and sometimes it’s hard to get him to leave. The staff/teachers are also great and work well with each child. I never go to pick up my son without seeing him with a smile on his face. Thank you all for everything.
