At Serendipity Learning Center, we strive to provide an inspiring and developmentally appropriate learning environment that allows children to express their creativity, explore their surroundings and learn while providing peace of mind to parents when it comes to the care and safety of their children.
The philosophy of Serendipity Learning Center is to provide a developmentally appropriate program that develops a positive self-concept, enhances creativity, and enriches and challenges each child's life while targeting all areas of development, including character development.
Our program is designed to meet the unique needs of each child we serve in a safe and nurturing environment.
There is an atmosphere of acceptance in which the individual needs of each child are considered and in which the child can flourish and grow under the guidance of qualified teachers. As caregivers, we strive to create a learning environment that is safe and engaging that encourages exploration and discovery.
At Serendipity, we are proud to combine innovative teaching methods with old-fashioned values!
We offer year-round open enrollment. Learning is always going on at Serendipity, just jump right in!
Tuition includes a morning snack, lunch an afternoon snack and a light snack at the end of the day. Snack breaks and the daily lunch mealtime are a great opportunity to teach our students to develop a healthy lifelong relationship with food!
Lunch is an important event where your child will build their rapidly-developing social skills in a casual family-meal-style setting. Every day, just before lunch, each class will learn about the various foods on the menu through age-appropriate games, play and activities designed to make eating healthfully...Fun!
Kids are bombarded with ads that tend to fail miserably at promoting a healthful diet. At Serendipity, we enthusiastically counter this and build a foundation of choosing healthful food, drink and snacks for our kids that will lead to a lifetime of good habits.
Healthful food choices do not have to be boring! We provide a constantly changing variety of locally-sourced organic fresh fruits and vegetables! Our meals are based on scrumptious recipes from around the world and entice even the pickiest eaters to consistently join in and truly enjoy lunch with their friends.
