Mr. Kirk Allen

Director / Owner

Twenty eight years as center owner / director. Our communities most valuable resource is our children. What we sow into them is what they gain in life. It is up to the community as a whole. No one individual, not just a parent, not just a teacher.  All of us.

We are constantly monitoring the status of the Covid-19 virus. We will continue to weigh the risk to our children and staff with our service to the community. Disinfecting protocols have been increased and all children will be screened for fevers and coughs on entry to the center daily. No staff or child will be allowed to attend with signs of any symptoms. If a child exhibits symptoms of a cold or virus while they are at the center, they must remain out for a minimum of 72 hours and may be required to get a release from a doctor. Any child or staff with a slight fever, runny nose or watery eyes will not be allowed to attend.  We will continue to remain open until further notice.
