We believe children are life’s most valuable resource – they are the future! We believe strengthening a child’s foundation will yield a strong and secure adult. It is the responsibility of a good childcare center to assist each child in reaching their full potential. We strive to meet this goal by recognizing each child's development stage and planning activities to meet their individual needs. Emphasis is placed on nurturing and facilitating growth in all developmental domains: social, physical, emotional, and cognitive. We want each child to have a positive self-concept and be confident when trying new things.


Our Mission:

New Direction Childcare and Learning Center is a safe, nurturing environment for children. We inspire children to learn and grow by providing a solid educational foundation, highly-trained teachers, and a protected environment where children can thrive intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.

Our Vision:

To continue to be recognized as industry leaders, giving parents peace of mind while their child is in our care. Equip children with the skills to be successful in the world. Give the staff opportunities to grow and develop their expertise in the career path with early childcare.
