Our early education programs help children grow physically, emotionally, and mentally. Preschool children gain enhanced school readiness, and school-aged children master the skills needed for school success. Our programs guide children’s development through hands-on activities that are fun and educational.

Set your child on an early educational journey with Richmond’s New Direction’s early learning childhood center.

We teach kids to learn through play. Our themed programs engage with children at their developmental level to foster learning in a supportive and positive environment. We offer fun and educational programs for all children from infants to 12 years of age.
