Our experts designed our classrooms - and every activity and lesson - to help prepare your child for success in school and beyond. With designated learning centers such as dramatic play and blocks in every classroom, children have the opportunity for rich social play and child-initiated discovery.
You’ll also find that our classrooms feature a print-rich environment full of carefully selected materials, written charts and labels, and children’s literature. By helping your child connect spoken words and print, we’re helping develop early literacy and writing skills.
Whether your child has first words or first grade on the horizon, we’re excited to show you how everything in our center is designed for learning!

Teachers & Staff
Our staff is dedicated to early childhood education. We are comprised both of teachers that have been with us for over ten years, and teachers who are new to our center. We pair up our veterans with newer teachers. They play off of each others' strengths, which helps to keep both new ideas and proven strategies in an ideal way.
Health & Safety
At Melrose KinderCare Learning Center safety is our number one priority! We have a keypad to enter the center. Only families are given the code. All of our staff are CPR and First Aid certified.
