Milestones Learning Center is a locally owned and operated full day child care center. We have a 5 star rating from the North Carolina Division of Child Development, which is the highest rating a child care center can obtain. We believe children learn and thrive in a hands- on learning environment with caring and nurturing caregivers.
We are a full day child care provider serving children 6 weeks through 5 years of age (Pre-Kindergarten). We are open 7:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. We provide care in a 5 day a week program, a 3 day a week program (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) and a 2 day a week program (Tuesday and Thursday).
As part of our program, we provide breakfast, lunch and snack on a daily basis. Our food service meets the USDA age specific food requirements for children. We also provide all milk and juice in accordance with these guidelines. Click here for a sample menu.
Our center has 10 classrooms where children are cared for based on their physical and developmental age. Our classrooms are set up with interest centers to facilitate our play based philosophy. We also have 4 separate playgrounds that are age appropriate, nature based and lots of fun. Our staff education qualifies us for the highest rating on teacher education that the state of North Carolina recognizes.
Our Pre-K program consists of a full day of learning and fun. We use the Creative Curriculum as a basis for our lesson plans. We use the Handwriting Without Tears program to assist children with their pre-writing skills and phonics based learning to facilitate reading skills. Our goal is to prepare children for Kindergarten, academically, emotionally and socially. We also participate in the More at Four program, a state funded program which helps prepare children for Kindergarten.
