At Childcare at Wilkins Learning Center, children from infants to 3-year-olds are encouraged to climb the “mountain of knowledge.”
Wilkins offers five childcare programs: swaddlers, crawlers, walkers, talkers and mini 3s. Infants get healthy doses of cuddling, reading and singing from a caring, loving teacher. Toddlers explore their creativity through interactive play and hands-on exploration.
Founder Sharon Wilkins, who runs the learning center with daughters Jennifer and Melissa, said this is “fertile soil” time, where the magic of learning happens and ultimately grows into confident, capable and kind children.
