About Sweet Beginnings

Sweet Beginnings opened for care and early childhood education on November 2, 2009. Since that date our school has continued to grow enrollment in all of our programs. Currently we provide a caring educational environment for up to eighty-four children. We are proud of our school for many reasons; we’ve created an environment where all decisions are based on what is best for our children, where families feel like we are a part of their extended family, and where the staff and teachers take pride in providing quality care and valuable learning opportunities for all our students.

Please see our Programs page for more in-depth information. Also, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to schedule a visit to one of our schools.
