Our state-of-the-art center is located in the Hedingham subdivision between the Beltline and Knightdale, serving the Eastern Wake County communities. My name is Michelle and I am the Director. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in early childhood education and look forward to completing my master's degree. I have 25 years of experience as a teacher, trainer, mentor and director.
Our school offers Infant Care, Preschool and other early education programs. I enjoy interacting with families here in Raleigh and seeing the children develop into lifelong learners.
We are excited to offer new technology in our School-Age classroom. These enhancements include iPads featuring apps to create art, music and videos, tripods for movie making, robots for coding, a new gaming system and a new Prep Lab to support e-learning!
Our outstanding staff has more than 250 years of combined experience at this center! All teachers receive monthly training as well as ongoing training provided by local state agencies.
Health and safety are essential to us and at our school. Your child’s well-being is always our top priority. We are closely following guidance from the CDC as well as state, and local officials and health authorities as we take extreme care to maintain our safe, healthy school environment. Our center is equipped with locked entrances at all times and we are excited to be offering the WatchMeGrow live streaming video service in the near future. This service gives families the convenience of being able to view their children’s activities in our classrooms in real time, at any time, on their computer, phone or tablet, with secured access for additional peace of mind. brightwheel, our mobile app, also keeps you up to date with real time photos and updates about your child's day! Diapers and wipes are also included in tuition!

Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More

I have a tremendous love of children and I place a high standard on learning. I believe children are an inspiration; each one different in their own way with so much to teach us. Early childhood is when children are developing the most and when learning is the greatest. This is where the importance should be placed as these early experiences with learning can really influence how a child looks at schooling in the future.
