Early Care & Education

We welcome you and your child to InterServ Early Care and Education Program and thank you for entrusting us with the education and care of your child.

As you will note in the “Mission Statement of InterServ”, our goal is to help your child live his/her life more fully and capably in whatever environment or life experience he/she is involved in. We believe that guidance by skilled, trained teachers allows your child’s emotional, social, creative, cognitive, and physical development to progress smoothly and rapidly. Your child will discover friendship and sharing, and most importantly, develop a positive self-concept. And though we as care givers play an important role in your child’s life, you are the most significant adults in your child’s life. We encourage you to communicate and work with our staff so that through a partnership we are able to provide the care and experiences that will enable your child to be successful.


Our Philosophy

We believe each child is a unique individual. We are sensitive to their social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs. Using the teacher as a resource and guide, we provide a safe environment with a developmentally appropriate curriculum. This will give each child the opportunity to explore, experience life and to succeed.
