A Nurturing, 5 Star Learning Environment that Fosters Creativity, Independence, and a Love for Learning

At Children's Cottage we believe that children learn most effectively in a loving environment through hands on exploration. We provide programs for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, in addition to our after school program and summer camp. We have over 10 years of experience in providing the best possible environment for the developing young mind.

Infants and Toddlers

Children are born ready to learn and explore! Our program will allow your infant or toddler to discover his surroundings with all his senses while providing freedom of movement. We tailor our curriculum to meet the needs of each individual, developing personality, while providing that special loving care that all infants and toddlers deserve!


Children's Cottage prepares children age 2-5 for a successful start in school. "The Creative Curriculum" will focus on kindergarten readiness activities such as pre-reading, pre-writing skills, as well as explorations in science and mathematics. We love hands-on activities during circle time and outdoor play, such as singing, dancing, gardening, water play, and story telling. We encourage children to become their best selves by providing them with ample opportunity to work together as a team, focusing on cooperation, language development, and cognitive skills.

After-School Program

Our transportation service ensures that your child will arrive from school to Children's Cottage safely. During their stay, they will focus on homework, enjoy organic snacks, and experience time outdoors with friends. We provide transportation from Ogden, Porter's Neck, and Blair Elementary Schools.
