Welcome to the Early Learning Center

          Nurturing the endless potential in every child, every step of the way.

A Home Away from Home

A high quality early learning environment offers more than just a safe place for children; it has a profoundly positive effect on a child’s early development and sets the foundation for positive relationships and a lifetime of learning.  Mead is dedicated to providing a warm, supportive environment, serving as a home away from home for both child and family.

The Mead School Infant Center (6 wks+) is the perfect loving, safe, and fun environment for your baby to relax, explore, and experience.



Toddler Child Care

Explorers!  We provide toddlers (1 yr+) both the stimulation they seek, and the calm, nurturing routines they need.
