Fresh Home-Cooked Meals & Snacks

We believe that the better the quality of food your little ones eat, the better health they will enjoy as they grow. We call this the "more carrots, fewer nuggets" philosophy. In addition, our produce is fresh and our grains are whole, so, we can do our best by your child!

In order to respect many of the cultural and religious food preferences, we use no beef or pork in any of our menu items. Our main sources of protein are chicken, turkey, fish, eggs, cheese and legumes.

We are also a nut-free facility!

Dedicated Newborn Room

Soothing neutral colors with subtle cheery accents adorn this cozy infant room. Polliwogs recognizes that newborns are very different from older babies. They still don't know day from night, and they are the most vulnerable that they will ever be. With these factors in mind we built them a room where they can grow properly, and get away from the perils of the rollers, crawlers, and walkers.

Accepting Children From 6 Weeks to 5 Years Old

While playing is essential for learning, little minds need to be challenged in order to thrive. Here at Polliwogs we are very proud of our ability to stimulate children of every age. We start with our infants. They get lots of love with only four per room. We try to see that each child is getting what they need physically and emotionally each and every day. When age appropriate, usually around one, we bridge to some traditional learning through fun, changing themes on a two week rotation. We expand on that through full-blown preK.

Educate & Motivate

We don't believe in hiring employees who are just in it for the paycheck. We believe in finding individuals with a passion and drive to help young ones grow and thrive. Even our assistants are either working toward their teacher qualifications, or have more than a decade of early childhood work experience.
