Training Wheels Child Care With Preschool Program.
“Where We Guide Your Children Through Their Younger Years.”
Training Wheels was established in 1993. It started out as a small Family Child Care/Preschool and has grown into a large successful friendly place to bring your children. We take care of 12-14 kids a day which usually consist of about 25 different families.
Having a fun and structured day is what it is all about at Training Wheels. We try and keep your child busy throughout the whole day with a very busy daily schedule. The busier they are the less time they will have to do something they aren’t suppose to be doing. A happy preschooler makes a happy environment for everyone!!!
We are firm believers that children learn through play. Here at Training Wheels everything is hands on so that your child can explore the world through their own eyes.
We also provide a safe, loving, and nurturing environment that your child will love and feel comfortable in. Not only will your child learn at school everyday but they will have a lot of fun doing it and making wonderful memories that will last a lifetime!!!

The children love moving around in the Centers at School. When you first come to school in the morning the children will start in a certain Center and then rotate to another one every 20 minutes. Centers are a great way to introduce them to all the great wonders of playing and learning.
The Centers help them with their social skills, math reasoning, reading, problem solving, their creative artistic skills, their senses, and the wonders of nature. They are having so much fun that they don’t even realize they are learning!!!
