Our Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program (VPK) Goes FAR Beyond The Minimum Requirements With Advanced Social Emotional Skills, Computer Labs, Enhanced Learning Environment, And Character Development!

Our Blended Curriculum
Promotes Literacy
and Kindergarten Readiness

The most important learning in the brain happens by the age of five. Our VPK program promotes a love of education in children by using a STEAM and the Creative Curriculum, and by focusing on weekly themes to explore a new topic through letters, colors, numbers, and science. This allows your child to be as prepared as possible for their entry to kindergarten, especially in the areas of literacy, pre-math, and social skills.

A Colorful, Imaginative
Environment To
Stimulate The Senses

Our fun, child-centric facilities are complete with age and function-specific areas in each classroom while inspiring curiosity, imagination and wonder. The interior of our child-care centers have been specially designed to resemble a small town with shops and streets that take visual learning to the next level. With pops of color, pattern and texture on every surface, there are endless avenues for exploration throughout the day!

Safety and Security Come First

The Growing Room uses state of the art security technology to keep young learners safe and comfortable. All doors are locked and require key card access, while our outdoor yards are fenced in and CCTV cameras are used internally. Parents also enjoy the added benefit of being able to tune in to their child’s daily activities via our convenient live-streaming platform.

Character Development Shape Little Ones' Personas

At such an early and impactful stage in their lives, your child easily picks up habits and personality traits based on those closest to them. Our caretakers make sure to focus on character education in order to highlight positive concepts such as integrity, respect, caring and fairness while promoting beneficial socio-emotional development.

Enriching Activities That
Cater To Every Interest

With a strong emphasis on music, art, creative play and expression, our program offers your child a variety of activities in order to allow them to explore and identify their own interests. From learning new languages to trying yoga, playing group sports or letting their imagination roam free in our dramatic play center, your pre-kindergartener will learn something new throughout each enriching day!

Computer Lab Time To
Develop Technology Skills

With most grade school homework now being done online, we recognize the importance of teaching pre-kindergarteners how to use the computer before their entry into a more formal learning environment. Our computer labs are hosted twice weekly in order to provide your little ones with the technology skills they need in order to succeed.

Child-Friendly, Age-
Appropriate Playgrounds

Your young learner will be able to run, explore and play as much as they’d like thanks to our safe, astro-turf coated outdoor playground areas. With plenty of structures to climb, our recreational space promotes physical development while being divided into three different sections based on age group.

Healthy, Nut-Free
Meals and Snacks

We understand the importance of a nutritious, well-balanced meal to give your pre-kindergartener the energy they need throughout the day. Our breakfast, lunch and snack offerings are complimentary and are entirely free of all nuts including peanuts – all while tasting delicious.

Regular Parent Communication
and an Open Door Policy

Regular communication between caretakers and parents contributes to your pre-kindergartener’s ultimate success at the Growing Room. Our door is always open so that parents can drop by to meet with us whenever they’d like to. We also offer access to a variety of on-site developmental therapists that you can consult with and keep you up to date on your child’s progress with our useful Preschool2me reporting tool.

"My son has learned so much this past year! "
My son Lincoln just graduated from VPK at the Growing Room. He was home with me for 4 years so i was very nervous about him starting school. My son has learned so much this past year! I love how almost every holiday they have a class party/event for the kids and really get the kids excited! My son came home with so many amazing projects he made in school and really thrived this past year. His teachers Mrs. Lupe and Ms. Chantell were absolutely amazing! I have only great things to say about this school! I will definitely be sending my daughter there when she is old enough for VPK. i highly recommend the growing room!

"I couldnt be happier with the teachers, staff, and the program"
My twins have been a part of the Growing Room VPK family since the start of the school year this past August. I couldnt be happier with the teachers, staff, and the program at The Growing Room. When I bring my children to school every morning they are happy and excited, ready to see what they will be learning that day. When I arrive to pick them up they are always smiling and ready to tell me about their day. I am sorry to say goodbye this summer, but I am confident that my children are ready for Kindergarten.

"the daycare is well maintained"
My daughter Julianna has been attending Growing Room Bonita for the past three years. I honestly can't say enough about the wonderful director Ms. Jen, her front staff and the teachers. My little one is in VPK and is thriving. Ms. Lynn and Ms. Sabrina are fantastic. They have been wonderful with my daughters quirks and embrace my involvement in the classroom. The daycare is well maintained and the classroom ratio is awesome.
