How about a little history!
Inspire began as a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit preschool in 2011, and moved into a large care center in June 2012. We opened a second location in November 2014. Today, we can serve over 150 children and their families between our two state certified child care centers.
Our mission is to provide a nurturing, inclusive community where families and teachers come to grow!
Come Imagine, Grow, Inspire at Inspire Early Learning Centers. Choosing a child care can be a very difficult decision. We are happy to talk with you as you consider your options. You are your child's first teacher, and we can partner together to help your child flourish and grow.

Our Philosophy - The Why and How of What We Do
We believe that children's well-being has the largest impact on development.
We provide a physically and emotionally safe environment. We encourage healthy food choices, movement, and fitness. We create an atmosphere of warmth, affection and respect for each child. This environment helps each child form a positive self-concept, and builds the foundation for lifelong success.
We believe that teachers, staff and adults are models for learning.
Our staff is qualified through education and experience. All staff complete 25+ hours of continuing education each year. Our administration and board of directors work to support our teachers and families. We provide benefits for staff members that encourage long-term employment. These things help children, families, teachers and staff form positive, enduring relationships.
We believe that families desire and have a right to be involved in their children's education.
We expect mutually respectful communication between staff and families. We welcome input and feedback from family members, and families are encouraged to engage in the program in ways that fit their lives. These connections help provide continuity between school and home life, and increase children's self-confidence and ability to handle changes.
We believe that every child deserves to be safe and well-cared-for while s/he explores and achieves.
We gladly embrace children of all abilities, from all cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds. We encourage and nurture diversity by exploring different abilities, families and cultures. This early exposure to diversity helps prepare children for growing up in our increasingly connected and global society.
We believe in going beyond the basics.
We strive to furnish an environment rich in materials, along with exposure to other languages, music and fine art. We help children with emotional development by providing individualized instruction coupled with opportunities to work, play, socialize and problem solve with others. Our rich curriculum and programming help children develop to their highest potential.
