“The more things that you learn, the more places you'll go."
Learn and Grow Child Care understands that the early years of your child's life are the most formative and the most important in his or her development. Our goals for your child are clear. We want to provide a safe, nurturing environment where your young children are socially, emotionally and cognitively prepared for kindergarten and beyond. We know that the care and education of your child is an awesome responsibility. We look forward to providing your family with the quality child care you have been searching for in our nurturing, learning environment that feels like home. We understand very well the urgent need for quality child care on Long Island. We reject the growing trend toward large, less personal, cookie cutter daycare centers. Instead, we strive to offer the best child care for your family at an affordable price.

Learn and Grow Child Care is the inspiration of two sisters who began their journey as early childhood educators over 25 years ago. Together, they have taught in almost every area of early childhood learning including Mommy and Me, Toddler, Nursery School, Pre-K, kindergarten, literacy and after-school enrichment. They see the need for quality early childhood education and child care. Learn and Grow is their response to the community's needs.
