  • Happy 1st Birthday… Your baby’s first big birthday has arrived! As you get ready for the celebration, think back on the last 12 months as a time of incredible growth and development.

  • At Jumpstart Infant Enrichment Center we invite you to continue your child’s developmental journey by transitioning them into our Pre-school Program at Jumpstart Child Enrichment Center (located in the same complex at 5765 NW 151 Street).

    Our toddler program provides the same warm, welcoming environment where your toddler can continue to grow and develop. Your child’s primary teacher is a nurturing child development professional who is focused on creating experiences and opportunities that invite exploration and support the rapid and important development that is occurring in a child’s first year.

    At Jumpstart Child Enrichment Center we are focused on keeping your child happy, engaged, and secure. We personalize care for each child based on his or her unique schedule, nutritional guidelines, and any other special attention he/she may require.

    Warm and nurturing interactions with caregivers, days spent in a home-like environment for learning, individualized attention and experiences, and meaningful partnerships with parents are the cornerstones of our program offered at Jumpstart Child Enrichment Center.

    At Jumpstart Child Enrichment Center we are constantly updating the learning environment that is essential to each developmental milestone of your child. Our individual classrooms cater to the needs of each child at each developmental stage through five years old. 

    Our trained Early Childhood Professionals provide a warm and loving atmosphere for your child to thrive in. Each classroom is designed to meet the specific areas of development by providing a developmentally appropriate learning environment for your child. 

    Jumpstart Child Enrichment Center continues to offer the educational path necessary for your child’s growth and development through providing a stimulating environment to guide your child towards reaching their full potential. Along the way we look forward to helping your child continue to grow both developmentally and socially.
