For young children, life is about playmates, hands-on learning, and adventure. It is about friendships and familiar routines; it is about engaging in organized activities which also allow for spontaneity and incidental learning; it is about sensory experiences that involve movement, creativity, music and so much more. For young children, they can find all of these things ~ and more ~ at Dreamland Learning Center in Johnston.
Dreamland Learning Center is part of a network of childcare centers throughout the region which make parents and caregivers alike happy, and, with all the programming and fun it is known for, make children happy too! Children ages six weeks through age 12 are welcome here.
Every space in this center is thoughtfully planned and designed to be developmentally appropriate and purposeful. Child-size furniture makes each room look comfortable and adapted to the needs of pint-sized early learners while shelves are filled with toys and walls are strewn with art projects. Centers are set up for imaginary play, arts & crafts, building, science, music and story time. The outside playgrounds provide the perfect place for youngsters to run off all that childhood energy. The after-school room is complete with long tables for summer school homework.
The curriculum and staff-to-child ratio requirements here meet the strict standards of the state while all staff are licensed, and CPR certified. The staff here work as a team with one goal in mind and that is to enrich the lives of the children over whom they have been given this special stewardship. In fact, the whole facility is Bright Star® rated for excellence.
Parents and children who come to this busy and nurturing learning center on Hartford Avenue will find that many of the changes that were implemented to protect the health and safety of its students in the days of the pandemic are still in place. At the same time, the daily programming for the children who attend Dreamland is still packed with fun, activity, friendships, and play.
The center is open all year round! The staff works together to plan a fun-filled summer complete with field trips, outdoor water play and a balanced curriculum that continues to encourage your children to learn through play.
