The key to outlining the best curriculum for your child is through offering age specific, customized programs.

Our fun, interactive activities help round out your child’s development. Whether outside play for gross motor development or utilizing specially designed fine motor manipulatives, your child will be excited to explore the options we have available!

An extra bonus…Perfectly Poppins comes to you!! Feel confident in knowing that your children are relaxed and safe in the environment that you have provided. Familiar surroundings provide a more comfortable environment for a child, which encourages them to embrace the fun and thoughtful activities we offer.

We Specialize in Offering a Play-Based, Thoughtful Learning Experience for Children.

Children are naturally motivated to play. Research shows play-based learning is successful by enhancing children’s academic and developmental learning outcomes by teaching them relevant skills. In a play-based program, children can explore, experiment, discover and problem solve in an imaginative hands on way. Our highly trained, skilled professionals encourage children’s learning through sensorial interactions that expand their thinking. Our approach strengthens the teacher, child, and parent relationship.

There is no limit to the fun that your child will have by enjoying the Perfectly Poppins experience. Don’t hesitate! Our team will ensure that your children have a “Poppin ” good time!

 

“Anything can happen if you let it!”
