Smart Strides is dedicated to providing developmentally appropriate experiences to help build a strong foundation as a first step to a bright and successful future for all children. It achieves this through support and communication among its families and employees.
Smart Strides is committed to providing a positive and loving environment to foster growth in all areas of a child’s life. It accepts children of various ages regardless of race, color, national origin, or gender. While engulfing the child in academic play, it develops their social, emotional, cognitive, motor (fine and gross), and adaptive skills. We strive to enable children to form a positive self-image and grow their creativity by expressing themselves freely. All of this is done while gaining independence and self-control. We do this by nurturing all areas of development in fun engaging play and activity.
