Infant/Toddler Program



***We are currently looking for new infant and toddler friends to join in our learning fun! Call 989-754-0381 for information.***

"Our four-year old daughter began the child care program at Carrollton when she was just five months old. While the decision for me to return to work was a difficult one, choosing Carrollton for our child care was not. We were immediately impressed with the quality of the child care center and the caregivers. Their loving approach, daily routines and activities, cleanliness and attention to exploration and learning made Carrollton Child Care our top choice. Since we are so happy, our daughter continues to be enrolled in the program, as is our infant son. We are proud to have Carrollton as their home away from home."

- Allison Metiva-Wajer, parent & teacher
