About Us

Advent Family

The longevity of our teachers speaks volumes to their commitment and passion for what they do. The best early childhood education exists here, within our nurturing childcare family. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to help children flourish academically, socially, emotionally and spiritually in school...and life.

Our Programs

We offer high quality early childhood education and loving care for children between the ages of 6 weeks old and 5.

Our Programs

Infant Care

The foundation of our infant care program is built around safety, nurturing love and individualized attention.  Most importantly, you'll find that our beautiful state-of-the-art facility was specifically designed and built with your child’s safety in mind.    

Toddler Program

 During this developmental stage, your child begins to gain independence.   We believe in allowing children to discover their world around them in a safe encouraging environment in order to build a foundation of confidence and positive self-esteem.    

Two Year Old Program

Children become more and more independent at this stage and need a safe environment that supports their cognitive and physical development.  Children enjoy structured playtime designed to  develop their fine and gross motor skills, listening and self-help skills.

Three Year Old Program

  The words that best describe this classroom is “discovery and development.”   Children participate in group and individual activities. They spend a lot of time developing their pre-reading, pre-math, and social skills.  We introduce group activities to strengthen confidence, character and values.  


 Your little one will continue his learning adventure with a desire to do things on his own and make new discoveries.  The curriculum we use was developed by over fifty pre-k teachers who deeply understand the needs of children and the importance of helping children develop at their own rate.     

Summer Camp

  A new adventure awaits campers every week as they enjoy exciting and fun activities during each themed week.  Best of all, your little ones are cared for in a positive environment where they develop and experience values like kindness, sharing and an appreciation of friendships.   

Parent Testimonials

Loving, Quality Child Care

 “We had our child at Advent for 3 years in their early learning and childcare programs. Our son is now finishing first grade in public school and is academically at the top of his class.   We feel very thankful and blessed to have been part of the Advent family.  The director sets high standards of quality that she adheres to and the teachers truly cared about how my child was learning and what rate would be best for him to move from one level of learning to the next.  I would highly recommend Advent to families who are looking for a safe, loving and quality learning environment!” – Advent alumni parent 

Advent Exceeded Our Expectations

 “As parents, placing your child in a child care setting is one of the most difficult decisions you have to make. Prior to the birth of our children, my husband and I researched our options. Advent Child Development Center came highly recommended by friends. When we met with the staff and toured the facility, the genuine care and love for the children was apparent. Advent Child Development Center has exceeded all of our expectations. Our children have thrived in the nurturing environment. As they have gotten older, the children tell us how much they enjoy “school” and cannot wait to tell us about their day. It gives us peace of mind to know that our children are well cared for in mind, body and spirit.” Michele 

Teachers are Loving and Patient

“My son has been a student of Advent CDC for 3 years. During this time it has been a pleasure dealing with everyone. All of his teachers have been extremely loving and patient. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who is interested in part-time. The staff is extremely flexible in schedules. This is a great school.” Jenn
