Learning through Play and Exploration
At Riley Crossing Child Care, your family is our focus. Our child care philosophy is learning through play and exploration. We offer a unique program that brings multiple generations together in a stimulating co-learning environment. As children and older adults share memories, play games and create together, an unmistakable bond forms that transcends generations. For kids who don’t live near their own grandparents, this connection can be especially poignant.
Infant, Toddler and Preschool Classrooms
Here at Riley Crossing Child Care, we offer care and education to children ages 6 weeks to 5 years of age. Our warm and home-like environment has 6 classrooms for our children.
Our caring infant teachers will welcome our youngest children ages 6 weeks to 12 months and 12 months to 18 months into comforting rooms which are focused on providing individual care to each special little one.
In our two toddler rooms, our fun and energetic toddlers will have the freedom to learn and grow at their own pace, with additional structure built into the day to help develop all 7 areas of skills needed to move on to our older classrooms.
Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten children will explore and experiment in the different learning centers available. In addition to preparing for kindergarten, our preschoolers learn an important lesson in socialization and cultural awareness through our Grandfriends’ scheduled times throughout the week.

Connected to Outdoor Fun
Active play is essential for child development. Our beautiful, 9-acre campus offers an abundance of green space with gardens and extensive walking paths connecting to nearby lakes. Our outdoor playgrounds and indoor playroom allow children to actively explore several times throughout the day, no matter the weather.
Children are able to explore the outdoor environment around them as our special Grandfriends join in the activities or watch from their outdoor patio area.
Our play through exploration philosophy provides an environment where children can explore throughout the day in classroom learning centers, large muscle activities, MacPhail music times, and small group instruction at their own pace. Our Teachers set up and facilitate the environment for all children to reach their potential. With our unique co-learning environment, Riley Crossing Kids learn alongside our Grandfriends which help them see beyond their own small worlds. They will understand more about life and discover many similarities between themselves and their new friends. This understanding and love will lay a foundation for celebrating diversity, a skill that they will use throughout their lives.
