Children’s Village

Children's Village is a state-of-the-art learning center that strives to meet children's developmental needs while promoting school readiness using the High/Scope Curriculum.

In addition, Children's Village offers intergenerational programming in partnership with Lutheran Life Villages. intergenerational programming includes: Mail Delivery, Nature, Walks, Exercise Class, Lunch, and Arts and Crafts. Older adults have so much wisdom to offer, and young children are eager to learn. At Children's Village, they become "co-explorers" — learning and growing together.
