Your child’s home away from home

About Ellie's Academy

Welcome to Ellie’s Academy! Our childcare center is dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment for children as young as 6 weeks up to 5 years of age. We believe that every child is unique and deserves the opportunity to learn and grow in a supportive and loving environment. At Ellie’s Academy, we strive to create a home away from home where children can feel comfortable and confident in their surroundings. 

Our Approach to Education

We help students understand their needs while encouraging strong communication with parents


We believe that every child deserves to be treated with kindness and respect. Our staff members are dedicated to creating a warm and welcoming environment where children feel safe and loved. We take the time to get to know each child as an individual, and we work closely with parents to ensure that their child's unique needs are met.


We are committed to providing the highest quality care and education for young children. Our staff members are highly trained and experienced, using evidence-based practices to promote children's development. We are constantly seeking to improve our program and services and we welcome feedback from parents and other stakeholders.


We believe that childcare is a partnership between families, educators, and the community. We work closely with parents to ensure that their child's needs are met and encourage open communication and collaboration. As active members of the community, we participate in local events and support local businesses and organizations.

What Parents are Saying About Us

"When it came time to choosing a childcare center for our son, we knew whole heartily that Ellie’s Academy was the best choice! We knew several families who had sent their own kids there and they came highly recommended! Since day one our son has loved going to school! From the amazing director to the great teachers, I have had peace of mind every single day. What makes Ellie’s Academy different than the rest is that you and your child aren’t just a number there, you are a part of a FAMILY! "

- Tatiana C.
"Love, love, love this center. My child has learned and progressed so much here she is blasting thru milestones. It’s more of a preschool setting than just a babysitter, the kids learn here and get prepared for public school. I was so nervous because my daughter was just starting here after being home with me for a year. The teachers and staff have made me and my child feel like we are apart of the family. I highly recommend this place to any parent looking for a safe place for their child to stay. It feels like a second home if you will."

- Cassandra D.
"Choosing childcare for your babies is not an easy one! We are so glad that we followed our gut with Ellie’s Academy. Our children are students there for the last two years and we couldn’t be happier. The teachers and owners have become second family. Everyone is warm, happy, and patient. For reference, our daughter is now almost 6 years old, and our son is 8 months. Due to their gap in age, we’ve had the opportunity to get to know everyone very well! We highly recommend this place."
