A New Concept
Whistle Stop Station and By the Barnyard Gate was created for the kid in all of us. Our foyer is a fun place easily accessible to school visitors, students and parents, and keeps unnecessary traffic away from the learning centers. The classrooms are self contained so the children feel safe and secure. The children have beautiful outdoor playgrounds with age appropriate equipment to help build confidence and large motor skills. We have also added a large indoor play land for those hot and rainy days.
What’s in Store for Your Child
We believe the most important beginning of a child’s life is the training they receive. Our main objective is to teach responsibility, to be courteous to others, build lifetime learning and developmental experiences, and encourage talents and gifts of each child. We will fill your child’s day with play, drawing, painting, singing, and plain old letting kids be kids. Learn More
