The Vineyard Children’s Center provides a safe and loving environment for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. We are licensed by the State of Michigan (#DC810296328) and are pending accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). We are open from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. Our facility is spacious and well equipped, with a large outdoor play area. We offer some of the most affordable and flexible enrollment options you’ll find in Ann Arbor. Vineyard Children’s Center is committed to helping parents provide their children with a safe, nurturing and interesting environment where the child can grow in all areas of their life: socially, emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually. We do this by providing responsive and individualized care and by building a trusting and safe relationship with each child and a partnership with each family. We use an excellent, research-based curriculum. Infants and younger toddlers focus on routines and experiences, while older children engage in eleven different interest areas. Our faith element includes prayer before meals and a focus on the love of God shown through how we treat each other. (Children from all faiths and backgrounds are welcome and respected at our center). Each child receives loving care and attention at Vineyard Children’s Center. We strive to care for each child as if he or she were our own.
