Mission Statement

Our goal is to give children the best possible start in life through providing a happy, healthy daycare and educational environment, focusing on:

In so doing, we will be building a foundation for learning and for developing interpersonal relationships which will be important for each child throughout life.

Rocking Horse Ranch serves families by offering a wide range of childcare opportunities. Through communicating with parents, serving as a parental resource, and planning family activities, we become "partners with parents educating children."


The curriculum is planned with age appropriate activities for each group based upon The Creative Curriculum by Teaching Strategies, Inc. At our center, young children learn through "hands on" experiences with educational toys and equipment. Teachers share music and stories during circletime, while allowing for child interaction during free play. There are designated themes each week with appropriate activities in each program area. Topics range from plants to folk tales, Australia to occupations. During the school year monthly field trips are scheduled for the preschool groups. For a monthly fee, children three to four years old may attend Nursery School from 9:00-11:30 a.m.
