History: Little Frogs & Polliwogs has been operating since 1979. Geraldine Silck is the current owner and purchased the center in 2004.
We are very proud of our center and the caregivers who work here. Our policy has always been and will remain an “open-door” policy. We have an honest and comfortable relationship with the families who are enrolled. We look forward to adding your family to ours.
About Us: At Little Frogs and Polliwogs, we pride ourselves on the professionalism of our staff. Many of our Lead Teachers are degreed teachers, who, along with other staff members, continue their education by taking college courses and attending workshops. Each staff member is required to take at least eighteen hours of workshops per year. We strive to ensure that 100% of our staff are CPR and First Aid certified and that many staff members take a water safety course.

Our mission is to have a positive and lasting effect on every child who enters our center. We strive to help children tap into their potential, create happy memories, and develop a positive self image that will guide their future for many years to come.
We believe that play is a child’s work and that, through hands-on and creative activities and exploration and experimentation, we can help to instill a sense of self-esteem and a strong desire to learn. We endeavor to provide each child with a nurturing, healthy and stimulating environment where each child can comfortably reach his/her full potential.
Partnering with our richly diverse families, we strive to create a community of trust and mutual respect for all.
