EOA Children's Services

Our Mission is Empowering Children and Families to Learn, Connect, and Succeed.

EOA Children's Services is a child and family development program that

provides comprehensive, holistic education to children and families.

EOA Children’s Services is more than child care. We are a child development program where children develop a positive view of themselves and a sense of responsibility for their actions. A place where young children gain school readiness skills while learning through interacting with materials and sharing experiences with other children, their families, and their teachers. With opportunities for children to explore, develop problem-solving skills, improve body coordination, develop social skills, and stimulate creativity. We provide support for families as the primary educators of their children, and the opportunity to work closely with staff to grow and develop as a family.
