Rattles to Tassels

Our Jacksonville Childcare And Preschool Learning Center Programs Are The Best

Located in Jacksonville’s Southside, our childcare programs incorporate creative play, song and dance, planned activities, arts and crafts, and daily outside play activities. We provide childcare for children ages six weeks through five years old.

Our Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) program is available to children age four with a birthday on-or-before September 1st of each school year. Our Jacksonville Summer VPK program is for children age 4 with a birthday after September 1st. Children ages five and seven love our Summer Camp.

 

A Message to Parents from the Director

I believe when you help a child learn, you’ve enhanced a child’s life. Since 2013, Rattles to Tassels Learning Center has been enhancing lives, one child and family at a time. We provide each child and family with a secure, comfortable feeling about our learning center. Parents trust us and value our leadership. They know we’re focused on developing and strengthening each child educationally, physically and emotionally. We want every minute a child spends with us to be the best it can be.

We’re inspired and reminded that our work really matters and very thankful to our parents who take the time to personally support and give us their confidence. Open communication gives parents peace of mind knowing their child is in good hands. Having grown from a small, determined group of volunteer teachers into a full-size infant daycare, preschool and pre-kindergarten provider, we have touched hundreds of lives in Jacksonville. We’re thankful to the many families, childcare professionals and volunteers who continue to believe in our work and join us in fulfilling our Mission.

It’s our honor to be chosen as the Southside community’s Child Care Center of Choice for the past three years. We look forward to serving our families because we, too, believe each child deserves quality childcare and education..
