Welcome to the Carrot Patch!
Directors Suzanne Miller and Nicole Miller Stevens are a mother-daughter team who opened the first Carrot Patch Early Learning Center in 2005 to bring the best possible early childhood experience to area families. We are now delighted to offer families a choice of two top-notch, yet unpretentious early learning centers where children thrive in a safe, fun, nurturing and creative environment year-round. Children, parents, and staff find a sense of community, and our passion for education and love for children informs every detail and every decision we make.

WE ARE OPEN AND GOING STRONG!
With a focus on maintaining a safe and healthy school, we have incorporated many CDC and OEC best practices. And as a nature and outdoor-focused program, we are able to spend much of our time out where the air is clean and virus-free! Limited spaces are still available for the summer and 2023-2024 academic year programs. Waitlist registration is available. Call or email to learn more or to arrange an individual after-hours tour.
