The POSH Philosophy

The Philosophy at Posh Tots Academy promotes an emotionally healthy, secure and nurturing environment for all children.  We believe our children deserve the opportunity to grow socially, emotionally and academically, and therefore, strive to offer a warm and caring atmosphere for children and their families.  


We also believe in physical development in conjunction with the social, emotional, and academic and provide a facility with a brand new 1600 square foot indoor gym and over three acres of expansive outside areas that offer children many opportunities to use their bodies in conjunction with exploring, experimenting, and developing self-care skills and independence.  Posh Tots Academy believes our program promotes the development of children to their fullest potential.

At Posh Tots, we recognize that you have a difficult schedule and support parents the best we can.  We offer drop-in care and early drop-off so that your schedule can be accommodated.  We recognize the importance of work, and the stress and demands placed on parents.  We strive to make it easier on parents by giving them the knowledge that their children are in good hands.
