The Child Garden offers quality child care and educational programs in a loving, caring, and fun environment where children can develop a lifelong love of learning! Our original center in LaGrange was founded in 1997, and our other three centers in LaGrange, Grafton, Oberlin and Wellington, OH opened in subsequent years. We strive to provide children in Southern Lorain County and surrounding areas with the ability to develop their skills and grow in a nurturing setting.

A Great Place to Grow!

Each of our centers meets and exceeds all state licensing and training. Our qualified, trained staff offers day care, preschool, before and after school care, summer camp, as well as healthy and organic meals to help children grow up strong and healthy! Each of our teachers is background-checked and has completed a two-week training and orientation. We are proud to have won Best of Lorain County 2017 and to be a Step Up to Quality award winner.

Our Philosophy

We believe that children learn best by actively participating in their world through a variety of experiences that enhance decision-making, mastery of skills, imagination and the discovery of their unique self.


Our Purpose

The purpose of the center is to provide a quality child care and pre-school for the community. That each child has a kind, safe, healthy, nurturing environment in which they can be the unique individual that they are.

“The staff at the Child Garden are amazing, so friendly and attentive to my child's needs- it's great. My child just started to go there a couple months ago- everything has been going so well.”

Christina H.

“I have both my girls enrolled at the child garden, one at Wellington and one at Oberlin. The teachers and directors are so helpful and you can tell they truly care for your child! I would recommend all four centers to anyone who is looking for child care.”

Holly C.

“My children have been cared for by The Child Garden since each of my maternity leaves ended. There is no place else I'd trust to help my children learn and grow. Both of my girls attended daycare and preschool. They were helped to develop a love of learning and their teachers always made sure they loved them just the way they were. I recommend TCG to everyone and still use the before and after care program now that my girls are in elementary school. The programs like music, Kidz Art, yoga and more make the programs more than just a daycare!”

“The Child Garden is like a second family. Everyone from the administrators, teachers, children and families are very sweet, kind and caring people. I am lucky to be a part of this family. Working here is so much better than I imagined and I am grateful to our team for teaching me so much in such a short time.”
