Carriage House was established in 1973 as a not-profit preschool in the basement of The Father Dyer Church. After many years of fundraising, the doors to the new Carriage House opened in 1995, providing care for children as young as eight weeks though the age of six.


Our Mission

Carriage House is dedicated to fostering intellectual, social/emotional and physical development in a high quality early childhood setting; building meaningful relationships with families and our community, honoring childhood, and inspiring life-long learners that have a sense of global responsibility.


The Carriage House is an awesome community of teachers, parents and kids. My daughter has a hard time saying goodbye in the morning and the lead teacher always scoops her up with loving care and intentional distraction. Both she and I have learned and grown enormously as a result of the consistent structure of the program and thoughtful leadership and advice from the directors.

Carriage House is founded on the belief that the early childhood years are a critical time when children develop more rapidly and learn more readily than at any other period of life. It is for this reason that we believe that young children deserve an environment that fosters discovery and compliments individual learning styles and temperaments. To accomplish this, the Carriage House implements Developmentally Appropriate Practice as defined by the N.A.E.Y.C. (National Association for the Education of Young Children).
