About Us

Welcome to The Looking Glass presented by A Touch of Home Childcare

Welcome Families

The Looking Glass Learning Center offers quality, affordable childcare from infants through school age with home-style nurturing and center-based learning objectives. Children enjoy the fostering, loving, and creative atmosphere, while parents can feel confident knowing that their child is nurtured by caring, experienced, and educated caregivers.


Our work is child's play - literally! 

At The Looking Glass Learning Center we feel that play is the highest form of research and that children thrive in a learning environment that excites them.  Creative Curriculum is a play-based curriculum that takes learning objectives and creates an interactive classroom environment that meets each child where they are and  promotes social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth.  To learn more about this curriculum click on the link below:
