Rhymes and Reasons Child Development Center

Rhymes and Reasons is a center that offers a safe and fun learning environment for two's to school age children. Rhymes and Reasons is dedicated to educate your child in a fun loving learning environment.

Opened in 1996, owner and director Gail Aznar wanted to create a place where parents would feel safe to leave their children and to give them and education while they are with us. We provide before and after care for school aged children and we have classrooms for two's three's and four's.

Operating as usual


Today in the threes we finished making sunshine to encourage the sun to stay out. Miss Shannon choreographed On Our Way from Moana.


This week in the twos room they are learning about the moon. Today they made their own night skies!


We love when the Carroll county public library comes to visit!


We had a great Easter celebration, the Easter bunny came and hid eggs for the kiddies to find


When it's raining we still have a good time playing inside. Little miss baker


We are learning about birds in the threes class this week. Today we tried to keep the bird eggs in the nest. How do you think that went?


The threes made beautiful flowers today! Come on spring!

Happy Thanksgiving from the turkeys, pilgrims and Indians! We had a great Thanksgiving pre-feast, thanks to the parents!

[11/18/16]   Mrs. Nicole asked her kids this week if they want a baby brother or sister because they were talking about families. One boy said "I have a baby in my belly."

This should be entertaining.
