Pumpkin Place

Conveniently located at the I-55/I-74 interstate exchange, Pumpkin Place is the region’s premier child care facility. We opened our doors in 1979 before the term “day care” was commonplace. At Pumpkin Place, we offer a range of programs, including:

  • Part-time Afternoons M-F and full time care 
  • Stand-alone preschool program 
  • Half-Day Kindergardenten Support Program 
  • School Age Programs
  • School Age Teachers 2018-2019 School Year

Pumpkin Place provides a special kind of nurturing. Many of our original “pumpkins” have gone on to return here decades later with their own children, or have become a teacher themselves. It means the world to us that our former children have such fond memories of their days at Pumpkin Place.

Over the years, our curriculum has grown more sophisticated. Our on-staff kindergarten teacher has developed lesson plans that complement the education framework of the Morton area half-day Kindergarten program. 

Programs are designed to cultivate skills that are the foundations of happiness and success: cooperative and individual problem-solving, early literacy skills, empathy, and emotional intelligence with the goal of nurturing life-long learners.
