Studies show that the early experiences both infants and toddlers have in their young lives play a significant role in cognitive, socio-emotional, and physical development. Because 82 percent of brain growth occurs by the age of three, these experiences shape the aptitudes and attitudes children will have for the rest of their lives.

At The Peanut Gallery in Temple, Texas we optimize this critical time by exposing our youngest students to an array of fun, developmentally stimulating activities. From cuddling, smiling, and cooing with our infants to reading, singing, and dancing with our toddlers, we ensure your children are safe, cozy, and content in our childcare all day while you are away at work.

Childcare Programs Offered:

  • Infant Care (ages 6 weeks to 1 year). Our infant daycare program helps maintain the warmth, bonds, and security your child already enjoys with you at home.
  • Toddler Care (ages 1 to 2). This toddler childcare program helps encourage your toddler’s sense of discovery through active learning.

Our Philosophy

At The Peanut Gallery, Temple, we believe that involving parents in the development of their children is an important key to their future success in school and life. In our early childhood education center, the fun and learning never stops.

What Makes Our Childcare Center in Temple, Texas Unique

We understand how difficult it can be for parents to entrust the care of their children to others and we do everything in our power to keep families connected to their children while they are in our care. We deliver daily updates with photos through Kid Reports and we also have an open door policy that encourages parents to drop in for a smile or a snuggle with their precious little one anytime during the day. Our kids love this policy and often light up when they see mom or dad walk through the door!

Working for The Peanut Gallery has been an incredible experience. I have enjoyed every aspect of each of the positions I have held and each position has taught me to be a better person. I enjoy the relationships I have made with each family that comes through our doors and having several families with us for multiple children. Cadance Education has set the bar very high for early childhood care and that pushes me to not only meet the standards, but to go above and beyond to provide not only the best care for young minds, but to provide a loving, homelike environment for our children. One where our families know their child is in the best of hands for care and learning.

I have been a teacher at Candence Education for 11 years and working with children for 15 years. Children’s milestones are what I love watching and helping them meet. Every child is their own person, even when there only 6 weeks old and I love getting to be a part of that every day. My husband and I have been married for 4 years and have one amazing Son. My extra time is spent enjoying my family.

I will truly miss the staff at the Peanut Gallery and the outstanding services they provided for my child. Their professionalism all while providing down to earth care was appreciated. They tried to stay ahead of things to avoid any mishaps (such as provide me inventory stats on wipes and pampers). If there was an issue, I was called immediately with detail (once my child was scratched while the toddlers played). I'm going to miss the bright smiles, encouraging conversations, and the services they have provided for well over a year. Keep up the awesome work Ladies!

Every one of my kids have been going to the Peanut Gallery for many years and I everyone of them has enjoyed going every day. Each have learned so much and the Pre-K curriculum is outstanding. The staff is attentive, supportive, and child-focused to their needs. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
