Catherine Henris is the proud owner of this innovative childcare center located in Bellevue. She has been a customer of iWC since she purchased the center 14 years ago. She also has had a previous relationship with iWC at the other childcare centers she has been associated with for the past 27 years. Tommy Brown has been working with Mrs. Henris for over 26 years. Michael Czapleski is currently the DSR calling on the account.
This award winning childcare center offers programs for infants, toddlers, pre-school, and pre-K children. It is licensed for 290 children and is located in 2 highly secure buildings; one of which is solely an infant/nursery facility. Active Learning Center participates with Childcare Nashville/Cook’s Academy program which offers a Purchasing Alliance with iWC Food Service that provides daily menus planned by dieticians to help serve healthy meal options to the children. Catherine is proud to introduce the children to healthy eating habits and with certain age groups the center offers home style serving with the children serving themselves by passing the food around which helps teach them appropriate portion servings.
Active Learning Center is proud of the longevity of their staff in which the average tenure is 8 – 10 years with some having taught at the location for 18 – 26 years under the original owner who opened the facility 26 years ago. Every Fall Catherine hosts a Fall festival to give back to the community to show her appreciation for their support during the terrible flood suffered by Bellevue back in 2010 on her wonderful 6 ½ acre playground area. When it comes to what the center has to offer the children it has an innovative curriculum that develops an eagerness to learn in a fun, nurturing environment. The children explore fine arts, learn Spanish, sign language, and integrate fun, brain-stimulating activities. The infants and toddlers are loved and nurtured while pre-schoolers are readied for school with an eagerness to learn. This eagerness to learn accelerates their learning progress.
