Your baby’s brain is developing at an amazing rate, so our infant nursery is all about brain development. In our infant program, we teach tummy time for social bonding and physical development and baby sign language to help your child communicate their needs. Your primary caregiver will help your baby progress through important developmental milestones while working closely with you to provide consistency with feeding, playing and sleeping schedules.

Our toddler program is designed to meet your toddler’s physical and emotional needs, while helping them adjust to a more formal learning environment. When your child shows they are developmentally ready to start potty-training, your teacher will partner with you to create consistency from school to home.
Our early preschool program is designed to assist during this important transition from toddlerhood to preschool! Our teachers provide a more structured environment that responds to your child’s natural curiosity and offers room for exploration, learning and fun.
Our preschool curriculum is focused on providing your child with a solid foundation in the skills needed for Kindergarten and beyond. The preschool years are a time of great creativity and social growth. Our teachers focus on introducing structure and routine, while facilitating fun activities that develop your child’s language and literacy, math, science, creativity, Spanish and social skills.
Our Pre-Kindergarten program prepares your child for the adventures of kindergarten. With a careful balance of freedom and instruction, your child will participate in interesting learning activities in language, math, science, social studies, Spanish, music and art, with a special emphasis on STEAM. Special focus is also given to building your child’s social and emotional development, language and literacy, executive function and creativity.
Our school-age program offers a safe, fun and supervised environment to start and end the school day. Your child will participate in fun, interactive learning experiences, receive homework assistance from teachers, spend time with friends, and exert some energy on the playground! Transportation to and from local elementary schools is provided. Fresh breakfast is served in our before-school program with an afternoon snack served in our after-school program.
NEW e-Learning Program!
If your child’s school doesn’t open for in-person class or you prefer a virtual option, we can help. We’ll be offering on-site full-day and part-day care for school-aged children — and will help facilitate your public school’s e-Learning. This means your child can attend their school virtually at Foundations, with educators available to help answer questions.
Extreme STEAM Summer Camp at Foundations is fun, innovative and deceivingly educational! Extreme STEAM is a STEAM-infused summer camp. Each week of camp features a new theme packed with fun and educational STEAM projects and at least 2 field trips per week.
Hello! My name is Marisa Fleming. I have over 19 years of experience as a teacher and child development administrator. I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education from Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, PA. My family and I moved to South Carolina in February of 2019. Outside of being a Center Director, I also serve at my church on the children’s ministry mentoring the many youth that come every Sunday and Wednesday!
I have been blessed with 3 beautiful children, two daughters and a son. With a 22-year-old college student, 15-year old 10th grader, and 12-year old 7th grader, there is never a dull moment in our home! My family and I enjoy attending church events as well having fun and silly family time together.
I will put all my energy and dedication towards providing a quality atmosphere for every family to grow and learn together. I am excited to bring my knowledge and expertise to the Simpsonville area and I’m looking forward to creating close relationships with those in the Simpsonville, SC community.
At drop off my son wiggles from my arms and beelines it straight to his teachers to hug them -- it is obvious that he feels safe & loved by them.
My husband and I are very pleased with the care our son receives at Foundations. He is thriving there, and we love to see how excited he is to see his teachers and buddies each day. It is such a comforting feeling each day to know that your child is truly cared for, and that is what we have found at Foundations.
My daughter is learning and developing more and more each day. I can come to work with confidence that my daughter is safe and well taken care of each day.
