Presence Life Connections

We’ve got you covered.

Presence Fortin Villa ExteriorIt’s hard to be away from your child. We get that. At Presence Fortin Villa Learning Center, we are your partner in parenting. We’ll update you on everything from fun, daily adventures to naptimes so you don’t miss a milestone. And your child will have room to grow with classes available from infants through pre-kindergarten and beyond. As a faith-based, mission driven learning center, our goal is to help each child grow to their greatest potential, both spiritually and academically.

Our stable staff of teachers ensures the consistency that your child needs. We provide a safe and secure environment, professionally cleaned each day.  Breakfast, lunch and snacks are served to keep your child happy and healthy.

Presence Fortin Villa is part of Presence Intergenerational Center, a one-of-a-kind day center where children and older adults spend time together. Beginning at age three, children participate in activities with Presence Heritage Day Break, an adult day center located within our building.

We invite you to visit Presence Fortin Villa. We provide a safe and nurturing environment for children of all ages.


We take care of infants ages six weeks to 15 months.  We play, sing and read with your baby with plenty of time for hugs, too.  Each day, you’ll receive a log of your baby’s feeding, sleeping, diapering and learning activities.

  • Schedules adapted to the likes (and dislikes!) of each infant as well as the routines of your home
  • Safe, soft spaces allow your child to learn how to roll over, pull up and more
  • A strong introduction to language development through books and music


Your baby is growing up! From 15 – 24 months, your baby will learn so much. We work with your toddler so he or she learns as much as possible while still having fun.  In a safe, loving environment, we nurture your child’s creativity. From puzzles and books to playing outside, every day is a new adventure. 


The fun and learning continue when your child moves up to our two-year-old room.  We help children learn skills like cleaning up and sharing, and we work on potty training, too. Beginning at age 2, your child will participate in an organized curriculum and learn valuable social skills.  Here are some of the fun activities we do every week:

  • Art projects
  • Story time and finger play
  • Dancing and singing

Three- and four-year-olds

Your child will love the playtime with other kids and the chance to do fun art projects.  You will love our educational programming and intergenerational activities.  Our curriculum includes special programs that are unique to our center.


You can rest easy knowing that your child will be ready for kindergarten next year.  We’ll make sure he or she knows everything from ABCs and 123s to social and life skills.  Full-time and part-time program options are available.

  • Little Picassos (with Jan Glazar from the Gretchen Charlton Art Gallery)
  • Godly Play
  • Healthy Habits (with a nutritionist from Presence St. Mary’s Hospital)

Ages six to 12

Your workday doesn’t have the same hours as a school day.  We have options to help make your day run smoothly:

  • Summer camp for children ages 6 – 12
  • Transportation to and from local schools
  • Before and after school care, beginning at 6 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m.
