About Us

Learn. Share. Laugh. Grow. Blossom.



I am Fran Hernandez and I have been in the child care industry for 13 years and I opened Poppy’s Playhouse in March of 2018. Madison has been our director for 4 years. We respect and appreciate the trust you have placed in us and our center to care for your child. We believe that parents are the most important people in a child’s life and we will do everything in our power to support you as a family.  


We strive to give your child the best possible care we can provide. We work best when working in tandem with you and our other families. We do need your help by keeping us informed about any concerns, favorite foods, allergies, fears, or special interests your child has. We, in return, will share information about your child’s growth and activities during the time spent in our program.  

Our Philosophy

Poppy’s Playhouse provides a safe, nurturing environment where children 6 weeks to Pre-K will be stimulated and develop socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively and where their families are supported.

Our working philosophy at Poppy’s Playhouse is “Learning Through Play” where children manipulate a developmentally appropriate environment provided by our staff.  We value individual differences in children and use our environment as a dominant role in a child’s development.  We will strive to work as a team with the parents to achieve our goals, not only for children as individuals, but also for the program as a whole. In providing services to you and your children, we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, disability, cultural heritage, political beliefs, marital status, national origin or sexual orientation.

At Poppy’s Playhouse, we believe that children of all ability levels are entitled to the same opportunities for participation, acceptance and belonging in child care. We will make every effort and possible accommodation to encourage active participation of all children in our program based on his/her individual capabilities and needs.

We value the development of self-discipline and self-esteem in children. Therefore, we at Poppy’s Playhouse are committed to providing quality child care in a family-like atmosphere.
