Welcome to Child Care and Early Learning of Smithtown
Story Book Hollow is a private accredited learning center where we partner with parents to foster a life long quest for learning in children and build a better foundation for life. We believe that children learn best through play. When a child enjoys her early education experience, what’s learned during those moments will be better retained. This promotes physical, intellectual, social and emotional development that will prepare him or her for higher learning through out the future years.
