Carousel in Depth

Our Staff

Carousel Preschool & Daycare Center was started in 1979 by the Mummerts. Carousel is a family owned and operated business. We have been a part of the Cypress School District Child Care program since 1980.


Carousel has been on campus at Vessels Elementary since the mid 80's.  We are licensed by the state of California and the Department of Social Services. We are open year round to meet your childcare needs.
