About the Provider

Description: This daycare is owned by parents, Dawn and Roger Justice. We have an 8 year old son and a 12 year old daughter. Roger has been a pilot for the past 15+ years, while Dawn worked in restaurants, retail stores and then finally child care (over 7 years of experience, 5 as a Director). For years, we have experienced a few very tough times trying to provide peace of mind that our children were safe. We have dealt with babysitters, at-home day and night care, ministry-based day cares, and day care centers similar to this one. We have seen benefits and drawbacks to each, and have seen a broad spectrum of what is acceptable and what is not-so-acceptable. If you are in the same situation that we were in, or simply need someone just to watch your child for a couple of hours a day after school... we assure you that your needs are our number one concern. Our philosophy is that you, the parent and child are the reason we are in business. We want to put your mind at total ease when you leave your child in our care, keeping in mind many of the fears that we have had to face... neglect, abuse, lack of safety, etc. These threats can be overwhelming to even think about, so we will take these fears out of the equation.

I LOVE this daycare!!!! my daughter is special needs and it was very hard to find a place that would work with her. I found this day care and immediately loved how awesome Dawn is and how all the workers truly care about the kids. I drive 44 iles to and from, every morning before I go to work just to take her there. Any time I have had questions I get to talk to the actual owner, how often does that happen any where else... All these ladies take pride in there work. I recommend this place highly!!!!! I LOVE A New Dawn Daycare!!!!
