About the Provider



At the core of our center is a strong belief that children thrive when they feel loved, safe and supported. Our primary goal at Best Friend's is for each child to know they are loved by our staff, safe in their surroundings with us, and supported in their needs. Although we are a center based daycare, it is very important to us that our school has a family feel. Our owner, director, and multiple teachers have children of their own attend the school, and we pour our hearts and souls into the classrooms everyday to treat all our children as if they were our own. Our director has a passion for celebrating the diversity and culture that our students bring to our center, engaging our classrooms in exciting and joyful experiences as they learn to explore their world. Our owner is hands-on, with a passion for childcare excellence, businesses with a social mission, and fostering employee growth. We serve children from 8 weeks up to 7 years old, and we assist with remote learning for those children enrolled in school systems whose parents need a safe place for them during the day. Our main goal during COVID is that no child falls behind! We look forward to meeting you, and we look forward to raising our children together.
