About the Provider

Description: My name is Alice Crouch and I am the owner of Children’s Nest Day School. We have seven schools in the greater Tampa Bay area: one each in Temple Terrace, Hyde Park, Town and Country, Plant City, Brandon, Northdale and Lutz. I began in the child care industry by teaching in the classroom. In 1979, I felt there was a great need for quality child care in the Tampa area. That was when my company was founded. Today we have a combined enrollment of over 750 children.

Our primary purpose is to provide the highest quality of service to the children and families we serve. We’ve made a great effort to insure there is a balance of quality with affordability. We are not simply baby-sitters. We provide stimulating, developmentally-appropriate curriculum for all our younger preschool children along with fun, exciting activities for our older school-age children. We supply the tools and materials that stimulate self confidence, a positive self image and a life long desire for learning. Additionally, each of our schools is nationally-accredited, and we take great pride in holding ourselves to the highest standards in the industry.

The Children’s Nest Child Care Centers, Inc. is locally owned and operated. I am actively involved in the daily operation of each school; if you have a problem, I will handle it quickly and to your satisfaction.

We take tremendous pride in our reputation as one of Tampa’s finest child care facilities, and we work hard every day to keep it that way. Thank you for giving us a chance to serve you.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My grandson has been at The Children Nest since he was two and a half, he is now seven. It is the best place. When your child can’t wait to get there, you know they are doing something right. We love Ms Cheyanne, Ms. Tracy, Ms. Hailey, Ms Annette, Ms Kathy, Ms Linda and all the other wonderful people there. I’m so thankful for!
