Description: Gentle Touch Day Care strives to provide a warm, safe, and nurturing environment that facilitates the growth, discovery and learning of children, through a variety of developmentally appropriate experiences. Our program is designed to provide experiences that enhance the "whole child". It is our goal to meet the social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs of each child.
Children learn through daily play and learning activities and experiences to make decisions, carry out responsibilities and to express themselves creatively. GT kids will be exposed to music, dance, movement, art, science, reading, dramatic play, life skills, and in-door and out-door physical activities. A daily schedule helps to provide a familiar routine; balancing active and quiet play and discovery. We strive to achieve positive outcomes for children through the partnership of child, parent, school and community. When it comes to your kids, nothing less than the highest standards will do!
Where possible, ChildcareCenter provides inspection reports as a service to families. This information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed. We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues. Reports can also be verified with your local daycare licensing office.
