About the Provider

Description: Our philosophy is to have and create an environment where children are loved and cared for, and where they have a feeling of security, therefore promoting child growth and development.

The goal is to provide the best and most professional care for each child. Young children learn best when they have hands-on activities. Each child will be provided with experiences in social development, music, art, science, math, and practical life skills. These activities will be presented to each child on a developmentally appropriate level. Each child will be stimulated, challenged, and never put in the position of possibly failing to accomplish a task.

We want to maintain a good relationship with each child. Including the parents, so they can be successful. We, as caregivers and parents, need a good rapport with each other in order to provide an enriched stimulation environment so children will have a secure relationship with parents. We can gain the child’s trust and confidence, which will allow us to help them use self control and create a great learning environment.

Our personal goal is to try to educate parents, especially young parents, about children. In doing this, I hope to instill in parents the very important job they have, that they need to provide a safe and stress-free (as possible) environment at home, and to also understand and support their children. As child care professionals, our creed to the parents, with their help, is to shape and mold children’s minds by using a variety of positive guidance methods.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

This provider is horrible! I would not recommend them to anyone! They were verbally and physically abusive to my children and they don't care about the children, only themselves.

I have used this provider for less than 6 months

I would not recommend this place to anyone. This place is unsafe for children and staff does not care about the children. Staff are known to sleep during shifts and be in their personal phones when they should be interacting with the children.
