About the Provider

Description: Welcome to My Child’s 1st School! We are so happy that you have landed here. This is the first step you and your children will take to ensuring that you have the best education and care for them when you cannot be there to provide it. We have raised our own children with the same premises that we have founded this daycare center on, and as mothers we know how much you want your child to be safe and grow at the same time. Having been through this process of helping children grow while ensuring their health and safety, we know difficult a task it can be, especially for a working family. We offer specials on a regular basis for new students and their families, and military members as we live right near a base and are happy to support those who work to ensure our liberties. If you are a base family and need to find a daycare provider for your children, we encourage you to visit our school. We are sure that you and yours will love our place and it will be our pleasure to help you with the small things that we can do for those who serve our state and nation.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

My child began attending My Child's 1st School when he was 6 weeks old in March of 2016. As a first time mom I felt so guilty about having someone else take care of my baby while I was at work but the staff made this transition easier than I ever could have imagined. The entire team made me feel so secure knowing that my son is in a safe, clean environment and in the most loving hands. When we pull into the parking lot each morning my son gets so excited! The combination of the professionalism and parenting experience placed in this facility is outstanding. It is obvious that they are not just there to watch him but also help him learn, grow, and love him like he is one of their own. Every teacher there knows his name and always greets us with a "Good Morning" and tells him "Bye" when we leave. I could not ask for a better group of teachers and caregivers. The quality of care and education that he is receiving is above and beyond what I expected. The saying, 'It takes a village to raise a child', is so true and we are one lucky family to have My Child's 1st School be apart of our village!
