About the Provider


A Message From Mrs. Benita Taylor (Owner/Administrator)

Pure At Heart Childcare began in my home in the City of Hampton, VA of the year 2002. The vision came to me over a period of time, blossoming from a desire to be an entrepreneur. For the last 12 years, it has been my desire to teach the children as well as provide a loving Christian environment for them while their parents are away. 

The goal of our preschool program is to encourage the physical, cognitive, emotional, and social development of each child through imaginative play and creative learning. This is accomplished by offering a broad spectrum of hands on activities and age appropiate experiences using a wide variety of education principles. Here at Pure At Heart, we strive to help each child learn the basic essentials while displaying a foundation of Christ. It is our mission to lead early learners into the development of self confidence and individuality, so that they can transition more easily into their elementary education and become a health part of society.

Thank You,

The owner does park the car in front of the building. I've observed that the key is always left in the door an the doorbell doesn't work. The staff on Mercury are "ratchet" the facility itself looks ratchet. Broken tables, no organization w the classroom or children and no educational toys for the younger children. Plan on withdrawing my child soon. I don't do reviews but I had to with this Daycare.

My nephew attended this daycare a little while ago and not soon after we enrolled him we pulled him right out!!!! Not pleased at all with this establishment.

I have toured this provider's facility, but have not used its services

I personally wouldn't leave my child here. Just looking in the front room is dingy and dark. I didn't even go back for the full tour. I'm all about first impressions and I'm a good observer.

They refuse to provide the EIN - to file for child care on taxes.

they require you to pay in cash -? why is that?

my son - had an accident in his pants - and no one cleaned him up and was obvious what happened


they keep the door locked- with keys in the door - yet no one available - to open - if in the back.

report to all those agencies - that need to know

The last review has to be all lies! I have worked here since Jan. of this year and none of this is true. Ms. Taylor is an awesome owner and administrator. There were some employees that were dismissed for neglecting children, so maybe they are just mad. Just remember....what goes around comes right back around.
As for the daycare, these children are exposed to a solid foundation that all children deserve. The facility is clean and we have fun everyday! To God be the glory!
