Description: Our educational philosophy is based on our knowledge of how children develop and learn. We strive to create safe, nurturing, child-centered environments that are age-appropriate for children eight weeks to five years old. We are concerned with all aspects of a childâ€™s development â€“ emotional, social, physical, cognitive, creative and aesthetic. Respect for individual needs and the development of self-esteem in each child is fostered. We support and work with parents as the primary caregivers of their children.
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.
