Kitten’s class: During activity time this week the toddlers work on making pumpkins, tracing the shape trapezoid, painting with purple, and counted to 6! For a science activity the kittens made the color purple using food coloring.

Welcome To Caring Corner Preschool and Childcare!


As a parent myself, I understand it can be a difficult time choosing a childcare
that we are comfortable with and I realize that a loving and positive atmosphere is
important to your family. We are proud to offer your family high quality care. At
Caring Corner Preschool and Childcare, your child is able to build a relationship
with myself as well as my staff. We don't have a lot of staff turnover here, so your
child knows who will be caring for them day after day. This helps children be more
secure in their environment.

Our primary goal is to support each child in a safe and loving environment that
builds self esteem, encourages living skills, and actively promotes each child's
sense of curiosity and discovery.

We believe that children learn through play in a structured environment. We
provide both teacher initiated activities and also encourage child initiated activities.
We have an four different classrooms based on children’s ages that provide plenty
of space for learning activities such as manipulative, blocks, arts and crafts,
reading area, imaginative play, and so much more. We also have a large outdoor
play area that provides opportunities for learning and large motor activities. There
is a covered area that allows children to play outside no matter what the weather
conditions are.

I know in the past when my own kids have been in childcare, the one that you
choose truly makes all the difference in the world! It truly does make it much
easier on everyone involved if you as a parent can go to work and not worry all day
long about your child! So again, thank-you for your interest and if you have any
questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
