It's not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It's our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.”
L. R. Knost
The Caring Place recognizes that all children grow and develop at their own individual pace. We offer a program designed to benefit the whole child. Families, cultures and community are important to the development of curriculum and implementation of the daily operations of The Caring Place. A relaxed, home-like and loving environment allows the children to discover, explore, and become independent. A competent, professional, caring and energetic staff facilitate the children's developmental growth. The staff understands that family and culture are important and incorporates and encourages these ideals and values in daily life at The Caring Place. Parent involvement is very important to the continued growth of all areas of the program. The Caring Place staff continually attend professional development conferences and college classes to keep current in the field of Early Education and Care. The Caring Place maintains CORI checks on all staff and ensures a safe, nurturing, loving, and warm environment for your child to learn and grow.
