No one is more important to your child’s development than you!
When parents and teachers work together, magic happens.
At Darlene’s Wee Care 4 Kids, we are fully staffed with amazing child care workers who have your child’s best interest at heart and are dedicated to your child’s developmental and educational growth. However, we know that we are simply supplements to your child’s world, with you at the center of it. That’s why we structure our programs to maximize parent involvement, with lots of communication and simple but effective at-home learning projects to help you reinforce your child’s development at home. Parents are also welcome to join us for field trips
The key to any successful child care program is not only honoring parent’s wishes and mimicking parenting styles, but by also keeping an open line of communication that welcomes feedback in both directions. Parental involvement is important to maintaining family values and allowing discipline and routines to work parallel at daycare as it does at home. This helps to provide the smoothest transition and create a less stressful experience for you, your child, and our staff.
YOU are your child’s most important teacher!
At Darlene’s Wee Care 4 Kids, most of our staff members are parents themselves. We understand the importance of parent and family involvement in the educational success and developmental growth of children. We are not simply caretakers in your absence, we are your teammate in raising well-rounded children. We encourage family networking, parental feedback, and involvement in events, field trips, and even as volunteers.
For a daycare center that is as invested in the safety, development, and welfare of your child as you are, contact us at Darlene’s Wee Care 4 Kids! Schedule a tour or enroll your kids into one of our programs today!
