Child Care Services

Nothing is more exciting than watching children discover the world around them. Our curriculums are tailored to the interests of each class, carefully designed to strengthen their weaknesses and strengths. Creative teaching leads to creative learning and this is accomplished through the use of fine & gross motor activities, stories, songs and movement.

Country Grove strongly believes that each child should be allowed to grow and develop at their own pace. Special attention is given to social-emotional skills with lots of love and encouragement from our caregivers. Our loving and dedicated staff use positive guidance techniques to nurture a healthy self image and self esteem. We will encourage their natural curiosity by offering developmentally progressive programs, which allow exploration and growth of their own natural abilities.

Infants

Will be provided with a separate sleeping and playing area. A minimum of one care provider/teacher will be with every 4 infants at all times. Children will be provided with a safe and loving environment. Each child will have his own crib. Staff will interact and provide stimulating play which promotes awareness of child's surroundings. We pride ourselves with the special care our little ones receive.

Waddlers

When a child is walking & at least 12 months old, we will transition him/her over to a more stimulating and age-appropriate program to allow the child to discover and explore his/her surroundings. We will continue to provide a safe and nurturing environment. A minimum of one care provider/teacher will be with every 4 waddlers.

Toddlers

Will be provided with a wide range of age appropriate toys, arts and crafts, sensory activities, gross motor play and other stimulating activities. A minimum of one care provider/teacher will be with every 5 toddlers at all times.
