Between Friends Daycare Programs
We believe in providing a safe, healthy, caring, and loving environment where children have the opportunity to grow and develop to their full potential, promoting good friendships and a good sense of self with compassion and cooperation. By providing adventure, encouragement, and opportunities for children to take risks at a very young age we see children learn, develop, grow in confidence and self-esteem, and build trust in themselves as they get older.
Through providing various opportunities away from the daycare and in the community we strive to foster a more well-rounded learning experience. We are committed to creating an atmosphere of safety, security and trust for the family. We believe in working in partnership with parents, supporting them in meeting their responsibilities with their children by offering support, guidance and access to other resources. Our success in working with families depends on hearing from them. We value their thoughts and ideas as they play a very important roll in the success of our child care.
