Although we have been providing childcare services since 1971, our intent to provide the highest quality, affordable child care and early education experiences available for your child has never wavered. Our people are standing in your place while you are on your job, so quality care, the kind you would give, is a very serious obligation for us. We look after your child with the same warm concern that you would. We want to be your home away from home.
Providing food and enough rest are part of this quality care. We prepare breakfast, a well-balanced lunch and a nutritious afternoon snack each day. In the summer children are able to help prepare food with ingredients they have grown at school. Planning the day so children don’t get overtired is a part of it. Comforting children when something goes wrong, just as you would do, is a steady concern.
While you are busy at your job, the children are busy learning with their friends. We believe “Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” – Fred Rogers). Children talk a lot as they play together. They look at books and pictures and exhibits in the rooms. They hear stories. They work on puzzles. They take trips. They paint. They work with clay and blocks. They pretend and make believe.
Having your child at Thomas Learning Centers means that your child has two sets of caring people, both of whom want the days to go well. We hope you will try us. We know you will be pleased.
