Getting to know us

Thank you for enrolling in Childs Play Fun and Learning Center. Please allow me to tell you a little about myself. My name is Nichol Childs and I am an in home daycare provider.  Having been a working mom myself I understand how difficult it is for parents to find good quality care. I feel I have the love, knowledge, experience and qualities needed to provide a warm, loving environment in which children can learn and grow. I believe that children are the most important part of our future, and I will work with you to help establish the solid foundation children need to feel secure and provide stability for their future.

I take my profession as a childcare provider, not a "babysitter" very seriously. I have over 12 years of childcare experience. I also have CPR & first aid current at all times. Although in home childcare is a form of self-employment, unlike other businesses; there is no room for physical growth or expansion due to licensing regulations. I am not guaranteed any benefits that most employees take for granted such as; health insurance, paid sick days, paid vacations, personal days, workman's compensation, unemployment insurance, retirement/pension plan or bonuses. My contractual policies reflect this.

At Childs Play Fun and Learning Center our goal is to provide your children with the best care possible. We have some strong beliefs on children and how they learn and grow.

We believe that children learn and grow in a loving, happy, warm environment, where they are accepted as individuals. They need plenty of time to play freely and explore their imaginations. We provide lots of open- ended activities to explore art and craft materials to create with, and special activities to spark curiosity. This is done during a scheduled day, which provides a child with the security of knowing what will happen next.
