About Us

Our primary goal is to ensure to create a dynamic, inviting, warm and nurturing atmosphere. As this is their first experience away from home and family, our objective is to create a stable and loving atmosphere in a clean and well maintained home environment. The many play activities and circle times offered in my class are geared to promote the children’s physical, emotional, social, language and intellectual development. The children will learn to play together in cooperative groups, become independent, relate confidently with adults and respect materials in their surroundings.

Our program encourages the children to be curious, creative and explore the world around them. Play based learning is fundamental in building self-esteem, confidence, independence, creativity and many other essential skills. At Chava’s Caring and Childminding, we are committed and excited to be partners in your child’s growth and development.

Indoor Playtime

We have a bright and clean playroom full of educational toys, books and activities to keep children engaged. We provide different play areas such as Blocks, Housekeeping, Light Table, Art and Reading Areas. During our indoor play time, the children are encouraged to rotate around the room where many open ended activities as well as a wide variety of materials are available for them to play with. Puzzles, playdough, art, drama, dress up and so much more!

Outdoor Play

Playing outdoors in a well-manicured lawn is part of the daily routine at Chava’s Caring and Childminding, weather permitting. A swing set and a wide range of bikes and toys are available to help the children develop social and gross motor skills.
