Teaching, Learning, Caring is a licensed family child care home with a center type of set up complete with an Infant Safety Play Zone. Family childcare allows more flexibility to serve each child's needs and interests. We follow and focus on the child's interest as well as having structured and planned experiences to learn from. This all takes place in a single family home with a fenced. Similar to what naturally takes place in a family; with a variety of age groups; one can learn important life skills and develop compassion and other life skills from each other as well.
