Beautiful Minds Child Care

At Beautiful Minds Child Care, we believe that it is important for children to develop socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively. We... believe that our roles as educators is to be models for learning and behavior, be great observers of children,and structure the environment for learning. We believe that parents and guardians deserve our respect and support. We also believe that parents and guardians are equal partners with teachers in their children's education. Above all else, we provide a loving, nurturing and safe environment for children to thrive in. Educational excellence, unwavering dedication and outstanding child care. Those are the values that Beautiful Minds Child Care stands for. Demand for daycare facilities continue to grow day by day, but all too often, institutions are only able to focus on either allowing the child to enjoy their childhood and develop naturally or forcing the child to focus only on mental development in order to achieve high test scores later on in life. Beautiful Minds Child Care is different. We promote physical activities in large open areas and a wide variety of educational games, but we also have a small library and various arts and crafts for your child to unleash his or her full creative and intellectual potential. Our goal is to promote every child's development individually using an appropriate mix of academic and recreational activities.
