Cuddle Creek Childcare is a diverse, family owned business providing a nurturing environment for children ages 6 weeks and up. We understand the challenge of finding trusted care for your child while you are away; we also value the importance of a comfortable, home-like setting-where established routines are key and everyone learns through the human experience. We believe play is a child's work, we believe in respect for all and a child's right to be included, and we believe that all children can be successful members of society in some fashion. Our family is a myriad of diversity: inter-racial adoption, domestic partnership, special needs, rescue pets, etc. We feel strongly that our unique home-life is a true representation of the world around us, on a micro-level. In addition to the typical child care experiences such as learning to share, achieving developmental milestones, problem solving, teamwork, etc., at Cuddle Creek, your child will witness and practice tolerance, acceptance, kindness, compassion, personal responsibility, self-affirmation, and a host of other invaluable life-skills.
Cuddle Creek Child Care uses the Attachment Theory in our practices with all children. We do not use time-outs or punitive consequences at any time. Our staff have found that redirection and adult support is the most successful approach to encouraging appropriate behaviors in older infants, toddlers, and preschool aged children. In our Infant program, we strive to emulate the routines and schedule you have set as parents, to nurture, protect, and build a secure relationship with your child. With over 35+ combined years of experience, we have come to know that a safe, trusting relationship between caregiver and child must be the foundation to all learning.
Cuddle Creek Child Care provides 2 nutritious snacks daily, plus beverages (water, whole milk). Families are responsible to bring breakfast if applicable and lunch. Infant mealtimes will be discussed during the enrollment process. Families are asked to provide their own diapers only.
As parents ourselves, we know that not all work schedules are typical-so we are proud to offer alternative hours of operation upon request, including weekend care consideration. We are here not only for your child, but to help you make parenthood a successful, enjoyable experience. It takes a village!
Please call us to set up a visit today-we are always open to meeting new friends, and we hope you will decide to stay!
