Caring for Children of All Ages
Continuity of Care
Children learn best when they feel loved. By staying with their teacher for an extended amount of time, children can build trust with someone who truly knows and understands them. Care-A-Lot fosters a sense of belonging for all children and families through empathy, acceptance and relationships that are built over time.
Care-A-Lot Classrooms are thoughtfully designed to promote curiosity, safety, and opportunities to learn and explore for children ages 6 weeks through 11 years. Classrooms are sensory friendly and families may enter the building with individualized codes. Each facility boasts a unique, fenced play yard that contributes to its individual personality.

What if my child is not toilet trained?
We understand that every child develops at their own pace. We encourage children to use the toilet when they are ready. Research shows that children who are allowed to learn to use the bathroom at their own pace is the best way for success. We celebrate each milestone, ranging from entering the bathroom to flushing the toilet.
What is your behavioral philosophy?
Our philosophy focuses on love, kindness and empathy. We do not participate in time-out, or use behavior charts/reward systems. We teach the children that the reward comes from within when they make a choice they can feel proud of. Each program utilizes an adapted version of Zones of Regulation (linked) to help assist children with a greater understanding of their emotions, their peers reactions, and the signals their body is sending them. Our teachers participate in a quiet gentle approach in assisting children with conflicts. “When their storm, meets our calm, co-regulation occurs”
