Huckleberry Cheesecake  


Huckleberry Cheesecake is not just another "day care" center - it is the new generation of child development. What makes us different can make an important difference in your child's life and your own. Because our center is located at or near the work place, parents have a unique opportunity to be closely involved in their child's growth. Parents are encouraged to stop by to visit any time of day. You can join your child at lunch or relax with your child in our resource room.

Our program is structured to meet the physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs of your child, to educate and support every stage of development from infancy through five years. Our facility is designed to maximize a child's potential in an active, cheerful and responsive environment. It is designed for safety, hygiene and fun. Huckleberry Cheesecake's staff is highly educated and experienced in the field of early childhood development. Our low child -to- staff ratio ensures that a child gets the maximum individual attention he or she needs.

Philosophy
A child thrives in a loving, warm, accepting atmosphere, whether it be at home or at Huckleberry Cheesecake. We've created an environment where each child can thrive and grow, each as an individual. Huckleberry Cheesecake is committed to caring for children in a nurturing atmosphere near the workplace. We strongly believe that parents are the foundation and center of their child's life. Our program has been created to give mothers and fathers the opportunity to pursue their own careers without having to compromise their standards as concerned parents. Therefore, we encourage them to share in their child's Huckleberry Cheesecake experience, the new generation of child development.

Staff
Our staff is carefully selected not just for their educational credentials, but for their warmth, sensitivity and respect for children. Before they are selected as staff members each teacher is required to present an activity from language development to art, illustrating their abilities. In addition, all staff must participate in a three month probationary period in order to closely evaluate their interactivities with children and parents. To insure that excellent care is provided for every child all staff is trained in first aid and CPR. In addition, all staff members participate in continuous in-service training programs and attend conferences and workshops on child development issues.
