Reasons to Consider In-Home Family Child Care

Ratios are Small

As a state licensed facility, Creative Minds Child Care operates according to the regulations of the state of Virginia.

Turnover is Low

Kids and providers come and go at commercial day care settings. At Creative Minds, the families usually stay from birth until they are ready for kindergarten. There is less illness because there are fewer people in and out, which means fewer germs are spread to your child.

Your child will have the SAME teacher from the toddler years to entering kindergarten.

Home Like Environment

Many children feel overwhelmed when attending a commercial facility. At Creative Minds, your child will receive the same learning experience in a smaller close nit setting. You and your child are treated as part of a family in a home-based preschool rather than being just another number in a large center.
