About Us image
Have you ever wondered what life would have been like if you had fully understood and embraced who you were early on?

Our goal and soul purpose at Berkys Day Care is to help your child discover who they are while embracing the beauty and grace of their uniqueness. Throughout their time with us they will discover the world around them and the wonder within themselves. They will develop life-long friendships that will evolve and flourish throughout time as part of the beauty of this life. Your child will begin to encounter their interests, passions, and embrace a world of learning and growing. They will also face some of their challenges. Not to worry, we will be here to guide them each step of the way by teaching them some encouraging techniques that will get them through their challenges now and thereafter.

At Berkys Day Care, we believe that if we encourage teamwork, we are in fact developing the greatest leaders of the future. By encouraging our students to work together and solve a math problem during Circle Time or build a Barn in groups of four at our Blocks Center – we are in fact teaching them that if they can work well with others, they can solve or create anything. This lesson will be essential in the future when they are being called to lead, solve, and create solutions. Our lessons and activities are also created to challenge them and to overcome any hurdles that are usually more mental than anything else. Once they overcome these challenges, they will walk away from the lesson feeling more secure and confident in their individual abilities.

We believe that if we pour our love, respect, and positive energy into every single child that we have the privilege to work with, they will be a part of a positive changing world that is growing and evolving right before our eyes. They will learn that love is the ultimate truth and respect belongs to everyone. They will feel noticed and celebrated, and that is how they will feel free to grow into the wonderful individuals that they are meant to be.

We Value All Children

Our safe, nurturing learning environment is filled with unconditional love and acceptance. We strive to develop a family feeling within each class. Our school is a place where children desire to be and will never forget, a place that will positively influence them for years to come.

We Value the Whole Child's Growth and Development

Each child is a special person with unique gifts and talents. Through a holistic approach to child development, we set high expectations and goals for each child by stimulating and encouraging physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development.

We Value a Safe, Stimulating and Nurturing Environment

Our children are given the opportunity to create, solve problems and develop deeper thinking skills in an environment designed to engage without over-stimulation. We work closely with the children to develop rich learning spaces that balance play and structure in a format that develops creativity and self-awareness within each child.

We Value Respectful Communication

Communication is critical and comes in many forms. We teach the children how to communicate respectfully in order to get their needs met; make lasting friendships; and solve problems by leading through example. We seek to establish a collaborative relation between parents and teachers, sharing information and ideas to create a supportive partnership for each child.

Berkys Day Care is a fun, friendly, and safe place for children to learn and grow. Our nurturing staff is dedicated to providing quality care that meets each child's individual needs. From creative activities and exercise to structured playtime, we offer an environment that enables all children to succeed. Students will explore topics such as sharing, conflict resolution, friendship, kindness, safety, and diversity. Come and join us for a safe and stimulating learning experience!
