Chapel Hill Day Care Center is a five-star rated early childhood education program located in Chapel Hill, NC. We offer relationship-based care, which includes an evidence-based curriculum for infants through Pre-K children.
Why choose us?
We have several qualities that set us apart from other five-star centers.
Continuity of Care – We strive for children and teachers to stay together as a family-group from 6 weeks to 3 years. This enables your child and you to bond with his/her teacher during these early years.
Excellent Ratios – We offer the best ratio of teachers to infants in the area to ensure the highest quality of care, attention, and support for your baby. We recognize and support the importance of low ratios for all of our youngest children.
1:3 teacher to infant ratio
1:5 teacher to toddler ratio
1:6 teacher to twos ratio
Approaches to Learning:
Mixed-Age Groupings – We offer mixed-age groupings for our 3-5 year olds. This enables your child to learn from older children and to then serve as a role model for younger children later on, much like in a family.
Developmentally Appropriate Practices – In conjunction with and guided by a formal curriculum, our preparation for kindergarten occurs through hands-on, play-based experiences and activities, which are driven by children’s natural curiosity of and desire to understand and master the world around them. Our teachers are highly qualified and respect the language, culture, and values of individual families.
Child-Centered Philosophy – Our center strives to be an extension of home; we believe the best way to help a child develop socially, emotionally, cognitively, and physically is to recognize and celebrate the uniqueness of each child and to honor all children as individuals. We also believe in messy and fun exploration each and every day!
