Chapel Hill Day Care Center is a full day early childhood education program for children 8 weeks old to 5 years. Accreditation through the National Association for the Education of Young Children assures parents that we follow best practices based on research about how children develop and learn, and the environment and interactions that best support learning.


Our Philosophy

Learn about the Chapel Hill Day Care Center's approach to early childhood education.


The staff at Chapel Hill Day Care Center honors each child as a unique individual who has the right to a happy childhood.

We see our Center as an extension of home and the uniqueness of each child's cultural heritage is recognized and respected. Our program strives to develop the child holistically while sparking curiosity and promoting mastery of the environment.

Our activities, which are based on the needs of individual children and build upon their previous experiences, include early literacy, mathematics, the arts, social studies, science, and technology. Our curriculum supports not only cognitive development, but also the physical, social, and emotional abilities of each child.

Most importantly, we endeavor to be a fun, safe and happy place for children to spend their early years. To ensure children of different socioeconomic statuses have access to high quality education, we partner with Chapel Hill Training Outreach Project to provide care to infants, toddlers and two-year-olds enrolled in Early Head Start, a federal program serving low-income and at-risk children.

Our goals influence the way the Center operates on a daily basis and help us to uphold our philosophy. We strive to:

  • Promote the development of a positive image for each child.
  • Foster caring relationships within the Center family. 
  • Support children where they are developmentally while encouraging individual growth.
  • Create an accepting environment that introduces children to the differences and similarities among people. 
  • Build confidence in children through the encouragement of self-help skills.
  • Teach cooperation and respect in a group setting. 
  • Encourage problem-solving and creative thinking. 
  • Foster excitement and curiosity about the world.
  • Promote constructive, prosocial expression of emotions.

Parent's Name
In our early days as new parents, our infant son Jack was given all the care and personalized attention he needed at Chapel Hill Day Care. He thrived with the continuity of care of having the same teachers for his first three years. We loved them so much we planned having our second baby to be with those teachers again! As each of our children have grown, the’ve enjoyed the evolution of classrooms, playgrounds and activities suited to their new stages of development. Our daughter Kate is now enjoying the independence and responsibility of the preschool classroom preparing for Kindergarten.

After 8 years with two children at Chapel Hill Day Care, I can honestly say I can’t imagine having been anywhere else. The teachers and staff truly feel like part of our family, and we are so grateful!
