Helpful Hints

Please note that young children often do find transition difficult, especially in a new environment. Please allow time to get your little one settled in at Cubs. We encourage you to bring one special item, like a blanket or stuffed animal, to help with the transition. The staff at Cubs is experienced, patient and understanding about separation problems, and everything possible will be done to make your child feel comfortable. Parents are always allowed at the child care and phone calls are welcome.

Mission Statement

Cubs Childcare is committed to providing an enriching, fun, safe, and developmentally appropriate environment for children ages 3 months to 4 years.

Philosophy: Cubs Childcare believes that children need to feel secure and wanted; we understand the importance of providing a warm, caring, comfortable, and safe environment.
All children at Cubs will be treated with gentleness, honesty, and respect and we will encourage them to treat others in this manner. 

Our program will foster curiosity, creativity, and self-esteem by providing an environment that allows for child-initiated and teacher-initiated activities; with play being the foundation component of these activities.
