How Often Are The Toys Cleaned

Written by

We clean our toys twice a day, once during nap time, and again at the end of the day.  Infant toys are cleaned as needed.  We find this keeps down illness among the children and teachers.   Parents really appreciate this attention to details as less illness at home and school means less interruption at work and family time.

Do The Children Get One-on-One Time

Written by


Yes, we make sure our children have the time and attention necessary to make them feel secure and safe.  Because we have children ourselves, we understand and appreciate how important it is to give each child one-on-one attention they need and deserve.

How Much Outside Time Are the Children Allowed

Written by


Plenty, that’s the short answer.  We utilize our large yard, local parks and attractions to ensure our children are receive as much outdoor time a possible.  We encourage each child to run and play, we support and are members of the Let's Move campaign underway. We believe that healthy eating and plenty of activity is our legacy to our children.

How Does The Webcam Feature Work

Written by


We provide a secure link to the daycare.  Webcam access is for the convenience and comfort of our parents.  Once enrolled in Little Feet Child Care and Preschool, all families are given a unique login to the webcam.  We encourage our families to share the link and login with their extended families.  This allows for grandparents near and far to view their grandchildren any day of the week.  For security purposes, we periodically alternate the address of the webcam, this ensures the privacy of our families.
