About Us

Learn & Explore

At Elizabeth's Day Home, we are dedicated to creating a nurturing, stimulating and welcoming environment for all children. We allow the children to learn and explore new things while always keeping the child’s best interest in mind. This allows hands-on, experiential learning and develops a sense of curiosity in the early stages of childhood. To find out more about us, keep reading or feel free to get in touch.

 

Features

What We Offer

Since our founding, we’ve focused on supporting kids during all transitions throughout childhood. It is important to ensure that your child is in a safe nurturing environment. This is why we customize our day home to accommodate for the unique needs of each child.


We want to allow parents to be flexible with their scheduleing.

This is why we allow all parents to choose which days are best with no minimum requirement. 

We maintain a 6:1 child/teacher ratio and ensure that all children receive attention from the caregiver.


Child health is increadably important to us. This is why our Day Home is a smoke free environment. 


We consider nutrition incredibly important. We provide healthy breakfast and lunch meals as well as an afternoon snack. We are also able to accommodate for food allergies.

Most importantly, we welcome everyone and take care of children as if they were our own.
