Babes on the Square acknowledges that children under the age of 5 are a precious resource, and that most of their crucial learning happens in these early years. Babes on the Square provides an environment wherein children, from ages 6 weeks through five years, will have maximum opportunity to develop independence, self-confidence, respect for self and others, and a positive attitude toward the pleasures of intellectual activity and learning. Babes on the Square staff are an extension of your child's family and home.
Babes on the Square's mission is to provide the best developmentally appropriate curriculum based on the following domains: Language Development, Mathematics, Science, Creative Arts, Emotional and Social Skills Development, Physical Health and Approaches to Learning. We will provide the children enrolled in our center with the most competent and trained staff available in compliance with Office of Child Care Licensing guidelines. Babes on the Square will maintain the best program possible by being involved with local initiatives such as the Delaware Stars For Early Success and 5-2-1... Almost None programs. Every child deserves a high quality early learning experience.
Babes on the Square was designed for the children who will be spending much of their parent's work week with us. We understand that it isn’t always easy for small children to be away from their homes and the comforts that their families provide. Our staff is dedicated to the concept that each child be made to feel an important and vital part of our center.
Our staff believes that children benefit most from exposure to a variety of stimulating experiences and materials. We believe that all children, especially those under six years of age, require nurturing and age appropriate expectations. While it is a goal to ready your child to enter grade school, we recognize that pre-school aged children require a comforting atmosphere and a home-like approach to their daily activities.
Every child at Babes on the Square will be exposed to a variety of preschool programs taught by qualified and experienced teachers. Throughout the day your child will stay with their teacher and a group of their peers. This familiarity encourages bonds to form and create a sense of stability and assurance.
We recognize that these are your child's formative years. We recognize that your child will be learning from our staff and from one another just as if they were at home. We strongly believe that good manners, common courtesy, and consideration for others will serve a child well throughout the course of their life. We strive to practice those virtues at all times within our center. We will try to encourage your child toward compassion by being compassionate ourselves.
We hope that our center can suit your needs in finding the special care your children deserve. We look forward to helping you find the best fit for you and your family. Please call to set up a tour, we would be happy to show you around our facility and answer any questions you may have!
