A Typical Day at The Kids Corner
We provide child care Monday through Friday every week except for the days which we are closed, which would be most of your major holidays.
A daily schedule gives children the stability and security they need early on in life. That's why we strive to provide a stable framework that adds structure to our daily lives but also leaves plenty of room for spontaneous and additional activities.
