About Our Team

We at Guardian Angel Day Care Center want to make your child’s experience a positive and happy one. We will encourage educational growth in a fun way through hands on activities your child will love. Through experience we find that this cultivates self-esteem and confidence as your child is prepared for kindergarten.

 

All staff has criminal background checks and are C.P.R. and First Aid certified. Teachers at the center have various degrees of education all related to Early Childhood as required by the state.  18 hours of yearly continuing education is also required and completed by all staff members.

 

Our teachers are dedicated to developing your child’s potential and are sensitive to your child’s individual needs. We work on developing their social, cognitive, and physical motor skills to best prepare them for their futures. We are here to act as a helping hand in raising your little angels.  Our main goal is to make sure that your children are always safe and happy. When you can’t be there for them trust their care in the hands of Guardian Angels.
