Welcome to

Little Branch CHILD Care

Play-based Learning


We welcome any ages 0-13 years old. However, because the environment and curriculum are designed for infants and toddlers, most children will outgrow the program and move to a preschool around age 3. In the event that a child is not ready to move, he or she is welcome to remain in the program for as long as needed.

My Philosophy

We at Little Branch Child Care understands each child is unique, that recognizing children’s needs differ and each child needs to be considered individually is a primary focus for providing effective guidance and nurturing care. We believe each child should be honored for their unique way of being. We provide nurturing guidance in a family feel environment that respectfully encourages children to explore, discover and appreciate the wonders that our world has to offer. We believe in fostering healthy social-emotional development, rich in language, physical growth, cognitive learning, and self-help skills through play-based learning. Our goal is for your child’s experiences away from home to be positive and enjoyable.


What exactly is play-based learning?

Play-based learning is a type of early childhood education based on child-led and open-ended play. If you’re picturing preschoolers finger painting or ‘playing house’, you’re spot on.

Play itself is a voluntary, enjoyable activity with no purpose or end goal. Believe it or not, activities like this lay the foundation for a child to become a curious and excited learner later in life. Play-based learning helps children develop social skills, motivation to learn, and even language and numeracy skills. Taking initiative, focused attention, and curiosity about the world are all a part of play.

Children are naturally wired to do the very thing that will help them learn and grow.

 “The impulse to play comes from a natural desire to understand the world.”

“Play is the highest form of research.” – Albert Einstein

What Parents Think

At Little Branch Day Care, we genuinely felt that our child was cared for. They were engaged and attentive to our child. They consistently arranged activities and projects to keep the children positively occupied and thinking. There were times when our child was less than thrilled, we were picking her up because of the enjoyment she was having while at Little Branch. I Highly recommend this day care facility.
