Our Philosophy


At Ballestrini's Child Care Centers, our goal is to provide each child with the highest level of quality care in a group setting. We believe that as children grow, they need a positive self-image, supportive role-models, and both structured and creative learning opportunities to effectively guide them through their development.

The teaching staff at Ballestrini's work to develop well-rounded children by presenting a positive first school experience. This is achieved with a developmentally appropriate curriculum based in the areas of math, reading-readiness, science, social studies, technology, creative arts, free-play and health. Our activities at Ballestrini's Child Care Centers encourage learning and growth in a manner that is appealing and exciting for children.

At Ballestrini's Child Care Centers we strive to be your child's "Home Away From Home."
