What's the difference between a child development center and daycare?

Both offer safe care for your child, foster play, and encourage socializing. Tomorrow’s Hope is an educational environment that prepares your child for success in school. In our classrooms, your child will spend their time learning and exploring by engaging in hands-on activities that stimulate their minds.


What are the benefits of a child development center?

At Tomorrow’s Hope, we believe in the power of education to set children up for success. We believe that by enriching the whole child, the center can help your child succeed in school, make friends, and become more confident.

What are the qualifications of your staff?

Lead Teachers need to have at least an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education and be at least 18 years old. Assistant Teachers need to have relevant experience in early childhood development, be at least 16 years old, and be under direct supervision of a Lead Teacher. All staff must pass a TB test and criminal background check.

What should I look for in a center that cares for my child?

Choosing a child development center for your child is a very important decision. As you explore options, you should assess the educational curriculum, the safety procedures, the staff’s experience and training, the reputation in the community, licenses the facility holds, and other factors. The best way to assess whether the provider is a good fit for your family is to visit in-person.

How do I know that Tomorrow's Hope is safe?

Tomorrow’s Hope has numerous procedures and policies in place to keep children safe. We are licensed by Early Achievers to provide safe care. Our staff is trained in CPR and first aid, emergency procedures, sanitation practices, and more.


Will my child be disciplined?

To ensure Tomorrow’s Hope remains a safe and welcoming environment, our staff follows outlined disciplinary procedures. Spanking, hitting, or violence of any kind will never be used as a disciplinary measure. Should behavioral issues arise, the staff will use warnings and redirection techniques to address the behavior and will work with parents/guardians along the way.

What should I pack for my child?

For the most part, parents/guardians do not need to pack food or toys for their child. Tomorrow's Hope provides everything your child needs to have a fun and educational day. Parents/guardians should provide any medications prescribed to their child, weather-appropriate clothing for outdoor play, and diapers if your child is not toilet trained.
