HELPER # 1:
Kare-Bears consists of somewhat of a "Mother/Daughter Team" so to speak My mother has been with me consistently throughout the last 16 years of my child care business. She is definitely an asset to Kare-Bears as she knows all the ins and outs and the makings of the business and what ii is today!
This is the best experience of all that one can have!!
Children call her "Nana" here as she treats the children like family/home
HELPER # 2:
Kare-Bears other helper has just very recently come aboard! This helper has much experience with infants and children of all ages. This new helper is able to bring order to the daycare and the children by interacting 100% with the children while, at the same time, can teach them basic social skills such as sharing, tidying up, and manners. My newest helper truly possesses all the necessary qualities as well as has caught on very fast and is 100% into the children!!
All of the providers are CPR/First Aid certified. Eco-friendly and clean child care (toys disinfected daily). Parent report cards are handed out weekly. Conveniently located off Maple St not far from 72nd St. Loyal client base with excellent references.
