We provide children with an inspiring, warm, home-like environment with a focus on learning. We accomplish this by:
- Providing activities that encourage cognitive, emotional and physical development
- Fostering advancement of the social skills needed to interact with others
- Coordinating with parents to further their child’s progress
We believe that children should develop at their own pace. Our goal is to provide a secure environment where children feel relaxed and able to express themselves. We encourage parents to visit the center frequently and build relationships with staff so they receive frequent feedback on how their child is progressing.
We strive to hire staff members that have experience in childhood education and childcare. We provide our teachers with continuing education through trainings and conferences to ensure they stay current on childcare methods and trends.
A Brief History
Kids Heaven Childcare was established in summer 2004 in response to student families’ unmet need for affordable summer programs for their children. Kids Heaven received a childcare license from the state of Virginia and secured facility space on Southpark Drive. In January 2005, the center received its licensure for full-time services for a capacity of 17 children. In 2008, the center moved to a larger space off South Main Street and became licensed for 55 children.
Virginia Star Quality Initiative
The Virginia Star Quality Initiative (VSQI) was created to help parents and caregivers find high-quality childcare programs. Each preschool or childcare program is given a star rating, from one to five stars. In 2013, our center achieved a 3-Star rating. We will continue striving to reach the best to provide quality childcare services to the community.
