Why Cuddles Academy Childcare stands out:

At Cuddles Academy Childcare we focus on the developmental goals of each child individually and work to form continuity between your home and our child care. This consistency helps children to know what to expect and helps them to feel safe in exploring and expressing themselves.

Additionally, as your child joins our child care family, we will encourage them to develop self-help skills. Every time a child is present in the moment and participating in a skill they are internalizing and making new connections to the world around them. These skills will promote independence, confidence, muscle growth, coordination, and lay the foundation for all your child will accomplish thoughout their school years.

Our Mission

Cuddles Academy Childcare is committed to providing the community with a happy and safe place where children can thrive and grow physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually.

With 20 years of childcare experience, parents can feel confident knowing their child is being cared for in a loving and supportive environ-ment that is committed to helping their child build self-help skills while focusing on social-emotional development.
