about us

Huckleberry's Friends first opened its doors in 1987, after our founders' own relentless search for quality child care services went unfulfilled for far too long. It is from this desire to find the best possible care that our standards of providing it are based. To this day, Huckleberry's remains a family owned and operated child care facility. With a constant presence maintained daily by one or more founding member (with their own children also enrolled), you can rest assured that all children, are cared for in a manner that meets or exceeds such high expectations.

We believe that a healthy, loving, learning environment is essential to development in early childhood. Each child deserves a clean, safe, age-appropriate and educational environment in which to spend each day.

This environment should provide the opportunity for self-expression through music, art, dramatic play, games, indoor/outdoor play and creative experiences. The mental and emotional growth of each child should be nurtured at an individual pace.

Educational excellence, unwavering dedication, and outstanding child care are the values that Huckleberry's Friends Child Care Center stands for.

Demand for childcare facilities continue to grow day by day, but all too often, institutions are only able to focus on either allowing the child to enjoy their childhood and develop naturally or forcing the child to focus only on mental development in order to achieve high test scores later on in life. Huckleberry's Friends Child Care Center is different. We promote physical activities in large open areas, provide a wide variety of educational games, maintain a small library, and also provide various arts and crafts for your child to unleash his or her full creative and intellectual potential.

Our goal is to promote each child's development individually, using an appropriate mix of academic and recreational activities.
