Parent’s Helper Daycare is a Reggio-inspired, nature-based, child-led, learning environment which view children as competent, having rights and able to construct their own learning through (One Hundred Languages) ways of self-expression.  We stimulate children’s interest with the help of our curriculum, as they set the stage for learning objectives that impact their lives. Our learning approaches address specific goals and objectives in the cognitive, speech, and language, social-emotional, and gross and fine motor domains of child development.
