About The Garden of Children…

About The Garden of Children

The Garden of Children has offered child day care to the Newport News area since 1974. Our dedicated staff is certified, insured, warm and caring. We believe that the pre-school experience prepares children academically, emotionally, and socially for elementary school. Additionally, we believe play is a vital element in a child’s learning experience. It is a medium for self-expression and an excellent time to develop their individual thinking processes. We participate with Smart Beginnings Virginia Star Quality Initiative and have acquired a “Star” rating.  Children in high quality child care settings are more successful in school and life, so choosing a preschool or child care program, is one of the most important decisions parents and families make. We excel in the care of toddlers and preschoolers and will take care of your little ones!

Our Commitment

  • To acknowledge and support our families as a child’s first
    and most important teacher

  • To setting the standard of excellence in early childhood
    care and education
  • To listen and respond to our families concerns or questions
  • To be committed to you and your child in all of their
    developmental needs

Our Mission

The Garden of Children’s mission is to partner with Virginia families in providing excellence in quality child care and education. We maximize the positive aspects of all children through creating an environment where differences are recognized, understood, appreciated and where all children learn, grow and play every day so that they are given an opportunity to develop to their fullest potential.

Our Philosophy
To a working parent or guardian, a child care facility is more than just a babysitter. It is a part of the input to the child’s personality development, early education, and social interactions that can shape his/her future. A child takes in more information between the ages of one to six than they do the remainder of their life. We know these formative years are critical to the development of your child’s creative talent, positive self-esteem, and enthusiasm for learning. The Garden of Children provides a safe nurturing environment for your child to grow and develop character using the basic ingredient of the home – love. That is why we believe that the giving and receiving of love must be a basic function in our center.

The children will encounter a variety of innovative activities to help them grow socially, mentally, verbally, and physically. The day’s work includes a balance of active and passive activities, as well as, teacher-directed and child chosen tasks.
