About Lion's Den

Our Purpose

Lion's Den Childcare Center cares for children through nurturing and understanding. Our staff works together with you by learning your needs, hopes and concerns in order to give your children the important things: love, support, understanding, comfort, loving discipline (to encourage healthy self-discipline), and excitement in their growing abilities, a healthy curiosity about their world, and a belief that they are valuable.

Helping each child grow--inside and out--at his or her own pace is one of our most important jobs. We strive always to make room for children's individual differences and show approval of their different ways of doing things.

Providing childcare means more than preparing healthy meals and having a clean, safe place to work and play. Our goal system at Lion's Den is to provide quality care that helps build good self-esteem, a feeling of self-worth and self-control which forms the foundation on which children will grow for years to come.

Our Goals & Objectives

  • To develop curriculum, activities and room arrangement that are developmentally age appropriate for each child enrolled.
  • To praise and encourage positive behavior
  • To plan for the need of movement, expression, noise-making, and natural exuberance
  • To entice the minds of our children, regardless of age, to learn, love, trust and obey
  • To involve parents in the growth and experiences of their children and to be responsive to parents' needs
  • To maintain professionalism with parents
