All classrooms follow a structured weekly theme/curriculum that incorporates age appropriate and culturally aware activities that include letter and number recognition, fine and gross motor skills, art, music, books, dramatic play, and science. Our structured teacher created curriculum offers classroom experiences that develop self-control, cooperation and communication yet still allows for flexibility among each individual child's needs. The skills taught in each classroom build upon prior experiences to enable the child to meet age appropriate developmental milestones.

Our Kindergarten Readiness Program is designed to develop the necessary skills as well as builds on the development of social, emotional, and motor skills to ensure that each child that graduates from our program is ready for the challenges they will face in Kindergarten and beyond. Kindergarten Readiness skill specifically include alphabet recognition of upper and lower case letters, letter sounds, writing, and all the necessary pre-reading skills,. Number recognition, counting, writing, and basic math skills are also taught. The Kindergarten Readiness program stresses the importance of problem solving skills to help each child develop and master the necessary self-help skills necessary to be successful in life.

In all classrooms, activities teach and reinforce the ideas of respect, responsibility, and accountability amongst oneself, friends, parents, teachers, and property. These include both teacher lead structured and child lead unstructured activities that focus on intellectual thinking, individual and cooperative play; development of social, emotional, self-help, and problem solving skills; utilizing sensory, science, blocks, manipulatives, books, music and dramatic play activities.

Customer Testimonials

Thank you so much for all the help and understanding over the last 4 years (it went by so fast!). Corben could not have been in better hands, we never had to worry when he was there. Heidi and all of the teachers at Day By Day are amazing and have helped Corben to be the wonderful little boy he turned into. Thanks for everything!


So happy with our care at DBD! Suzanne and the girls in the "Sweet Pea" (baby) room have given me such peace leaving my baby while I go to work! They are attentive and really are helping her develop well! I get excited to bring her every day. I couldn't ask for more!
