Infant Room

During the first year of life, your baby’s brain is growing so fast. Stimulation helps engage them mentally and develop their senses. In the infant room we provide a day care solution that focuses on helping your child build their motor skills and reach their developmental milestones faster. At Circle of Friends, you have access to Schreiber’s nationally recognized services that will enrich your infant’s experience.

Toddler Room

The toddler daycare program is designed to be a positive first school experience. Teachers are creative and flexible, and they encourage discovery. Our program helps your children grow while learning through their individual interests. The children have opportunities to explore through play at their own pace while developing valuable social skills and peer relationships.

Pre-K Room

Preschool is an important time in a child’s development for social skills and awareness of others. Our child care pre-k program guides children to problem-solve, develop self-help skills and interact with peers. The children discover the world around them in a safe, nurturing and encouraging environment. They learn respect for themselves while preparing for kindergarten success.

Parent Testimonials

“I can tell how much Jack loves everybody here. When I take him out to say goodbye, everybody knows his name. Everybody says goodbye to him. He lights up and smiles. Knowing Christina Kalyan and having seen her work, I could say she would give Jack the kind of care he needed. You guys do a fantastic job with kids with disabilities. And you also look at the whole family unit, and I think that’s really important.”
