We believe that quality care is a partnership. At TOTally Kids Child Care of St. Mark's, it is our mission to partner with parents/guardians to provide children with developmentally and age- appropriate activities and materials in a safe, loving, and kind environment. At TOTally Kids Child Care of St. Mark's, your child will have the opportunity to explore and grow, create and discover, and build relationships with other children and adults by learning positive and kind communication skills.
Our child care program is designed to include both planned and spontaneous activities. The children experience music, quiet time, story time, art language, and individual/group times. We provide regularly scheduled breakfast, lunch, snack, rest and indoor/outdoor (weather dependent) play times. We understand that routines in physical care giving help promote a child's good health and comfort; it also provides the child with the first steps in self-care. Therefore, physical care, such as bathroom breaks and handwashing, are conducted at scheduled times, and, of course, as the need arises throughout the day.
Our qualified care giving staff lovingly guides and encourages your child in every stage of his or her development. We want you to feel confident that your child is receiving the best possible care while away from you. One of the ways that we create that confidence and provide that level of care is by maintaining open communication between our staff and each family. Also, all staff and volunteers are required to pass a background check and takes the "Safe Guarding God's Children" training by Episcopal Diocesan rules before working with any child.
