I absolutely LOVE this daycare. The staff are wonderful!!!! My son has been here for about a year, before that I was a stay at home mom of 2 years, so the transition would've been hard on any child, and at first it was. However his teacher, in addition to the director, and what I take to be the assistant, helped him transition smoothly. Now if he misses more than a day he begs for his teacher. Words can not begin to describe just how much I love this daycare, very appreciative of them all, everyone!

Hello! We are Co-Directors Sherry Wheeler and Teri Forte and we welcome you to our school in Havelock, N. C. Our school has a natural learning environment where gardening takes place daily in the classroom and on the playground.

Childcare Network is more than a day care.  We focus on the social, emotional and physical development of every child in our care.  Our teachers encourage a nurturing learning environment for our children and their families based on year-round gardening.  Through structured curriculum and play, we grow little minds from infants and toddlers to preschool and school age. 

The children are really excited about the gardens on the playgrounds.  They have turned tires into beautiful colorful planters and the flowers are blooming more and more each day. They have also planted a variety of vegetables in the gardens.  So much fun and hands on learning experiences are happening every day at our school.

Our Young Achievers Club participants are very excited about Adventure Summer Camp.  We have planned trips to state parks, museums and many other educational sites in our county and surrounding area.  We also have exciting activities such as swimming, bowling, and magic shows.  Our campers will be planting and managing their own garden through the summer and will be able to share their produce in the community and at home. Summer is always a fun, exciting and educational time for our campers.

Kindergarten Prep Academy teachers continue to work hard to provide meaningful learning through structured activities for our four and five year olds.  Learning happens year-round in this classroom to prepare our children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall of the year.  The curriculum activities help children expand their thoughts and imaginations as well as prepare them academically, behaviorally, emotionally and socially for their new environment in kindergarten.  This is a fun time for all of us!

Give me a call or come by for a tour!  I know you’ll find that we provide excellent care and a well-balanced curriculum for daily learning at every age!  We look forward to meeting you and your family soon!
See you soon!
