As a first time parent, I was nervous about leaving my infant (started at about 7mos) with anyone other than my mom! Childcare Network exceded my expectations, (and my husbands!) taking my son part time so I could begin to go back to work. The teachers helped to socialize him with other qualified adults so he is not afraid for me to leave. I know he is being taken care of, and that puts my mind at ease! I am very pleased with the care given to my son in the infant room, and would recomend them to anyone who needs part or full time child care

Welcome to our preschool in Morehead City NC! My name is
Deborah Daugherty, the school director. I have been apart of 
the Childcare Network family for 8 years and working in the child care field for over 20 years. I hold my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and truly love what I do here.

The staff and I take great pride in being more than a daycare. 
Our school develops young minds through curriculum and with outdoor learning experiences. We take our classroom activities outside and let the children explore. Through our gardens, they plant different vegetables and flowers. They also get to paint, have a class picnic while enjoying the ocean breeze and a good book.
We keep these little minds working hard and learning through 
all their daily activities by providing them with a healthy USDA 
approved breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. 

Our beautiful location has two buildings and both of them hold 
a 5 Star status with the state of NC. Stop by and visit with us. We would love to give you a tour of our facility and share more information about all of the wonderful things happening at Childcare Network.
See you soon!
