Burks' Family Childcare & Preschool
Burks' Family Childcare offers a safe, loving, nurturing environment where your child will get the attention and care that he or she needs. Our ratio of children to adults is always within state guidelines - and often even lower - to make certain each child receives top-quality care. I believe in positive reinforcement. The most important lesson a child can learn is how to enjoy life, knowledge, while important, does not rank high as a child how to learn and encouraging the growth of their imagination. Play is the most important tool through which children learn. We also, do a lot of preschool activities throughout the day.
We are state licensed as a home daycare facility and have met or exceeded all and safety guidelines.
