Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Tamara's Tiny Tots offers a loving, play-based learning environment. The first three years are essential for a childs brain to be stimulated for development. Our goal is to provide for your child's social, emotional, physical, and educational well being. Activities will encourage exploration, trial and error, creativity and imagination. Your child will enjoy singing, reading, outdoor play, planned activities, and free play. This influence will help your child to deal with emotions, interact with others, the way they'll think, and grow physically. We support home based child care. It allows for smaller groups in which each child's individual needs can be met.

Tamara's Tiny Tots is a state licensed Day Care. We offer a loving, theme-based child care program for infants to preschool aged children.

This handbook was developed to give you the information needed to make you and your child's experience the best possible. Please let us know if you have any questions.
