We have a modern, secure facility located on 5 wooded acres in west Newark. We utilize individual
classrooms designed with age-appropriate furniture, toys, storage areas, etc. Our outside play areas
consist of 4 separate playgrounds (Infants-onesies, Toddlers, Preschool, and School Age) with
age-appropriate climbers, swings and other play equipment.
Our tuition fees are based on a sliding fee schedule for the Early Care and Education programs.
School Age Care tuition fees vary based on the care hours and transportation needed for each child.
Payment for these programs is due weekly on the Monday of the week of care.
Summer camp enrollment is based on the weeks needed by the families during the summer. Tuition for
this program is due one full week in advance of each week of service. Limited scholarship assistance
is available for summer camp.
Purchase of Care enrollments are available in all three programs.
Meals: (included in tuition fees)
In our fully equipped on-site kitchen we prepare nutritious breakfasts, lunches and afternoon snacks for
our children. Our meals meet and often exceed the Federal Child and Adult Care
Food program standards.
We recognize that basic safety of a child is a fundamental concern for a parent. For that reason, we
maintain a locked facility, requiring all persons entering to show identification. Staff people are
screened, a background check is completed and references are checked. All parents complete the Permission
to Pick Up Form that lists persons authorized to pick up your child, and our security procedures only
allow those that you list. Our staff members also receive training in First Aid and CPR.
We provide transportation for school-age children attending Downes and West Park schools. Newark Charter
School, and Shue Middle schools pick up and drop off at Newark Day Nursery and Children’s Center.
