Caring Hearts Academy

Open Arms. Open Hearts. Open Minds.

Our Mission

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing’s going to get better. It’s not.” ~ Dr. Seuss

Our mission is to provide childcare that meets the needs of both the child and family in a safe, spiritual educational environment, while “building” confident, caring learners who are ready and eager to embrace their educational journey.  We care “a whole awful lot” and strive to make our world brighter, one hug at a time.

Our Philosophy

“A person’s a person, no matter how small” ~ Dr. Seuss

At Caring Hearts Academy we consider each child a gift from God with unique differences ranging in temperament to rate of development and that each individual is deserving of our love and respect.  Our focus is on the developmental needs of the individual child, while providing quality, reliable, affordable childcare, and building meaningful, healthy relationships. We support our children as they develop physically, cognitively, socially, emotionally and spiritually according to their individual learning style.

Our Goals

• To provide affordable, convenient, dependable childcare services in an educationally based environment.

• To create an educational childcare setting for spiritual, social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.

• To provide a nurturing environment, fostering the development of healthy relationships not only with other individuals, but with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

• To provide open-ended learning experiences and discovery for our children.


These are just excerpts of our mission, philosophy, and goals.
