Caring Hearts Academy
Caring Hearts Academy is a licensed childcare facility that offers child care and preschool services in South Hill, Virginia.
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: 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.
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.
“We thank you for your continued faith and trust in Caring Hearts Academy as we endeavor to increase positive outcomes in the lives of the children in our community through intentional interactions and family partnerships.”
