Mission Statement

Carnduff Community Daycare works with the families in Carnduff and surrounding communities to provide care and programming which foster the healthy development of children ages 3 months to 12 years.

Our Philosophy

We believe that 'play' is an important tool through which a child learns about the environment.

We strive to create an enriched environment, one which a child can grow emotionally, socially, cognitively, and physically.

We encourage the development and appreciation of individuality while learning to be a part of a group.

We stimulate the children's sense of responsibility and teach appropriate social behavior.

We encourage and respect the diverse nature of humanity.

We strive to provide an environment that is safe and healthy for all.
