Our facilities are:

Safe! Children’s health and safety are our top priority.

Engaging! Children learn through play in a high-interest environment

Welcoming! Children and parents alike should always feel welcome

Happy! Our mission is to create a community of happy children, happy parents and happy teachers!

We understand that a well-designed environment supports children’s growth and development, affirms family’s expectations of high quality, and has a positive effect on teachers’ ability to implement our educational program. Young children are drawn to the spacious classrooms, huge outdoor playgrounds, high-quality furniture, and high-interest learning materials that combine to create the ultimate child-friendly environment. Parents appreciate our commitment to safety. Our secure facilities feature biometric entry systems, computerized check-in, and comprehensive video surveillance.

Health and Safety

To create the ideal environment for learning, children’s health and safety must be a top priority. We give careful attention to cleanliness, handwashing, nutrition and other health and safety routines. Care and education are equally important and interdependent facets of early childhood, Doodle Bugs! promises equal attention to both.

   
Biometric Access

Safety is our first priority so our doors are always locked. Authorized parents and faculty simply place a finger on the biometric reader to gain access to the center. All visitors must call the front desk and cannot enter the center without proper identification and authorization.

   
Automated External Defibrillator (AED)

Each center is equipped with an AED. In the unlikely event that a child may need an AED, you can rest assured that we are properly equipped and trained. While elementary schools are required to be equipped with these devices, child care centers are not… another Doodle Difference!

   
Fingersafe® Door Guards

All classroom doors are equipped with Fingersafe® door hinge guards that prevent fingers from being pinched. Fingersafe products have been described as “the best new safety product to hit America in 50 years.”

   
Air Quality

The quality of air inside a child care center is very important for obvious health reasons. Our commercial-duty HVAC system (heating and cooling) utilizes ultra-violet light in the ductwork to kill 99.9% of both airborne and surface bacteria, contaminants and viruses.

   

Classrooms

At Doodle Bugs!, each classroom is specially designed to support the age-appropriate learning, aligned with our Bravo! Curriculum. From the furniture, décor, and room arrangements to the structure of the daily routine, every element of our classrooms promotes a playful, hands-on learning experience.

Infant Classrooms

Parent partnerships begin in our Infant rooms, where our dedicated caregivers partner with you to create an individualized care plan for your child. Every aspect of your child’s care, from feeding schedules to sleep routines, is based on your preferences, in an effort to make our program your child’s home away from home.
