Appleton Child Care
Amy & Kids Co. is a state licensed family child care center serving Appleton WI, and the surrounding area. We offer a nurturing, educational program for infants to school aged children. Our goal is to provide high quality child care by creating a safe, healthy, and caring environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of your child, as well responding to the needs of your family. We partner with parents; working together to help our children grow happy, healthy, and strong, and building a relationship of mutual trust and respect.
Our Appleton Child Care Philosophy
We believe that each child is a unique and special individual who has the right to safe, stimulating, and educational child care regardless of race, gender, color, religion, ability, economic background, national origin, or ancestry. We know how hard it is to leave your child in the care of another, but please rest assured that your child will be cherished and kept safe while you are away.
Appleton Child Care Program
Children of all ages will thrive in our play-based program! From infancy through the "tween" years we celebrate children's individuality, nurture their healthy development, and prepare them for success in life.
- Infants and toddlers develop secure attachments and trust through individualized care, predictable routines, and sensitive caregiving.
- Preschoolers enjoy lots of time for exploration and hands-on activities, as well as plenty of time to learn at their own pace.
- School age children (Kindergarten and up) receive opportunities to develop independence, and a wide variety of age-appropriate activities to choose from.
Our Appleton Child Care Program is State Licensed
In Wisconsin, child care providers can choose to be state licensed, county certified, or unregulated. We choose to be state licensed because we believe licensing promotes the highest quality child care by requiring minimum standards for the care and protection of children. At least twice yearly a state licensing specialist pays a surprise visit to evaluate our program with regard to health and safety, adult-child ratio, caregiver training, equipment, nutrition, behavior and guidance procedures, and other hallmarks of quality child care. The results of these visits are always available to the public. In addition, families enrolled in our licensed facility can take advantage of federal programs like the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), and Wisconsin Shares child care assistance program.
Appleton Child Care can be Green
Our commitment to children and families includes a commitment to the earth and to all the people who live on the earth; around the corner or around the globe. We realize that Appleton may not be as "green" as other communities in our country, but we're proud of the efforts our Appleton child care program makes to be "green." After all, every little bit helps!
