Out of the Box Child Care

Our Mission
 
The Out of the Box Childcare Center was established in 2010. It is a well-respected family service and early learning center located in the Chowan community. Our mission is to provide a safe learning environment for children to grow, develop, and learn. We partner with families to rear children that will be loving, happy, and eager to learn. We endeavor to provide an early learning educational experience that promotes each child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. Our highly qualified staff of early childhood educators is committed to providing a nurturing, first-class program that is developmentally based and age appropriate for all children. Our facility is a place designed to assist all children in blossoming into the responsible, considerate, and contributing members of society they are created to become.

Our Philosophy
 
Our belief is that as families entrust us with the most crucial years of their child’s life, we are compelled to take a very sincere and
conscious effort to invest in their future by providing first-class care to the community. It is through these first-class experiences that
we believe each child will thrive. With loving and caring staff that are sensitive to the needs of each child’s innate quest for knowledge,
we have created for them a nurturing, God filled atmosphere where they can learn. Our goal is to assist families in preparing their
children for a lifetime of fun, discovery, and exploration through hands-on activities to sculpture the individual child. We encourage a
parent-teacher approach where the needs of every child comes first in order to experience the benefits of excellent early childhood
education and school-age programs.
We Provide Care for:
  • Infants: Birth to 12 months
  • Toddlers: 13 to 30 months
  • Twos: 31 months to 4 year olds.
  • Before and After School: Ages 5 to 12
Time of Operation
 
Our normal operating hours are Monday through Friday 6:00 a.m. through 8:00 p.m. At present, our operating hours are Monday
through Friday from 6:00 a.m. through 6:00 p.m. until further notice. For future references, we will be providing extended care for
children whose parents may work on the second shift. These dates will be made available at a later time.
Enrollment Procedures are as follows
 
Parents may secure child care applications from the center during regular office hours which are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
All applications are expected to be on file at the office at least one week prior to the child’s first day of attendance.
Parents are expected to submit a current medical examination report and a current immunization report on their child no later
than the first day of enrollment. If for some unknown reason this is not possible, parents will have until day 30 to have this
 information placed in the child’s files.
Parents and potential students are encouraged to visit the center prior to their child’s enrollment. This will give the child an
opportunity to meet the staff and other children before their first full day of attendance. All students are encouraged to attend
the center at least one half day for orientation purposes prior to the first day of class. A time allotment of 3 to 4 hours should be
expected.
Parents are required to have an enrollment conference with the Director prior to the child’s first day of enrollment.
During the enrollment conference, parents are encouraged to share information about their child, voice their expectations of the
program and to ask questions.
It is the responsibility of the parent to notify the center of any change of address, telephone numbers
(home, work, or cell), employment, emergency contact information, and medical information.
At the time of enrollment there will be a $25 non-refundable registration fee for each child. This fee will be due annually.
