Childcare When You Need It!!

An Appealing Place to Learn 

We set an appealing tone in our daycare. We decorate our rooms in a colorful, exciting way that kids love. We want the children who stay with us to feel welcome and at ease. Our caregivers and teachers know that making our childcare facility visually appealing helps to give kids a memorable experience during their time with us. 

A Safe, Clean Environment 

Safety is top-priority at CJ’s Playpen. Because we have children of many ages staying with us, we childproof our facility in an effort to prevent accidents. Also, we keep our facility clean in order to cut down on the bacteria and germs that cause illness. We thoroughly clean our bathrooms, classrooms, snack area and all other areas of our facility. Our staff members are vigilant about cleaning up messes right away to prevent accidents and bacteria growth. 

Outdoor Time 

During the warm weather months, kids need even more fresh air and exercise. We give your kids outdoor time to play and socialize with one another. Kids can explore and have fun in a safe area. 

Open Communication with Parents 

We understand the importance of keeping the lines of communication open with parents. Maybe your child has a prescription he or she needs to take during the day. Or, maybe your child is hesitant about starting preschool and you want to know how he or she is doing on the first day. We understand the importance of communicating with parents on a regular basis to ensure that all of your child’s needs are being met. You can call us during the day, on the weekend or in the evening with questions or concerns. We are glad to talk with our parents. 



When you sign-up for childcare at CJ’s Playpen, we make sure to get all of the pertinent information about your child. This includes who is allowed to pick up your child at the end of the day. We make sure that the person who is there to pick up your child is someone who is authorized to do so. 

We are happy to answer questions and explain more about our services at CJ’s Playpen. Consider taking a tour of our daycare to see for yourself all that we have to offer. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
