About Juniper Day Care and Child Development
Hi! Juniper Day Care and Child Development is more then just a place to leave your child for a few hours while you're busy at work. We understand that a child's development is facilitated primarily by their ability to interact with other children while receiving the love and support of a caregiver. At Juniper we are not afraid to give hugs. Our approach is a traditional one - we are interested in staying active, being engaged, and having fun in a relaxed and warm atmosphere.
Juniper Day Care will provide childcare during the following hours:
- Monday - Friday: 7:30am to 5pm
We will be open all year round with the exception of the following dates:
(please note, these dates are currently subject to change)
- Memorial Day, Monday, May 29, 2017
- Winter vacation, December 23rd - January 2nd 2017
