"The teachers at Bates-Rich are absolutely amazing. Everyone takes the time to get to know my kids, and all the other kids in the center.

It's a wonderful feeling to drop them off in the morning and not have
to worry."

- Jill V.

"The teachers and staff really care about the kids and it shows. It is a wonderful combination of learning, fun, and friendships.Teachers, staff, and directors are well-educated on food allergies and provide a safe environment for my PN/TN allergic son. In the past we have had a nanny, in-home daycare and another center, and this place by far is the winner."

A WORD FROM OUR FAMILIES

A TRADITION OF QUALITY CARE

 

 FROM OUR FAMILY, TO YOURS

 

You can trust us with your child's safety and education. That always has been and always will be the priority at Bates-Rich. Over the 35 years we have been caring for children, we have become recognized as a quality child care center with a loving atmosphere where children can develop their emotional, physical and academic skills. 


At Bates-Rich, each child is exposed to a variety of experiences that will arouse their curiosity, challenge their abilities and encourage self-expression. We focus every day on teaching the children to be safe, respectful, and be kind.


Active involvement with materials offers children opportunities for learning, development of skills and a sense of mastery of their environment. Center staff set limits to ensure the physical safety and emotional security of each child. We are committed to providing a nurturing, enriching environment for your child every single day.
