1215 Sherman Ave, Hood River OR
My name is Laurie Carr and I have owned & operated Laurie's Little People Daycare in the heart of Hood River for over 13 years. I enjoy a fun working relationship with my adult daughter Molly who is my full time child care assistant. We are both State Certified caregivers with continuing education in early childhood development.
Our daycare is located in a large Victorian home on an oversized fenced property that includes a large outdoor playground.
We believe that children learn through play, creative arts, reading, dance and music while we also focus on teaching conflict resolution, manners, kindness, sharing and thoughtful communication.
Our nutritional program is second to none because we make our own sugar free baked goods and homemade bread fresh each morning to accompany the rest of our well balanced meals.
Above all we provide a safe, nurturing and loving environment for your children and for your peace of mind. Please join us by calling 503-758-5854 to enroll now.
