Dear Parent:
Thanks for visiting the Cindy's Group Daycare website!

I am happy that you are considering my daycare as a choice for your child's childcare needs.  I hope that you will find the information in this website helpful to assist you in your search for childcare.  Please view our entire site and contact us to further discuss your childcare needs and arrange a day and time for a visit to our daycare. 

Cindy's Group Day Care is dedicated to providing exceptional high-quality childcare to every child.  Our focus is to nurture the whole child to ensure that their developmental needs are met.  I am confident that you will be happy entrusting us with your child or children!

My licensed daycare has operated for more than 22 years as a home daycare.  My staff and I create and maintain a close bonding with our children and families.  We are continuously striving to provide high-quality care and a nurturing atmosphere that your child or children deserve while allowing you to have comfort when away from your child.
I offer care that focuses on each child.  As a family childcare provider, my goal is to have an environment that creates a strong foundation for children to learn how to relate socially and advance academically.  It is my goal and that of my staff to provide a learning environment that stimulates the child’s physical, intellectual, social and emotional growth at their own pace.   In addition, we offer an educational and fun curriculum that is based on each child and their learning needs which aid us in preparing them for kindergarten or elementary education. 
We provide a full range of activities including free play, outside play, story time, dramatic play, block play, creative arts, crafts, music, field trips, theme days, holiday parties, family fun days and much more.  We also provide the children with breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner.  Our meals are nutritious and home cooked that include meat, starch, vegetable, fruit and milk.  
As your partner in caring for your child, my interaction with you, the parent, is as important as my interaction with your child.  I encourage parent involvement in my child care setting and my doors are always open to you at any time during operating hours.
I am CPR & First Aid certified and have obtained both my Associates Degree and Teaching Certificate from South Suburban College and am pursuing my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education at Governors State University.  I am a member of various childcare organization focus groups including the Illinois Association for the Education of Young Children (ILAEYC), National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC),  the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC) and HighScope.  I have also earned a Level 1-4 Early Childhood Education Certification and am pursuing my Family Child Care Certification(FCC) and accreditation with the National Association for Family Child Care Accreditation (NAFCC). I also attend conferences, workshops and trainings that focus on Early Childhood Education to keep abreast of new childcare developments. 

My staff has background clearance with DCFS in addition to having CPR & First Aid certification.  They have received their Early Childhood Education Certification level I and my Childcare Substitute has earned her Child Development Association(CDA).  They also attend conferences, workshops and trainings that focus on Early Childhood Education to stay abreast of new childcare developments.
Cindy’s Group Daycare has the honor of being awarded the Illinois ExceleRate Silver Circle of Care, the Illinois Quality Rating System Star Level 2 and the Best of Riverdale Childcare Award in the Education.
