Cindy's Group Daycare was established in June 1996 and is owned and operated by Cindy McGhee-Junkins.  We are a licensed home childcare, State of Illinois and Village of Riverdale, for ages 6 weeks to 12 years of age and provide exceptional childcare for both full-time and part-time care in addition to before and after school care.  We have received a Quality Counts Star Level 2 certification that recognizes Cindy's Group Daycare's achievement above State minimum standards and an accomplishment we are proud to have received.  

Cindy's Group Daycare is based on the belief that our children and their parent's needs are of the utmost importance to the success of this daycare. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.
The children are afforded an excellent developmental and learning opportunity in a unique home childcare setting that has an entire floor dedicated to childcare.   The owner and staff are trained and all retain CPR and First Aid certifications, in addition to continuing education credits.  Parents may also volunteer and are welcomed at any time.
Cindy’s Group Day Care believes in diversity and welcomes families of all faiths, creeds and ethnic origins.  The program design fosters the belief that quality education involves constant interaction among the environment, the child, the teacher and the parent. Cindy's Group Daycare maintains an environment that creates a strong foundation for children to develop and learn how to relate socially and advance academically.  Our educational program is based on meeting the social developmental needs of each child and creating and environment that fosters cognitive as well as physical and emotional development.
