    Children’s Cove Childcare

    Jump into the Cove! 

    Children's Cove provides activities for ages six weeks to ten years throughout the day. Our highly qualified staff with CPR and first aid certification takes part in regular training to ensure a safe, loving, nurturing and fun environment.

    Children's Cove is structured with areas for your child to relax with a book, climb the castle (if age-appropriate), participate in group games, develop artistic talents, have snack or allow infants to take a nap.
