"Polliwogs is a nice place for babies."
Recently a friend of mine was walking through our center. Her job takes her into many centers, and has for many years. As she looked around she said, "This is a nice place for babies. I generally don't think centers are nice places for babies, but this one is."
Who We Are
Polliwogs began as an expansion of the already successful Terri Hall's Child Care. Together we have been caring for Peoria's kids for more than ten years.
We have many unique qualities and are a DCFS licensed facility. In our most recent inspection, by the way, we earned another 100%!
Polliwogs is based on the belief that children are to be cherished as well as taught. Snuggling is as important as learning. Children in our care are introduced to fun activities that emphasize social relationships and individual exploration. As a result, we have a very low turn-over rate and a high percentage of our business is from referrals.
We have a dedicated ambient newborn room! Polliwogs might be the only daycare in Illinois to offer this innovative service to our newest citizens. We recognize that newborns are very different from older babies. They still don't know day from night, and they are the most vulnerable they will ever be. With these factors in mind we built them a special room where they can get ample sleep to grow properly, and get special attention away from the hazards of the rollers, crawlers, and walkers.
We watch children from 6 weeks to 5 years old.
While unstructured play is essential for learning, minds need to be challenged in order to thrive.
Here at Polliwogs we are very proud of our ability to stimulate children of EVERY age.
We start with our infants. They get lots of love and attention with only 4 per room. We try to ensure that each child is getting what they need physically and emotionally each and every day. When age appropriate, usually around one, we bridge to some traditional learning through fun, changing themes on a two week rotation. We continue to build on their curriculum through full-blown pre-K.
We are very excited about this innovative style and hope you are too! For more information, please stop by or call us - there's just so much to share!
Our facility is top of the line, but cozy. Compared to the bigger centers we save on taxes, we save on utilities, and we choose to pass along our savings to you. Make no mistake, we spend money where it serves you and your child best, like on our state of the art surveillance and security system, but we also know what it's like to work hard for your money and want to offer you the best deal we can!
Polliwogs Child Care center is licensed for only 46 children. This means more face time, more lap time, more smiles for your child.
Don't delay or you could miss out on the best child care around!
We welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best child care in the north Peoria/Dunlap area.
