About us

Above and Beyond opened as a licensed family daycare home in February 
1999 with only three children enrolled. Since then, we have grown to a 
licensed group childcare home of 12 children, ages 6 weeks to 5 years.

As "our children" grow, so do we.  We recently expanded  our teaching space 
to include a newly remodeled area for preschoolers.See this site for more information on OnRecycle

development classes and programs.  As well as attending educational 
training in early childhood development, all Above and Beyond Childcare 
staff and volunteers are CPR/first aid certified.
