When Care-A-Lot plans to reopen

Care-A-Lot Virtual Teacher Offering

In these difficult times, we realize parents may appreciate their children getting the chance to talk to the teachers they know and love from Care-A-Lot. In order to do our best to continue giving a great experience to the kids who can no longer attend day care during this lockdown period, we've made an effort to set up a video chat where some of our teachers can continue to interact with the students. If you would like to be included in this program, free of cost, please contact us over E-Mail!  cal@carealot4kids.com

We miss you!

Since Care-A-Lot has been closed, we've put up signs in our windows to explain the situation to parents and children passing by, as shown below.

We were delighted to see some of our students who were walking by respond by sending us the following image

...and we wanted to say, we miss you too! We wish all the families we've been working to serve these past 34 years the best during these difficult times. We miss all of our current students, and hope to see you all when we are allowed to reopen!
