The Importance of Educational Childcare

Today, many households are two-income homes, with both parents working to provide the best for their family. This means finding a childcare situation for your children is an important decision you have to make.

There are a variety of childcare providers to choose from in Gainesville, VA and the surrounding areas. However, at Haymarket Children’s Academy, we understand the importance of educational childcare. We believe each day presents educational opportunities for children no matter their age.

Our educational programs provide many benefits for any child as they help them to learn and grow. The children entrusted to our care are also given opportunities to develop crucial social skills by working with other kids their own age.
