About Us

At Carol Matheys Center for Children and Families we believe that all children are unique with individual development patterns. Each child will bring his or her own style, personality and background to our programs. All children will be given the freedom to express themselves and are encouraged to be independent.

We have been educating young learners for over 43 years and are proud to supply the community with high quality, affordable child care, early childhood education and family support.

We are a non-profit organization which prides itself in providing emergency tuition assistance and field trip scholarships for families in need.


"Our son has been in daycare with the same group since he was 3 months old and while he loves the familiarity of daycare we wanted to introduce him to structure and routine and learning!  Before he starts Kindergarten.  We've been discovering that change is hard on him and this transition has been invaluable in preparing him for school.  The teachers are kind and smart and compassionate.  They truly care about helping him reach his full potential."

"Wonderful Place!  I went here as a child 20 years ago and loved it as a kid and now my son loves it!  Wonderful teachers ad friendly.  Great hours and flexibility.  Staff is very professional, nice people and caring!  Thank you!"

After interviewing a dozen home daycares we found Carol Matheys to be a great fit for our family.  They separate by age groups, so my two boys would each have their own class and group of friends.  We love the teachers and I never worry about my kids while they are there.  I would recommend Carol Matheys!"

"My children and I love Carol Matheys because it is quality care.  My children perk up each morning when they see their teachers and that means so much to me knowing they are comfortable and happy when they have them.  Carol Matheys has realistic expectations for children's behavior and is very friendly and patient.  We are so lucky to have them."
