Morrow Avenue Child Care

​Dr. D. W. Penner School houses the Morrow Avenue Day Care—a private day care that operates before-and-after-school programming and a half-day program for the school’s kindergarten students.

Our Philosophy

Each child is a unique individual with rights for love, respect and quality care in a safe, warm and nurturing environment. We believe in the whole child—physical, emotional, social and intellectual growth. Children are encouraged to develop self-confidence and a positive self-image through various activities. Children have the opportunity to learn to make choices and decisions, solve problems and become independent capable thinkers. Children are encouraged to share with others and respect themselves. Early Childhood Educators are trained and knowledgeable in child development, in addition to being warm, loving individuals. Parents play the most important role in their child’s life; they are welcomed and encouraged to become involved in their child’s daily activities.

  • We model, teach and promote life skills and healthy lifestyles.

  • We hire trained, professional, caring ECEs.

  • We promote diversity.

RT @meaghan_conrad: Days prior to the Critical Red shift in May, my Ss planted seeds in a tiny cup to activate our learning on plants/soils. I was amazed to get this pic from a student of her Zinnias now! Just like flowers, our kids will grow, adapt and flourish even in challenging situations 🌸🐼
