On Tuesday, December 20, Beach Babies Childcare will hold an open house and ribbon cutting at their new Milford location. The new childcare facility is located 6251 Radian Circle in Milford, just off of Marshall Street. A ribbon cutting will be held at 11 AM.
“We will be cutting the ribbon with the Milford Mayor, the Chamber of Commerce and Representative Bryan Shupe among others,” Sean Toner, Chief Operations Officer, said. “I also believe some of the staff at the Department of Education will be joining us as well that day. We would love to have as many people come out as possible to see this new facility.”
According to Toner, the new facility is the second or third largest childcare facility in Delaware and is the largest Beach Babies facility as well. The 15,000 square foot building is licensed for 214 children.
“Our official opening day will be January 3 since all Beach Babies locations are closed on Monday, January 2,” Toner said. “Because of the holidays and things like that during this time of year, we found it would be best to open on the first day of the new year.”
Beach Babies offers a curriculum with lesson plans based on requirements of DOE. Each child has a portfolio, even the infants as the childcare facility conducts assessments and tracks each child as they grow. This allows them to recognize any issues the child may have so that they can be addressed at an earlier age. The childcare center also works with the State of Delaware to provide services for low income families and offer transportation if the school district does not.
“We also offer a summer camp program for school-aged children that includes field trips to the library, the post office and other locations,” Toner said. “We also offer programs like swim, dance, soccer and other extra-curricular activities geared toward three and four year olds.”
Beach Babies opened in 1995 and has locations in Townsend, Lewes and Rehoboth as well. Toner explained that they are always looking for staff and that anyone interested in applying can do so on their website.
