Tea Time Playcare was founded by a busy mother who loves caring for and working with children! After the birth of her own daughter and years of feeling challenged with and hearing other parents' frustration over not being able to find reliable, affordable, part-time childcare, she decided to create a space which would allow her to help others like her in similar situations. Whether needing full-time care, help before or after school, or simply wanting a few hours during the day to run errands, she longed to create a better option than having to pay child care providers premium rates to work limited days or hours. In her efforts to provide a better solution, a flexible, affordable, and enriching play space was born in which small groups of children are not only given top quality hands-on care in a nurturing, home-like environment, but given fun creative opportunities to learn new skills and make new friends.
Tea Time Playcare is fully licensed by New York State's Office of Children and Family Services and is staffed with highly qualified and trained care-takers who have undergone extensive background checks and Pediatric/Adult CPR and First Aid certification. We have a very small caregiver: child ratio and pride ourselves on giving each child the individual and special attention they deserve.
