Nestled in a quiet corner of the northeast Grand Rapids Fulton Heights neighborhood, Mayfair Christian Daycare’s facility helps to provide a supportive and engaging learning environment for all of our children, from infants to toddlers to preschoolers.
Located next to a church and separated from any direct street traffic, our Grand Rapids daycare facility is located less than a half-mile from the I-196 Fuller Exit and is easily accessible from all directions. All of our classrooms are locked and accessible only by teachers and parents with keys.
Our nurturing staff understands that the key to productive learningand growth revolves around a safe, organizedand well-planned environment. For over 20 years, our Grand Rapids Daycare Center has remained dedicated to offering welcoming and stimulating play rooms that promote your child’s natural curiosities and love of learning. All of our age-specific classrooms are designed to provide safe, clean, fun and secure surroundings that help your child to learn, explore and develop at their own pace.
Large, Modern Age Specific Playgrounds
One of our most popular attractions has been our large, modern playground, which is separated into two fenced-in sections — one for infants and toddlers and one for preschoolers. Each area is equipped with an assortment of age-appropriate toys, play sets and play areas (some shaded), along with a large variety of riding toys, tricycles and outdoor toys. Our playground is compliant with all state, federal and accreditation laws and mandates for safety and age-appropriateness. Each spring, our staff and several parents get together to re-mulch the entire playground area.
Our infant and toddler area offers several small play sets, a large sandbox and an area for our infants to lie on blankets and watch the toddlers play. Our preschool area boasts a large, multi-use wooden playset with aslide, climbing areas and monkey bars, a dome-shaped jungle gym, a large sandbox, a balance beam, a small rock-climber, a fire engine and several open play areas. In 2011 we added a covered shade area to our infant and toddler playground and added a partial shade cover to our preschool sandbox. In addition, in 2012 we cemented a large corner of the preschool playground to provide an area for riding tricycles that quickly became one of the most popular areas on the playground. Barring extreme heat or winter storms, we try to have at least one outdoor session every day.
All of our age-specific classrooms have been designed with the growth and safety of your child in mind. We are constantly upgrading each of our rooms to comply with new laws, policies and suggestions from our accreditation standards board, as well as any other changes that we feel will help make our facility more comfortable for your child. All toys, games and equipment are chosen specifically for age-appropriateness and safety along with supporting the philosophy and goals of our center.
We staff each classroom with caregivers and teachers specially chosen for their experience, education and proficiency within a specific age group. We also take health concerns andcleanliness very seriously and take significant precautions to prevent the accumulation and the spread of germs. The entire center is cleaned, sanitized and closely monitored by staff daily, and professional cleaners are brought in at specific times throughout the year to handle larger projects that require specialized care and expertise.
