How Old Is Your Child?
Teachers Facilitating Learning
Your child’s teachers have been selected not only because of their knowledge and experience, but also because their personal educational philosophy and teaching style is compatible with our approach. Teachers act as facilitators of learning, and respect the idea that each child participates in the process of learning in their own unique way.
Safe And Secure
Keeping your child safe is our number one priority. Teachers are first-aid and CPR certified. Children and teachers hold frequent fire and emergency drills. Programs have individualized plans to mitigate or prevent safety concerns and prepare for any emergency. Cleaning and sanitizing occurs throughout the day.
Healthy Snacks And Catered Meals
You don’t have to worry about packing a lunch and your child enjoys fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and more. Nutritious foods that contribute to the wellness, healthy growth, and development of your child at no extra cost to you. We work with you to instill healthy habits in children to serve as a foundation for healthy choices in life.
We keep families connected by sharing daily activities, photos, and more with the Procare Parent Engagement app. Communicate with your child’s center in real time and stay in the loop on upcoming activities.
Our dedication to high quality ensures your child receives the best education and care. We voluntarily choose to meet higher standards as required by our accrediting agency. National accreditation gives you the peace-of-mind knowing that teachers are creating engaging learning experiences for your child.

Our management team is available to support you. This team, including the Dr. Day Care Founder, CEOO, and VP, are on site to support your child’s teachers and administration.
What Parents & Teachers Have To Say
The Only Place I Trust
"Returning to work after having my son was a transition harder than no other I have experienced. The staff at Dr. Day Care-Cumberland went above and beyond to make that transition as stress-free as possible. Knowing my son is in quality care by caring individuals puts my mind at ease. Although leaving him is never easy, leaving him in Dr. Day Care is the only place I trust!"
"It's really fun seeing the kids grow up and all the smiles on their faces as we teach them new concepts"
Friendly and Professional Staff
"Location and price are perfect for us. Located on my way to work and price was way better than most day cares. Providing free meals & snacks is also a plus. Curriculum is great & staff are both friendly & professional."
"I would refer them to anyone"
"They really value education and giving every child the opportunity to succeed"
