The management staff at Dr. Day Care are working closely with the  teachers and administration to ensure a smooth transition.  Teacher training on best practices, policies, and procedures provides families with peace of mind that their children will continue to receive exceptional care and education.  Tuition rates include a healthy breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack that follows Federal Food Program guidelines to provide nutritious meals.  Open from 7:00am to 5:30 pm, Dr. Day Care East Greenwich offers hours that fit into a working parent’s schedule.

As an early childhood expert, Dr. Mary Ann Shallcross Smith is excited to expand the Dr. Day Care family.  She has been in the profession for nearly 50 years and has received her doctorate in Education and Leadership.  Dr. Shallcross Smith was named an “Exceptional Emerging Leader” by Exchange Press, Inc., the only recipient in Rhode Island to receive this prestigious international award. This combination of experience and education has allowed Dr. Day Care to provide the best quality care and education for the children and families that they serve.

At Dr. Day Care, students will benefit from a unique curriculum that is based on the latest research on how children learn and develop early literacy, math, comprehension, physical, and social skills. Their administrators and educators create nurturing and secure environments where children are eager to learn in a way that’s natural and fun for them.  Specialized enrichment programs (Cooking, Gardening, Art, Foreign Language, Science, Sport / Physical Activity) are also offered to children enrolled at Dr. Day Care Learning Center.
