Home Sweet Home was founded in 2001 and serves children from 2 months to 12 years old. Our childcare program runs year round. Our mission is to go beyond just daycare. We saw a tremendous lack in quality care in the Brooklyn area as we toured local centers. We refused to create a curriculum around sitting in front of the TV, aggressive enrollment leading to crowded classrooms, poor cleanliness standards, negative reinforcement instead of redirection, lack of creativity, outdated furniture and toys, poorly balanced meal plans, weak educational plans and dozens of children left unprepared to enter school and excel amongst their peers. We wanted to break the trend and provide premium childcare services based on the standards we held for our own families. We believe children experience the deepest level of comprehension and education when they are having fun. Our mission will always be to create an atmosphere that breeds feelings of confidence and pure joy in all of our students. We opened the first advanced private childcare program in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
