Welcome to Walnut Grove
Walnut Grove Child Care Centers, Incorporated is an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE) as well as an Equal Opportunity Child Care Provider.
Walnut Groves’ mission is to provide the highest quality of child care possible. Our developmental program includes age-appropriate activities to help develop and enhance your child’s intellectual, emotional, physical and social growth. Activities shall include large motor skills, small motor skills, language development, music, art and social interaction in a safe, clean, loving environment.
Each child brings with them their own unique personality and family experiences. The children develop at their own pace.
You will have daily contact with your child’s teacher to discuss his or her developmental progress. You will be able to find out if your child is having a good time growing and learning.
Jennifer began to look into a way to work at home and be with her own children. Her goal of providing higher quality child care for families in the community soon developed.
Jennifer enrolled in college courses to obtain the child development degree needed for a proper child care facility in Virginia.
After several years of night classes, being a mother of three, and running a full-time home child care center, this goal was obtained.
Small Fry Home Daycare was a success. Small Fry Home Daycare operated with a continuous waiting list until Jennifer had her first child care center built in 1990.
Our staff is trained in CPR, First Aid, MAT(medication) training, Food Handling, and child development and safety training. Their education is on going and encouraged.
Food is catered by a state licensed and approved catering company. You may send a bag lunch from home if you wish. We are a peanut free business, so please do not send peanut products to school.
Our centers have emergency response plans that have been approved by the State of Virginia Department of Social Services. We have coordinated our plan with local and state officials, police and fire departments to respond properly to any event, natural or man-made crisis.
