Providing excellence in child care and early education for the Delaware Community   

At Chubby Cheeks Early Education Center, we believe in the value and uniqueness of each child we serve. Our childcare experience is designed to promote each child_s own individual social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.   Our mission is to provide a safe and developmentally appropriate learning environment, which fosters a child's natural desire to explore, discover, create, and become a lifelong learner.  
Philosophy and Goals:
Chubby Cheeks Early Education Center staff supports the learning philosophy that children learn and develop best in an environment that makes them feel safe and loved. Chubby Cheeks provides enrichment programs that support Early Childhood Development and Growth based on Ohio's Learning and Development Standards in all essential domains of school readiness.  These standards include the implementation of Developmentally Appropriate Practices for each child's specific age group. The goal of our program is to provide a curriculum that promotes learning based on the children's interests while promoting social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development.  These domains will promote development in becoming independent, self-motivated, creative thinking, problem solving, self-expression, social interaction, and being ready for school success.  Physical exercise and outdoor play are a part of our daily routine.      

We strive to provide a secure, nurturing, and stimulating environment that enhances young children's:
Recognition of themselves as persons of value understanding of individuals who are different from themselvesRespect for themselves and othersDevelopment of self-regulationCreativity and imagination critical thinking skillsJoy, wonder, and knowledge of their work.
