Child Care of Southwest Florida accepting spring registrations


FORT MYERS — Child Care of Southwest Florida is accepting new student registrations for all five of its early learning centers in Lee and Hendry counties.

Each location is accredited through the National Accreditation Commission for Early Learning Leaders and is a Gold Seal Quality Care Program through the Florida Department of Children and Families. Additionally, centers maintain five-star ratings through the Early Learning Coalition of Southwest Florida.

Child Care of Southwest Florida accepts children ages six weeks through 8 years old, including students enrolled in Florida’s Volunteer Prekindergarten Education Program. VPK is a state-supported, high-quality early childhood education program that helps students develop a strong academic, social and behavioral foundation prior to entering school.

“The spring and summer terms are incredibly important for current 4- and 5-year-olds who will be entering kindergarten next fall,” said Chris Hansen, CEO of Child Care of Southwest Florida. “VPK helps students hit the ground running, and each of our locations still has space available for all age levels.”

Child Care of Southwest Florida follows the nationally recognized, research-based Creative Curriculum, which builds a safe, nurturing learning environment that develops young minds, supports families, strengthens the community and secures the future.

Scholarship assistance is available through partnerships with area businesses, foundations and generous individuals. Nutritious meals and snacks are included at no additional charge through Child Care of Southwest Florida’s participation in the USDA’s Child Food Care Program. The Hendry County location is at Children’s Garden of LaBelle, 88 S. Main St. in LaBelle.
