Our Most Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) | Nurturing Hearts Early Learning Center

Get answers to the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding Nurturing Hearts and our program offering. Do you have a question? Let us know.
Do I need an appointment to tour your facility?

You do not need an appointment to tour the facility. We do tours Monday – Friday 8:30 – 11:30 and 2:00 – 4:30. We do not do tours from 11:30 – 2:00 because those are our lunch and nap times. If you need a late evening appointment please contact the center.

Do the children go outside every day?

As long as the weather permits the children will go outside on the playground twice a day. We will refrain from going outside in bad weather, including extremely high and low temperatures.

Do you offer drop in care?

We do not offer drop in care. We have full time programs for all ages as well as part time programs (two and three days a week) for children ages 2-5 years of age.

Do you have a before and/or after school program?

Yes we do; however we do not provide transportation. There are four schools in the area that do pickup and drop off at our center.

Murnin Elementary
Cody Elementary
Hatchett Elementary

In order to qualify for transportation to our center you must first qualify for transportation from your home address. If you do qualify for bus transportation you must complete a form at your child’s school requesting that the bus picks your child up and/or drops your child off at our center. Your school will then fax that information to the South Transportation Router for approval and you will receive a call with your child’s bus information and times.

Do you provide care for school age children during school breaks and during the summer?

Yes we do have a program for school age children ages 5-10 years. Please call the center at least two weeks prior to needing care to reserve a spot for your child.

How will I know what is happening during my child’s day?

Parents can view their child’s daily activities at any time via the Internet. NHELC has installed cameras in every classroom that are linked to the internet so parents can watch their children from their computers, cell phones and other mobile devices. Parents will create a username and password to log on to a secure area on our website. This provides peace of mind and security.

Our toddler classrooms utilize daily sheets to document and share your child’s experiences. They will include how long your child napped, what and how much they ate throughout the day and when diaper changes or potty training took place.

What meals are included?

Breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack will be served daily at NHELC. Meals served at NHELC will meet nutrition requirements established by USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).
