Our Philosophy


Provide a dynamic learning experience, utilizing “growing-edge” strategies for active learners in a performance-based curriculum.  Our high-caliber child care center is a five-star licensed center by the North Carolina Division of Child Development meeting all Mecklenburg Health Department and Environmental Standards.  Your child is our number one goal for care, education and growth.  Their health and safety will be protected by security entry and exit, attendance procedures, staff and family accountability, nutritional assessment, and web monitoring.  As a family at DHLC, you may want to “peek” in from time to time using our WatchMeGrow Feature secured by your personalized login accessed via any device.


Our early childhood education curriculum-based approach means that you can trust that we will challenge your child with developmental and social skills.  As your child passes from our care into the public or private school system, we want to know that we have set a strong foundation in their social and cognitive skills as well as allowed them to achieve a positive self-esteem toward themselves, classmates, family and towards learning.
