A Typical Day at Tina's Tykes - Daily Schedule

We provide child care Monday through Friday every week except for the days which we are closed as indicated here.

A daily schedule gives children the stability and security they need early on in life. That's why we strive to provide a stable framework that adds structure to our daily lives but also leaves plenty of room for spontaneous and additional activities.
