About Kids Villa Waring Station Road
Inside Our Child Care Center
At Kids Villa Waring Station Road, our day care center features a secure keypad entry system and five spacious, fully equipped classrooms divided by age group. Our child care center also has a separate indoor gymnasium and multi-purpose room for continued gross motor development, small group interaction, and extracurricular activities. It’s an incredible space to have for the days when the kids can’t go outside due to bad weather!
Kids Villa Waring Station Road has more space for outdoor activities and play than most other centers in the area. We offer two spacious fenced-in playgrounds that are divided by age group and only accessible by classroom doors. Shock-absorbing protective surfacing surrounds all play structures for added safety. Adjacent to the playground is a large fenced-in field where the kids play soccer, run obstacle courses, and play games and other sports!
