Short Term Child Care

Copy of child care for sterling flyer

While the current public health emergency means children should stay at home as much as possible, we recognize that may not be an option for essential workers who continue to report to work.

We will prioritize providing child care to families of essential personnel. With that in mind, all children, parents and staff will be screened prior to entrance to Once Upon A Dream. These screening questions are taken from the CDC and WHO recommendations.

​Under our care children will be placed into appropriate age groups and our program has been altered to increase distance between children.


  • To give parents a sense of security around the health, safety, well being, and education of their children while they are in our care.​

  • To provide every child with a safe, fun, and growth-oriented experience that helps develop a stronger sense of self; strengthens creativity and problem-solving skills; and fosters curiosity, cooperation, enthusiasm for learning, and a sense of accomplishment.

  • To provide for the physical and emotional well-being of each child by creating an atmosphere of warmth, safety, and acceptance that is stimulating and allows the child to feel a sense of belonging.

  • To maintain high quality service through excellent instruction, a mixture of traditional and innovative programming, fun, and safety.
