Altoona PA Daycare
1

Individualized

Your child is unique! The Begin With Us curriculum is designed to support your child’s uniqueness and individual learning style, while fostering positive social and behavior skills.

Our “whole child” comprehensive curriculum focuses on the developmental domains with particular emphasis on math, literacy and science.

2

Supportive

Our certified teaching staff will provide your child with a developmentally appropriate curriculum that will stimulate his or her growth in the following areas:

  • Personal and Social Development
  • Language and Literacy
  • Mathematical Thinking
  • Scientific Thinking
  • Social Studies
  • Art
  • Physical Development and Health
3

Effective

We ensure that each child’s experience at Begin With Us is monitored to suit his/her own individual needs. We accomplish this through observation and by utilizing various assessment and screening tools.

Parents receive assessment summaries three times per year (fall, winter, spring). Our low student-to-teacher ratio allows our teachers to spend more time working one-on-one with our students to better meet the needs of each child.

What Our Parents Say

Altoona PA Daycare
  • We have been part of the Begin With Us family for almost eight years. Our youngest is now a toddler and I love to see how much he learns each day. At different times of the day, I've seen him counting, working on the alphabet, participating in reading time, and singing and dancing. He loves his teachers and his friends. The teachers are loving, fun, and energetic. They all really do feel like part of our family, and we are so thankful for them!

    - Andrea G.
  • Our daughter loves Begin With Us so much! Mariah went into kindergarten fully above and beyond prepared. People are always in shock when they see how far along she is. I’m so thankful for the amazing, smart and caring staff. I am always recommending Begin With Us to all my friends.

  • We feel like Begin With Us is a second home for us and Sophia after having the most incredible last two years with our twins (Landon and McKenna) here! They have more than prepared them for kindergarten socially and academically. We LOVE this program and we LOVE the staff and teachers! Thank you for all you do Begin With Us!

  • My son has been enrolled at Begin With Us since he was 6 weeks old. As a first-time mother, of course I was hesitant about him starting daycare. With these women caring for my child, I had an overwhelming sense of comfort. Each and every care giver he has had contact with has been absolutely amazing. Under their care and guidance, I have watched my child develop by leaps and bounds both socially and cognitively. I am forever grateful to the amazing staff who give of themselves for our children.

    – Erin L.
  • Begin With Us has amazing teachers that make learning fun! It's a clean, safe and fun environment. I never have to worry about my child while I'm at work.
