One of DHCS' primary goals is to provide a loving and home-like atmosphere where children can learn to become competent in every aspect of their lives. The term "competence" is meant to denote a feeling of self assurance in life and is exemplified by statements such as "I can do it!" What sets DHCS apart from similar preschools in the area is that we have smaller size classrooms and low teacher-child ratios to provide an intimate and focused learning environment. Another asset that sets DHCS apart is that it is locally owned and operated for the past 30 years. With owners on-site daily, we can ensure our staff and teachers provide the highest quality child-care possible. Unlike most corporate based preschools, on site ownership also provides families in the DHCS community with the unique opportunity to discuss the Program, your family or child's potential special need, or anything else with us. Other companies may offer similar services, but we are certain that our services are the best, and come with a personal family touch.
