All About Quality
Love Your Child's Care Childcare, LLC has offered a cozy educational home environment to children since 2009. We give all our students room to learn and grow healthfully, creatively, and intellectually. Prior to a traditional school environment, we strongly believe children need the opportunity to learn and grow in a secure and loving family-home setting that facilitates learning through exploration and discovery in a prepared and secure environment with experienced nurturing teachers.
Love Your Child's Care Childcare, LLC is committed to provide stimulating, challenging, and developmentally appropriate activities to encourage and inspire the heart and mind of each individual child. We are devoted to developing self confidence, self respect, a passion for knowledge, creative avenues for self expression, and a sense of responsibility to influence our community to use their gifts to inspire others.
We live and breathe a "Pay It Forward" mentality.
As proud participants in the "Paths to QUALITY" program! It is our number one goal to be one of the best in-home childcares on the Southeast Side of Indianapolis. Planning a building expansion, we will make our little corner a movement, arts, music, and developmental learning center. We are dedicated to providing an optimal learning environment preparing our young students for a successful future! You will find a comfortable, clean, dependable, passionate, educational, loving, friendly, and organized atmosphere at Love Your Child's Care Childcare, LLC.
About the Founder's
Kelly Dawn Jones
Kelly is a champion for her community. She believes quality early childhood education will change our country's current circumstances by not only investing in today's early childhood educators, but by also investing in tomorrow's leaders. Guiding our children down a path of creativity, ingenuity, and passion for their visions inspire her to see the bigger picture of how each life effects the entire world, especially considering the global economy and internet technology. Educating with the idea that her companies may be responsible for teaching the next President of the United States, or the next Governor, Senator, or Legislator, she is ardent in her drive to succeed.
Growing up in a low-income lifestyle, and currently a single mother she organically knows the plight of working families today. Raised by a stay-at-home mother, and required to be a working mother, she is ready to fight for all the youth that cross her path to have a chance to attain their dreams no matter what their current circumstance. She knows the only way for our country to rise is for our community to reach down beside them to the nearest child, take them by the hand, and teach them how to succeed, not just how to survive! Empower them with ideas, arm them with skills, and teach them how to charge forth with passion, dedication, devotion, and fervor!
Kelly's resume is rich, and her drive inexhaustible. From her Bachelor degree in dance from Ball State, to her life and teaching experience in New York City, and her current entrepreneurial, educational, and lifestyle goals, she cannot be stopped as she paves a way for young children and their families to reach their own goals no matter how immense!

Daily School Year Schedule:
Our daily schedule is directed by the children's interests, individual needs, and goals with direction from the Indiana Foundation for Indiana Academic Standard for children from Birth to 5.
Summers are much more relaxed and intended to give all our children a break from structure, although we are still learning as long as we are playing!
Bathroom Time and Clean Hands scheduled before and after meals, after outdoor play, and after nap plus anytime requested.
Outdoor play is a very important part of our playing to learn time for every age! We encourage the children to explore, and find peace within our outdoor classroom. With a Sand Pit, a Dig Pit, Water Tables, and small pebbles our students explore sensory skills, and develop fine motor skills from digging to China, or scooping in the Safari! We encourage parents to provide play clothes, extra clothes, insect repellent, and sunscreen in the summer.
Heavy coats, hats, scarves, gloves and boots, are encouraged as we love to build snowmen, snow forts, and snow angels!
We participate in CACFP with Day Nursery as our Progam Sponsor!
