Children’s Harbor-Chesapeake, located in the South Norfolk area of the city is known as a “neighborhood” center. Opened in 1981, CHC has been the childcare provider to two and sometimes three generations of families! Parents and Grandparents often come back to bring their children because of the positive experience that they had themselves. We are one of four centers under the name of Children’s Harbor and our agency is over 104 years old!
We believe that all families should have access to quality care and education, despite their socioeconomic status. Therefore, we are proud to offer these services through our United Way scholarship program. The families are very grateful to be able to take advantage of this program and often let us know how much they appreciate Children’s Harbor.
Just recently we were very happy to become NAEYC accredited not long after receiving our 3-Star rating through VSQI (Virginia Star Quality Initiative)! It was a lot of hard work, but well worth it! Our hard-working teachers and staff really pulled together to make sure that we were (and are) providing a level of quality care and education that results in successful children not only in kindergarten, but throughout life!
