Our Mission
The Transportation Children's Center has been serving the needs of working parents and their children since 1986. With our safe and attractive environment, and our outstanding staff of childcare professionals, parents can have complete confidence that their children are getting the best possible care. Our role is to not only take care of children while their parents work, but also to provide an environment where those children will attain emotional, social, physical and intellectual strengths to prepare them for the challenges of a rapidly changing world. The parents in our program are able to go to their jobs knowing that their children are being cared for in a setting that is safe and healthy, and where the goal is to help children early in their lives to become happy, peaceful, giving adults with much to contribute to society.
