ABOUT US:
About A Family Tree Daycare A Letter from Miss Erica and Miss Chris A Family Tree Child Care | owners Erica Saccoccio and Christine Alexander. We would like to thank you for selecting A Family Tree Daycare for your childcare needs. We would like to personally welcome you to our center. We are parents just like you who want to very best for our children. Let us tell you a little bit about us. A Family Tree Daycare was incorporated in November 2007 as A Family Tree School Age Enrichment Program, LLC by sisters, Erica Saccoccio and Christine Alexander. Both Warwick residents for most of their life, they wanted to take their years of child care and youth leadership experience and open a program that helped provide parents with safe, affordable, childcare during working hours. Their focus was to provide exciting and innovative programming that would provide the children with opportunities to make a connection with the Warwick community and support and foster the growth of these future leaders. Working with their professional teaching staff, A Family Tree Daycare has grown from one school age location serving just 25 families in April of 2008 to operating four locations including childcare services for infant, toddler, pre kindergarten and school age children. We are proud and honored to be a leader in childcare services.

The Quality Continuum for early childhood education programs begins with the foundational requirements of DCYF licensing/BEP regulations. As programs make quality improvements they move up through the 1-5 Star BrightStars rating process. The highest bar in the quality continuum for preschool and kindergarten programs is approval under RIDE’s 2013 CECE Standards for Approval.
