ABOUT US:
A Family Tree Daycare was incorporated in November 2007 as A Family Tree School Age Enrichment Program, LLC by two 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 an very excited to celebrate our 7 year anniversary.

As part of the state’s work under its Race to the Top – Early Learning Challenge grant, DCYF, BrightStars and RIDE revised and aligned regulations and standards to create a logical pathway for continuous program improvement. 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.
