Fireflies & Turtles
6 weeks - 18 months
What’s good for you and your baby “feels right.” We know your little angel deserves exceptional quality of care, with commitment and trust that feels just as good for you too.
Compassionate, loving Care Fills Your Baby's Day
Imagine walking into a home-away-from-home that is filled with warmth, cuddles, and smiles for your sweet baby. Highly qualified, caring staff nurtures your little one in safety and security, with real-time updates for you, making you a big part of their day.
Following your lead Helps Your Baby To Adjust
Matching your routine as seamlessly as possible and making things easier for you is following your lead: your baby’s sleep schedule, feed times, etc. Feel relaxed and count on us to support you and your little one, connecting with you regularly, while gradually making any adjustments needed along the way.
a fresh start to food when Your Baby Is Ready
When your baby is ready to start eating solid foods, teachers work with you to ensure whatever you’re doing at home we follow through with you, including any dietary restrictions or allergies they may have. It’s never too early to start fresh, healthy eating habits. Several of our Schools participate in the Child and Adult Food Program (CACFP). For the Discrimination Statement, Click Here
spark your little one's curiousity With Engaging Classes
Even at this young age teachers can inspire creativity, through curiosity! Your child’s classes each have creative themes and teachers engage infants in a variety of stimulating activities daily.
Teachers Gently Introduce Your Baby To:
- Music and art
- Dramatic play
- Sensory activities that fine-tune motor skills
- Simple sign language as a basis for communication and language skills
meeting your needs, down
to the last detail
The center caters to you and your infant’s needs throughout the day (including lots of hugs, kisses, and cuddles, of course) and will provide you with a daily summary on “Kangarootime”, our ultra-convenient parent app, detailing your child’s feedings, changings, activities, naps and more.
A community feeling That Sets Great Examples
Even our littlest ones participate in the center’s community events, are part of the group, and learn to grow and thrive as an important part of the community. They see service to others first hand.
We build a strong relationship with each infant through intentional interactions that bond the teacher and child. We may play hide and seek with objects or puppets so the children can build an understanding that absence is only temporary. Having repetitive verbal acknowledgement of new interactions and circumstances helps the children build trust.
When a child is very young, they begin to move their bodies purposefully. We promote an infant’s gross and fine motor development by providing them with experiences that encourage them to move, reach and stretch. Our centers do not have any restrictive furniture that would contain an infant against their natural desire or physical development. For example, we will stretch with tummy time and reaching for toys or practice fine motor growth by surrounding the infants with various sized toys to grab, shake, fill, and dump.
Having an environment that is constantly describing, talking, questioning and responding is essential for an infant to understand language, learn new words, and make sense of their world. You will find our teachers describing the everyday tasks while moving around the classroom, such as, “Let’s change your diaper,” or “I see that you are shaking the maraca.” Using an enthusiastic and a positive tone of voice will keep the children interested in communication and it encourages them to respond.
Infants at this stage of development are learning to focus their attention for short periods of time. Our teachers will encourage the growth of an infant’s cognitive development by reading books, telling stories, singing songs, and doing fingerplays. Repetitive language and experiences help the children to connect with their environment as well as expand on it. This also allows for the infants to associate movements or objects with words.
Before children learn to read, frequent exposure to books piques their curiosity and helps them develop book handling skills. Our classrooms are filled with a wide variety of books, without restrictions on how they may use them, to encourage exploration and to help them gain a deeper understanding of what makes books so enjoyable.
Young children begin to understand cause and effect and discover that repeated actions yield similar effects. Counting while the children bounce with them, or while reading a book that has many objects on the page, gives the infants an opportunity to make those connections.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We have collaborated with a national security company that specializes in child care and will be more than happy to discuss our building security when you tour. To remain as safe and secure as possible, we do not want to advertise this information. Be sure to talk with the director when you come!
We have a medicine log where you would fill out all of the necessary information we need to administer the medication for your child. Medications must be in their original packaging and must be prescribed to the child.
We keep close track of the children’s allergies and will make any accommodations necessary. We welcome any replacement items that you would like your child to have however, we will make all accommodations that we can so you do not have to provide anything.
If your child has a very high fever, is vomiting, has diarrhea or is exhibiting symptoms of a contagious illness, you will be notified and asked to pick the child up. In cases requiring medication, we ask that the child only return to our care after 24 hrs on medication. Illnesses are dealt with on a case by case basis. Throughout the day we will keep in contact with the parents to update them of their child’s symptoms.

As a former childcare provider, I had a lengthy checklist of requirements and expectations when looking for a daycare for my son. The moment I walked in, I knew Magic Memories would meet all those items on my list and so much more. I am so blessed to be able to send my child into a loving and welcoming environment where he is cherished and nurtured by all of the fabulous staff. Thank you Magic Memories for providing my family with so much more than just childcare.

My daughter has been going here for 1 year now and she loves it. The teachers are friendly and I feel she is really growing and learning at Magic Memories !!
- Jasmine Simmons
My kids have been going here for about 6 months and we love it. The staff is friendly and professional. They are always happy to talk with me about my kids if I have any concerns or questions. There is a nice balance between learning from a well-designed curriculum and free play both inside and out -particularly during the school year. There are several great playgrounds for different age groups. They are well staffed, and because of this are able to be very flexible. We attend part time and are able to change our schedule as needed. Overall, we love it!

This has been the 3rd daycare that my son (almost 2) has attended and I can honestly say that I love and appreciate this facility and staff. The director and assistant director are so friendly and accommodating. The teachers really seem to care about the children. I do not have to worry about my son and the care that he receives during the day. I would highly recommend the Creative Care Green Lane facility!

Magic memories is a wonderful learning center. While moving from one city to another and trying to find the right school with before and after care for my two boys, i stumbled across magic memories Royersford. The staff is wonderful and I have built a great teacher-parent relationship with some of the ladies. They all take pride in caring for the children.

Once I walked into Magic Memories I knew it was the right choice for my daughter by its unique and family feel environment. The teachers were patient with my daughter adjusting in the beginning as well as answering all my questions throughout the year not just with emails but personal calls and face to face chats that helped build that secure and comfortable relationship.
