A Tradition of Quality Care

You can trust us with your child's safety and education. That always has been and always will be the priority at Bates-Rich. Over the 35 years we have been caring for children, we have become recognized as a quality child care center with a loving atmosphere where children can develop their emotional, physical and academic skills.

At Bates-Rich, each child is exposed to a variety of experiences that will arouse their curiosity, challenge their abilities and encourage self-expression. We focus every day on teaching the children to be safe, respectful, and be kind.

Active involvement with materials offers children opportunities for learning, development of skills and a sense of mastery of their environment. Center staff set limits to ensure the physical safety and emotional security of each child. We are committed to providing a nurturing, enriching environment for your child every single day.

The teachers and staff really care about the kids and it shows. It is a wonderful combination of learning, fun, and friendships. Teachers, staff, and directors are well-educated on food allergies and provide a safe environment for my PN/TN allergic son. In the past we have had a nanny, in-home daycare and another center, and this place by far is the winner.

Miss Rachelle

Rachelle “Chelle” Anderson has been with Bates-Rich for 31 years! She has spent most of that time working with infants and toddlers. She is our center opener and the “go-to” person for staff and families! Her expertise in infant development is vital to the classroom and she is often a resource for first time parents as their babies start to meet different milestones. Chelle’s love and dedication to our Bates-Rich families shows in her daily interactions with all. We are lucky to have her!
