Welcome to Chatham School House

Chatham Slider2School House is a quality home-based day care located at 110 Main Street, Chatham, New Jersey. It is the only home-based child care which enrolls infants as well as pre-school age in the Chathams. Chatham School House has had much success in working with infant population and the infants have then remained throughout the pre-school years at Chatham School House. This has provided a natural base of customers for longer periods of time and less turnover of children, which has been beneficial to both the provider and the children. The School House is the only home based day care which opens Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Infants 2014 sixSince home-style day care programs are usually conducted in a home, the environment naturally tends to be informal and comfortable.  When teachers and children are comfortable in their environment, it encourages close relationships among the children, between the children and the teacher, between the parents and the teacher, and between the parents themselves; much like an extended family.

The low adult to child ratio also allows the teacher to observe each of the children in his/her care and more easily identify individual needs and learning opportunities in order to customize the curriculum when needed.  This means that children are more likely to get individualized, one-on-one attention.
