It’s All About The Kids

Courtney’s Drop In Kids Care is family owned and operated. As a mother of four young children myself, I understand the needs and demands of an active family! I can relate to parents needing a convenient, reliable, safe, positive child care option for their family. As a mother, I also understand the natural curiosity and playfulness of young children! Both parents and children need an outlet and healthy time to get away and play! My hope is that parents use our facility for various needs. You may want to run errands, attend appointments, have a date night with your spouse or friends, or simply take well deserved time to pamper yourself. We are here to help you! There is no appointment or reservation necessary. Your children will have fun while they are here, and you’ll be confident your most precious gifts are well taken care of while they are in our care.

Children have always been an important part of my life. My sister, Courtney, was seven years younger than me, and I helped care for her while growing up. I’ve cared for many different families over the years in various capacities. I even worked in a drop-in child care facility as my very first job!

Who is Courtney?

Courtney’s Drop In Kids Care is named after my sister, who passed away at the tender age of 23, due to a rare degenerative brain disease. She was a beautiful soul that left a forever print on my heart. She taught me how to love and care for someone unconditionally. She too had a great love for children, and worked in a drop-in child care facility as a teen herself! Naming our child care center after my sister seems very appropriate as her child-like spirit lives on around us!

What the State thinks:

Drop-in/short-term child care is defined by law in G.S. 110-86(2)(d)(d1) as a child care arrangement where care is provided while parents participate in activities that are not employment related, and where the parents are on the premises or otherwise easily accessible.
