Leave It To Beaver Child Care Center was founded in 2001 by Diane and Wanda Beavers.  Both were in transition, one retiring from a long time career in banking; and the other always longing for her own business decided they would start a daycare center.  Diane had been working with children for many years through her church youth groups and then the daycare at her church.  Wanda always loved the business aspect of any business.  With both knowing their place and knowing that each had an integral part in making the business a success, they stepped out and started what we now know as Leave It To Beaver Child Care Center.  Their vision has always been the same, to cultivate the children so that they would grow with self-esteem, self-discipline, be socially competent, and grow mentally and physically.


Philosophy of Leave It To Beaver Child Care Center, is to be proactive in the lives of young children.  We know that each child is unique and a special person with physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs and abilities.  Our program focuses on the development of a positive self-image and fulfillment of each child’s potential.  With appropriate equipment and supplies, enriching experiences are provided with emphasis on sensory and perceptual skills; language development, and abstract thinking.  Each child is encouraged to explore and develop by a warm, understanding and capable staff.  Through our working relations with the City of Richmond Public Schools and
other community based organizations, we will be able to create
extensive programs that consolidate a proof of expertise.
