We are a preschool in Noblesville, following the concept of “learning through play” and recognizing that each child is unique while learning at their own pace. We care for children from 0 to 6 years old, and provide a wide range of age-appropriate resources and activities to encourage their development daily.
Simple. We are here to care for your child the way you want us to. We listen to our families and implement their desires into each child's program and daily regimen. We welcome change and flexibility, because no child is alike. Our curriculum consists of one-on-one care that is catered to meet the specific needs of the individual as we offer a first-class early learning education.
Our spaces allow us to be creative in planning activities and lessons for the day. We are unique in the fact that children of all ages get the opportunity to see each other throughout their stay at The Family Place. Our open concept of teaching gives staff the chance to be extremely creative in their plans as they arrange programs with your child's needs in mind.
The Family Place was started in 2008 by Owner and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Charity Holland, aka Dr. MommyC, CEO of The Family Place. Dr. MommyC’s original intent was to create an in-home atmosphere that would be enjoyable for children and design a place that they could grow and mature daily. Her initial childcare design was birthed out of the personal frustration she had due to the lack of concern for meeting the changing needs of her own child when he attended an in-home childcare setting. She desired something that would truly help with the essentials for her growing son. She knew if she had the desire for quality care for her own son, others may feel the same way about their children. Her frustration birthed something wonderful, as she planned a solution to the growing problem of quality care for all children.
Dr. MommyC has always been a risk-taker and created "outside of the box" teaching where children were concerned. Today, her desire is unchanged; now at a larger scale. From 2008 up until now, she has served the Hamilton County area with a Nationally Accredited in-home, paths to quality level 4 childcare that grew from one home to three homes, in the heart of the community.
She has always had the desire to do the in-home concept "bigger", under one umbrella, and finally saw her utmost dream come to pass with a new location in 2014. In the summer of 2018, she expanded the building to 8,000 square feet of play space along with the re-branding of a more suitable name; The Family Place Early Enrichment Academy Inc. Just recently she moved to an even larger facility in 2021, with over 12,000 square feet of fun. Now, in 2023, the plans to open a new location in Carmel, is underway.
Dr. MommyC, CEO of The Family Place, is the mother of two miracle children and a wife of 25 years. She is a recent graduate of National University where she obtained her Doctorate of Education (EdD) degree, specializing in Early Childcare Education. She is also a mentor and business coach for others in the field. Her persistence for excellence still holds true today, as she coaches and mentors her team to pursue higher standards of operation.
Dr. MommyC believes in the innovative approach that gives children a bright and positive start in life as she encourages both exploration and discovery, as well as emotional intelligence and building friendships.
Safety is the core value that is concerned with the protection of employees, families, and other stakeholders from harm. This value is implemented through policies, procedures and training programs that aim to prevent accidents, injuries, and illnesses in the workplace.
Honesty & Integrity
Honesty and Integrity are the core values that are related and work together. Honesty refers to the quality of being truthful and straightforward, while integrity is the adherence to a strong moral code. Together we will demonstrate a commitment to being transparent and trustworthy in our dealings with employees, customers, and other stakeholders. This creates a positive reputation and promotes trust and confidence in the organization. Employees are expected to act ethically and with integrity in their work decisions. They are encouraged to speak up and raise any concerns or issues of integrity they may see.
Strive For Excellence
Strive for excellence is a core value that focuses on achieving the highest level of quality and performance in all aspects of an organization’s operations. It encourages employees to set and achieve high standards, continuously improve, and strive for the best results. We are committed to providing the best possible service and experience to our customers, and to being the best in the early education industry. We foster a culture of innovation and learning, encouraging our employees to take initiative, and reward those who consistently perform at a high level.
Education & Learning
Education and Learning are core values that emphasize the importance of continuous development and improvement for both the organizations and its employees. We invest in the professional and personal growth of our employees and promote a culture of learning and development to those we serve. This is displayed with ongoing training programs, mentoring, tuition reimbursement and other educational opportunities. We are positioning ourselves to stay current and ahead of the curve in the early education industry which also helps in attracting the very best and retain top talent in this industry.
Equity & Inclusion
Equity and Inclusion are core values that promote fairness and equal opportunity for all individuals within the organization, regardless of their background or identity. We value equity and inclusion and are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive work environment, where everyone is treated with respect and dignity. This includes actively addressing and eliminating any discrimination bias and creating opportunities for underrepresented groups to succeed. We will also be the organization that values equity and inclusion and address the systemic issues that may prevent certain groups from achieving equal access and opportunities. With this we are stronger and more effective teams to improve our relationships with our customers and community.
