Carrie Child Care Lathrop Missouri

Our Story

Carrie’s Child Care was founded in 1995 when she started her in-home childcare. Carrie and her husband, Ray, grew their family into a family of 6.

In 2004, she received her in-home childcare license, as her own kids ventured off to school, and in 2008, she worked for accreditation.

It is her love for children and enjoyment of the profession that will keep her in this business for years to come.

In her spare time, Carrie enjoys being actively involved with her 9 grandchildren.

Our Mission

At Carrie’s Child Care 2.0 LLC, our mission consists of providing a warm and nurturing environment where children feel safe. Our Child Care Center offers various activities that are specifically designed to encourage each child’s growth. Through cooperative play and an engaging curriculum, kids reach their social, emotional, and physical milestones naturally and with ease.

Our Brand Story

We lost our 14 month old grandson to SIDS in 2016.

At the time, I was told about a tale about a dragonfly being a sign of a visitor from heaven. 2 weeks after his passing, a dragonfly showed up in our backyard. Literally diving and playing with the children.

Never in my previous 20 years had I or any kids noticed a dragonfly before. It showed up every day after. The kids looked for it, chased it, and played. Needless to say, I believe in the tale and am obsessed with dragonflies now.

KNOW that whether you have had an infant/child loss, and with our sweet Remington’s memory, a piece of heaven will touch each child that comes through our door.

Our children have been attending Carrie's for the last 6 years. They are a part of our family! I never worry if my children are being loved on or safe while I'm working. Communication is prompt and everyone is super friendly. The teachers provide great structure and fun daily activities for all ages.

I called several places and met several people when looking for safe, reliable care for my infant daughter. Carrie has come highly recommended by everyone I’ve spoken to and she’s got a very kind, caring, sweet, and honest disposition. Her fees are reasonable and she’s very thorough and easy to talk to. She’s been super easy to work with and I’m excited for her to be a part of my child growing and learning! It takes a lot for me to trust someone with my child and I can say that I trust her and her team of caregivers!

20/10 recommend Carries 2.0!!! I have had nothing but positive experience and I can be overbearing at times with 50 questions some days! They answer my questions promptly and most importantly give my little girl a safe, fun, loving and educational environment and I couldn’t ask for a better place for my girl to learn. She loves it there as do I love her being there!
