Our History

Heart Felt Childcare opened in May 2007. Heart Felt Childcare formerly known as “Rock” A-bye Childcare was founded by Iris Price. Iris started her center in her home and then she worked to transition it into a commercial space. She ran the center as a family based center. Everyone who came to the center would now become family.

Who We Are

Heart Felt Childcare consists of certified professionals who specialize in early childhood development for children ages 2 1/2 to 13 years old. Our childcare facility, located in Carteret, New Jersey, has been in operation for more than 15 years

Our Mission and Vision

At Heart Felt Childcare, we believe in the value and uniqueness of each child we serve. Our childcare experience is designed to promote each child’s own individual social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.

As caregivers and educators, our mission is to provide a safe and developmentally appropriate learning environment, which fosters a child’s natural desire to explore, discover, create, and become a lifelong learner.
