Since 1946, Tartt’s mission has been to provide high quality childcare for professionals. Tartt’s is dedicated to caring for and nurturing the total child; our goal is to encourage the development of happy, confident, healthy children who are enthusiastic learners. Our programming emphasis is on helping very young children develop social, physical and academic skills they will need to succeed in school. Most children begin Tartt’s as infants and remain until they complete our program. This continuity of care provides a stable, safe and supportive environment where children are encouraged to indulge their natural curiosity about the world around them. At Tartt’s, children develop socialization skills by interacting with their peers and adult staff at the Center, and they develop fundamental physical and mental skills, as well as the self confidence that will ensure their success at school and beyond.
A Family Business – Four Generations
A strong work ethic passed down through the generations of Ms. Wilson’s family is a common thread that helps to explain the success, reputation, and longevity of Tartt’s Day Care Centers. All of Bessie Tartt Wilson’s children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren have attended a Tartt’s program as a child, and many have returned as adults to take on major roles within the corporation.
