About Children First, Inc.
Children First is the culmination of 40+ years of experience in Early Childhood Education for owner Vicki Durham. Children First understand you are entrusting their child's care to them. They realize the responsibility of that trust and strive to provide a quality of child care that exceeds the standards currently set by the Arkansas Department of Human Services.
Our goal is to provide the utmost care for the whole child, offering a curriculum centered on stimulating the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth of each child. Active exploration and hands-on experiences help the children touch, see, smell and manipulate the environment around them.
Children First is licensed by the Arkansas Department of human services and are also regulated by the Little Rock Fire Department and the Pulaski County Health Department. Unannounced inspections by these entities occur regularly to ensure adherence to standards.

Since we are associated with and on the campus of the Arkansas School for the Deaf, your child has the opportunity to learn signs and socialize with the hearing impaired and the deaf.
2. Good Rating from the Department of Human Services
DHS does regular surprise checks on all daycares and schools, and we always pass with flying colors!
