About Us

Our Story


Welcome to Tots 'N Toyland! We are a state licensed preschool and daycare center offering experienced child care for children ages birth to school age. Our center is operated by myself, Erica Dorsey and two other fantastic women. I am in my thirties, a mother of three children, and I bring fourteen years of experience to our team. I am a former nationally registered EMT with expertise in childhood safety and life-saving technique and I insist on prevention and planning. I hold a CDA credential in Early Childhood Education. Reina Yeargain is in her twenties and is a graduate of Virginia Tech. She brings five years of childcare experience with a passion for early childhood development. She is caring, energetic and loves to read and lesson plan and also holds a CDA credential in Early Childhood Education. Rose Burkholder is in her forties, a mother of three children, and brings twenty-three years of experience. She is a former EMT, a former private daycare owner, holds a CDA credential and is a current teacher now educating school-aged children in our Kindergarten class. She has extensive knowledge of academic curriculum and early childhood development. All three of us women carry broad knowledge of early learning; including speech, fine motor, gross motor, sensory integration and social/emotional development. We are educated and experienced with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Epilepsy, developmental and learning delays and we are well versed in expected childhood milestones. We are dedicated to shaping your child's day into an experience that exceeds yours and their expectations. Working with us are thirty amazing teachers ranging in age from their twenties to their fifties. Each teacher brings a wonderfully unique perspective to our center and we respect them as our equal. This center’s success is directly related to the passion and unwavering commitment they show regarding the proper care of our children. 

We believe in small classroom sizes and individual attention for each child. Our classrooms are set up to offer individualized attention for each child and rich with opportunities for learning a wide variety of subject matter. We are so privileged to have the opportunity to work with your families, and we can’t wait to start making memories!

Affordable, Fair, Safe and Nutritious


Tots 'N Toyland offers affordable child care for children with all levels of abilities; including children with special needs. We have an ongoing partnership with The Speech and Language Center. This partnership allows us to focus on providing an inclusive environment for those children and allowing them to receive their speech, OT, PT and ABA therapies while they are at our center. We offer a fair opportunity for this vulnerable population to enjoy all the same experiences as their typical peers. We have a competitive pricing plan; and our low rates for child care allow you as parents to focus on what's most important, which is providing for and taking care of your family.

Safe child care is absolutely paramount here at Tots 'N Toyland. We have many policies in place to ensure a safe environment and we consider ourselves top-of-the-line germ-fighters!

Nutrition is also a big focus for us too. We serve only organic and natural foods; and all meals are USDA approved. All food is carefully selected to ensure it is free of all artificial ingredients and harmful additives. Our meal plan is built every month and is full of variety.
