Welcome to Barb's Creative Care Daycare where we are here to provide the best care for your children of all ages. My name is Barb Van Horn and I have been operating my licensed daycare for 14 years now.  I have two full time workers that work beside me at all times.  We are a family business and we are here to love and care for your children as if they were our own.
