About Us


 Paradise Babies is an Early Learning Center and Babysitting service located in Roatan, Honduras.

Both entities focus on providing age appropriate care and guidance, employing trained and professional staff, and setting high standards for early childhood education.

We are inspired by a Constructivist and Reggio Emilia inspired pedagogy approach.


Our Philosophy

We model high quality education through:


Child Respect.

We value and treat all individuals at Paradise Babies with dignity and respect. We model active listening, set and communicate expectations, and provide choices when appropriate. We believe all individuals, no matter what their age, deserve equal and fair treatment.


Child-focused Programming. Teachers and caregivers at Paradise Babies complete annual and ongoing assessments on children's development. The information gathered guides

and directs the curriculum we use every day. Activities and experiences at Paradise Babies are tailored to each child and focus on learning through play.



We employ loving and responsive adults who understand the importance of positive and caring relationships in the development of a healthy child. Paradise Babies

values and supports continued education and training for all of our educators.


Cultural Diversity.

Families touched by Paradise Babies represent many cultures and traditions. We accept and celebrate the differences that make us all unique. English and Spanish languages are spoken and understood by adults and children at Paradise Babies every day.


Safety Standards.

Health and safety are interwoven into every aspect of our work through healthy food options, low adult to child classroom ratios, inspected and maintained supplies and equipment, ongoing child health checks, and constant environmental safety

assessments. Paradise Babies is committed to modeling and defining health and safety standards for all early childhood centers in Honduras.
