HB Child Care’s mission is to provide a safe, caring, and a professional child care service to meet the needs and interest of the families in my community.
HB Child Care envisions to meet the needs of each child by providing a nurturing environment where they can develop their skills, abilities, and interest. As such, we make sure to asses and monitor each child to determine their unique needs, as we strive to create a developmentally appropriate environment. We encourage an open communication policy for parent, guardian, or provider so each family will gain peace of mind.
About the Owner
Locally operating in Lexington Park, Maryland, HB Child Care is owned and directed by Mrs. Tonya Okafor and continually serving the county of St. Mary. Because of her love for children, she institutionalized and established the center in August 2009. We proudly cater to kids 8 weeks to 12 years old and so with Military Families (NACCRRA Approved).

What Makes HB Child Care Unique?
Founded by the dedicated soul and passion of Tonya Okafor, a wide range of high-quality, age-appropriate childcare services is also extended not only to the children’s welfare but to the community as well. Her experiences, extensive training, and educational attainment as a Masters Degree holder in early childhood development at Towson University are just some of the assets why HB Child Care stands out. She has specialized an application so parents can conveniently keep in touch with the teachers and director. HB Child Care has a small group setting, enabling kids to be more focused and helping them develop their social and emotional skills. Reliability, trustworthiness, and professionalism are what HB Child Care can guarantee. We maintain a conducive learning environment where children can explore, learn, and discover.
Aside from specializing in childcare, Tonya has offered various preparatory and school-age programs as well. We are credentialed by the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC), Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) Credential Level 4+, and Maryland Child Care Association(MSCCA) member.
