About Us

Cross Lanes Child Care and Learning Center was founded in February of 2015. We are committed to establishing a foundation in which your child can grow into passionate and successful learners.

Since our inception, we have striven to provide the best care for your child possible. Our center is based on the following principles:
  • Education
  • Reliability
  • Safety
  • Compassion
  • Convenience
  • And Fun!

Safety & Convenience

Leaving your child in the care of someone else can be stressful and nerve-wracking! You want the best for your child and are concerned for their safety and wellbeing. Rest assured, we feel the same. Your child’s best interests and safety are taken very seriously here at Cross Lanes Child Care.


We use Procare to secure our sign-in and sign-out process, and we installed a keypad at the front door entrance for added safety.

In our efforts to become as convenient as possible, we are open 6:00 AM to 6:30 PM. We also accept credit card payments and have a mobile app that you can pay with as well.

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.

- Mr. Rogers

My name is Brittany Helman. I am the Assistant Director here at Cross Lanes Child Care. I always knew that I would end up working with children, as I grew up watching my mother take care of children from her home and other daycares. I have worked in childcare for eight years now.

I graduated in December 2017 with my associate degree in early childhood education. I’m a Level VII with WV STARS, have WVIT, WVIT 2 and am Safe Serve certified. I also plan to complete my bachelor’s degree in the future. I have been in administration for 4 years. I truly fell
in love with children when I began to see them do something that I taught them.

I have one dog named Bo, and two children Emberly and Waylon. I enjoy spending time
outdoors and hanging out with my family. I also enjoy watching and going to WVU sporting events.

I have been in the childcare profession for 19 years, with the last seven years being at Cross Lanes Child Care. I have always enjoyed being around children, so when the opportunity came to work with children, I decided to change
directions and do what I knew I was always meant to do.

In May 2017, I graduated with my associate degree in early education. I have completed One Step at a Time, ACDS (Apprenticeship for Child Development Specialist), ServSafe Certification, Medication Administration, and a Level VII on the West Virginia STARS registry.
I continue to attend training and classes regularly to continue my education.

In my spare time, I enjoy being surrounded by my family, friends, and dog, Luca. I enjoy being outdoors, camping, riding or just spending time relaxing in the pool. During the cooler months in enjoy crafting, making cups and shirts for the grandbabies.

We are open Monday through Friday from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm. However, we are closed on most major holidays and for two in-service days. We also have special events throughout the year. Please check out the list of important dates for more information. (The list is subject to change).



Our son has been here for just about a year, and we all have never been happier. He loves the teachers and is always excited to go. They are very informative of issues, and very kind and understanding towards each child. Always recommend this place to family and friends looking for childcare.”

My daughter has been going to the center since she was 10 months old. She is now 5 1/2 and I dread the day we leave to go to elementary school. They have loved her and treated her like family since day 1. I can not begin to list the things they have taught her. She is prepared to start school next year. Also, following rules, treating each other with respect, and using good manners are taught and expected. This center has become our family and I am very thankful to have them to help me raise my sweet girl”
