I've been licensed to care for children in my home since 1992. Since that time I've taken children of many different family dynamics.
My home is smoke-free. I do have pets: 2 dogs, 3 cats and 2 turtles. At no time is any child left alone with any pet, even though my pets have never caused harm to a child, a pet is still an animal and in my opinion should never be left alone with a child.
My program is designed to allow the freedom for each child to grow to his or her full capability. We do have a learning program, free play, and out door play. Infants have a safe area for floor time as well as swing and bouncer time.
