I am licensed by the state of calif. for 12 years. I have CPR and First Aid Training. I am on the state nutrition program. I attend workshops and conferences pertaining to childcare policies on a regular basis to keep me well abreast on all childcare issues, both state and county wide. I am licensed for 8 but I choose to keep my ratios down to no more than 6. Each child is nutured and loved as many call my home their home away from home. I concentrate on teaching the children fine motor skills, self-help skills, sharing and getting along with others. We have many toys, puzzles, story books, arts and crafts to keep busy throughout the day.
