My purpose for being a child care provider is to provide nurturing, loving, developmental care for all my daycare children. It gives me great pride to know that I have made an impact on their little lives and for them to have a great start in life and school.
I provide all meals, except for formula, which meet USDA requirements.
I provide age appropriate learning activities, including teaching children their ABCs, Shapes, Colors, Body Parts and when ready to write their first name. When I feel your child is ready I do have a report card that they are tested on several things ie colors, shapes, body party and more.
We do have a schedule that we adhere to. Television is only on briefly in the morning, when children are arriving and getting settled. I am not a daycare provider that lets children sit in front of the television. If that's what you are looking for, you will not find it here. A variety of children's music is played throughout the day.
We also have a rewards system. If your child has no more than 2 time outs a day, they are rewarded with a sticker at the end of the day. On Friday, if your child has received a sticker 3 days out of 5 than he/she is rewarded by picking a prize out of our PRIZE BOX.

Please feel free to contact me by phone, email or through my website under the "Contact Us" form.
I have no admission requirements. I do charge a $50.00 deposit to hold your child's space if you are not planning to start immediately.
