Description

My name is Andi and I am a 34-year-old, married mother of 3 boys. I am a college graduate, former teacher, held a state of Kansas foster care license for 3 years, and I have had my licensed day care open since August of 2008. I am very experienced with special needs as I have a 9-year-old son with high functioning Autism, a sister-in-law with Rett's Syndrome and was a foster parent to children with a wide range of disabilities. I have cared for children in my daycare home with severe Autism, Asperger's, and physical developmental delays that have required physical therapy.

My rate is $175 per week for ages 18 months and up
My rate is $190 per week for ages 0-18 months

Holidays and days children are not in the daycare will be paid by the parents. You would be expected to pay me for my 2 weeks of vacation per year, sick days (should I have any), or family emergencies (should I have any). My days off are printed off and given to parents for the entire year each January so you will have months of notice for the days I will be unavailable.

My hours of operation are 7:30am to 5:15pm. I am located near the major roads of Interstate 35, Mur-Len, Black Bob, and 127th Street in NE Olathe.

I am within walking distance of Countryside Elementary and I DO NOT transport children in my vehicle.

I am a participant of the CACFP food program through Day Care Connection. You will be rest assured that your children will receive healthy beverages and snacks throughout the day.


We have a large, fenced in backyard with the following play equipment: Full swing set with glider, 3 swings, slide, and sit and spin; 3 plastic slides of varying sizes, a wagon, sports car Power Wheel, numerous ride-on toys, bicycles and tricycles, bubble machine, sand box, play table with several small chairs, balls, soccer net, basketball goals, tee ball stand, baseball mitts, frisbees, bats, etc. My home is located on a quiet, circle drive where we enjoy playing safely in our large, double driveway and sidewalks along tree-lined streets.

Pets:
We have one long-haired cat named Aspen who is 14 years old and is de-clawed. He is in our unfinished basement the majority of the day. We have 2 dogs. Maggie is an 11-yr-old cattle dog mix that is 45 pounds and Scout is a 10-yr-old Shih-Tzu that weighs 15 pounds. They are in our master bedroom on the second floor the majority of the day.

My home is smoke-free and our pets are kept on a separate floor from the daycare area 95% of the time.

***Here's what some of my daycare children's parents have said about my daycare!***


"My husband and I recommend Andi's daycare to anyone wanting a safe, fun but structured environment for their child(ren)." --Newberry family

"We highly, highly recommend Andiís daycare for any parents who are a little wary of sending their little ones to a big structured daycare center when they are young, and if we are blessed to have more children, Andi will be one of the first calls we make! Her years of experience in child care (from being an outstanding mother AND day care provider) are evident in the strong little people who move on from being in her care, ready to take on pre-school!" --Reeves family

"The Rauschers are wonderful people who we have had the pleasure of working with and sharing our family with. They have good morals and are a kind and compassionate family."
--Korf family

"When I first met Andi in person, I immediately noticed how clean her house was and how kid-friendly and baby-proofed it was. She was welcoming, informative, and professional in person. Andi's own children are wonderful, sweet, and very well behaved."--Blackley family

"You would never be able to tell which children are Andi's biologically and which ones are daycare children. She treats them all with the same love and attention."--Friedli family

"What stands out the most from their services is the fact that they genuinely care and love the children they watch. This isn't just a job for them, it's a way of life and their contribution to society. Andi focuses on nutrition, education, and play for all of her kids."--Pinkepank family
Admission conditions
Parents MUST conduct an interview with me in person at my home and MUST bring their children with them. It is important that your children meet me and my family before beginning daycare.

I sometimes provide part-time care and I will occasionally provide temporary care. Full-time care is best as it allows me to provide consistency with meals, activities, routines, educational lessons, and discipline. I am also better able to build a report with parents as we work together to give your child the best childhood they can have.
