I am 54 year old and mother of a college student. I have a background in Medicine having trained as a physician in my native country, Mexico. I have two years training in Pediatrics, including child development. I am certified in adult and child CPR as well as First Aid. I am licenced by DCFS.
I worked 11 years in a residential facility for developmentally disabled children and adults. During the last two years I headed the literacy program teaching reading, writing, math, and computer skills.
Located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Jefferson Park. The entire lower level of my home is dedicated to my daycare with a separate side entrance.
The daycare is set up as a safe environment for your child. With childproof cabinets and doors. We have periodic fire drills and we have fire extinguisher and carbon monoxide alarms located throughout the house.
Through a nurturing environment and caring staff we provide the building blocks for your child's development, education and socialization skills. With preschool activities, adaptable to toddlers and preschoolers, we incorporate structure into play and learning. We include basic sign language and beginning spanish as well as introduction to the computer. Play and exploration is equally important and incorporated in the daily routine. Weather permitting your child will be able to enjoy recess in a safe, enclosed back yard. Meals and naptime are scheduled but the daily routine is flexible to accomodate each child's stage of development.
Current openings for school aged children only during the winter and summer break.
