My name is Michelle, I've got 4 kids of my own ages 4 - 10 and I have been married to Jason for almost 13 years now. I have a licensed home child care. I know it is difficult to find quality, loving care for your child and I feel it is one of my jobs to make your children feel comfortable and at ease here, so you can too!
We like to play with play dough, read, play outside, take walks, dress up, color, and lots more.
I encourage the learning of basic signs starting with about 8 months old. Being able to sign 'please', 'all done', 'more', 'yes' and 'no' are so helpful.
With the toddlers, my goal is to help them learn their letters and what the letters say. My own children learned to read at ages 3 and 4. Also, I try to intorduce them to basic math concepts such as adding and noticing patterns.
This is not a formal educational program. We learn best in our day to day activities.
I am current on CPR, First aid and STARS training. I am fully licensed. I have a current WA state backround check.
If you are looking for childcare in the Spanaway area (My neighborhood school is Pioneer Valley) then feel free to give me a call. We can set up a time for you to come and check it out or email me with any questions you may have.
The perfect spot that I have available would be for a teacher's child(ren). If you are a teacher or school employee in the Bethel School District and you are looking for care, then give me a call!
Please be aware that I have a dog. Call for current openings.
