Mission Statement / Philosophy

It is my pleasure to care for, protect, teach and nurture the children in a loving and understanding manner and provide attention that each child needs during the absence of the parent. We like to offer each child preschool styled learning experiences, developmentally appropriate activities and materials, and help him/her to gain a sense of both trust and independence by learning to do things for him/herself.

A schedule will be used so the children will feel secure in what happens during the day, but leaves the actual activities open to spontaneity and individual child preferences. We make every effort to provide children with a varied and stimulating program that encourages them to learn, play and explore. This includes group experiences, one-on-one experiences, structured and unstructured activities, and plenty of socialization. We use the Funsteps for Learning Preschool curriculum. I feel I have extra benefits to offer the children with my experience with music, dancing, and foreign language study in college. We are truly Musical Munchkins!

Discipline techniques and daily activities are planned to meet each child’s developmental level. We believe in promoting a very positive environment that focuses on each child’s strengths rather than weaknesses.

We are dedicated to providing children with quality play opportunities. Play includes exploring the world with all the senses, practicing physical skills, manipulating objects and mastering challenges.

We uphold old time values and courtesies so often lost in this day and age. We also emphasize taking care of children’s basic needs by providing healthy meals, regular naps and making sure we have a clean, happy and loving environment. Home childcare promotes early bonding, which encourages stability throughout life. We have built some wonderful relationships and are frequently getting calls from the children we raised wanting childcare for their babies now. We are a home away from home.
