I have enjoyed being in the "baby business" for over 30 yrs and our play-based childcare is filled with music, toy's, book's, friend's, & laughter,learning to share and care about one another.
Balanced days of age-appropriate play, learning activities & fun are provided, however our days are not fully focused on curriculum as "PLAYTIME"
is a wonderful learning tool!
Play encourages their creativities to become better problem solver's, develop's social & emotional skill's and is an important part of growing. In fact , play is critical to a child's growth and development.
I like the children to learn by "doing" , by which giving them a sense of independence , order & ability to concentrate. I promote positive social & character development, as well as care that is
stimulating to growing minds!
I promote practical life skills such as manners, sharing, educational activities , movement activities, group/individual time & indoor/outdoor play.
Provide healthy & yet ki
d-friendly meals & snacks.

I view family childcare as a time when I can give my love & nurturing to a small group of children daily! I enjoy every minute with them and experiencing
their milestones together.
I take many trainings to help me have a better knowledge of understanding children's need's & how they grow & learn in this ever changing world.
I give unconditional love to all the children in my care and their need's come first and above all else.
I understand that all children & situations are different and shall be evaluated and treated on an individual basis.
While in my care positive reinforcement will be used.
I believe the most effective ways of reinforcing positive behaviors are -praise,resect, and re-direction.It is important for all children to feel respected,
secure, loved, important & special.
They will know that I am always here for them to help or listen, but never to judge!
